Redevelopment plan divides Mumbai locality

Model project for regeneration in Indian metropolis enjoys wide community support, yet some residents are sceptical.

    Local people in a southern district of the Indian city of Mumbai have decided to do something about improving the rundown area they live in. It is hoped the self-funded project, which enjoys 85 percent community support, will set an example for regeneration in other parts of the city. But as Al Jazeera's Faiz Jamil reports, not everyone is convinced that such schemes are a good idea.
