    Many believe Dharavi, India's largest slum in the heart of Mumbai, is also Asia's largest. Wrong, says a United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) report. Karachi's Orangi township is Asia's largest slum.

    "Dharavi is not Asia's largest slum. Karachi's Orangi Township has surpassed Dharavi," the Human Development Report for Mumbai, compiled with the help of UNDP and released by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), said.

    The proposed Rs 9,260-crore Dharavi Redevelopment Project (DRP), drawn up by architect Mukesh Mehta and part of Maharashtra government's plan to transform Mumbai into an International Finance Centre, is yet to be implemented despite being approved in 2004. The DRP envisaged a residential area with schools, hospitals and other amenities, four commercial zones including a Gems and Jewellery district and a leather district for Dharavi. The slum's families were to be accommodated in 225 sq feet multi-storied tenements.

    Orangi, not Dharavi, is AsiaÂ’s largest slum, claims UNDP - Indian Express

    Orangi Town is the Largest Slum in Asia and the Islamic World.

    Congrats to the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.

    Bold difference between Orangi and dharavi town

    *In orangi town they have roads,in dharavi town they don't know anything named as road
    *in Orangi town they have bricks made proper home in dharavi town they live in tin made houses
    *In orangi town they have they have toilets while in dharavi they go to either the big naala or 2nd one i saw in the slum dog millionaire movie..more of an evolution of present day toilet.
    *In orangi town they have proper gas supply through pipesline to each and every home.while in dharavi town last time they heard of gas was under british rule

    i will end this with a photo of each site

    dharavi town

    i could not see any brick house.

    you watched the slumdog millionaire movie?you must have also seen the evolution of present day toilets in the movie.

    LCD cost way too less these days.and those living the life of super rich guys in dharavi are not actually poor but rather the follower of rss,they go for terrorist activies and than hide in dharavi town.they are not the real resident of dharavi town.

    Congrats Pakis!!! You are ahead of us in lot of things.Pakis are now giving us competition in slums now.We need to have a special session in Parliament to discuss this issue.

    India : Mere paas Dharavi hai, Slums hai, Poverty hai, tere paas kya hai?
    Pakistan : Mere paas Orangi hai... beat ya! :pakistan: :hurray:



    Next time any Paki starts rants about slums/toilets/poverty we can simply say Orangi.

    the mullah who owns 13 factories and employ 600 people is follower of RSS. If RSS is so strong there how the hell mullah made 13 factories.

    Get out of RSS phobia.

    if u see video properly u can see dharavi houses made of bricks there roof is made of either tiles or tin on inclined angle as its too much of rain and straight lenter roof will drip water everyday.

    last i did not say everybody in dharavi use toilets. but yes govt has provided portable /mobile public toilets.which contradict ur statement. of no toilets and gas and electricity

    Speaking of Slums n Slumdogs I only tell people to remember Mahatma Gandhiji He said the following :-

    "India lives in Villages develop the villages first and if Urbanization happens it will be disaster of epic proportions." Such Disaster is called as Dharavi..........

    Saddly to say if any country Does not develop its ground based Rural Infrastructure than Urbanization disasters r bound to happen......

    Goggle Pic the images of slums in Jakarta Indonesia

    I don't know about ur Jinnah DADA though what he quoted abt pak and karachi....

    It will not be the largest slum very soon.

    Already there has been one bomb blast just now.

    They are going to ensure its demolition by 'terrorist means'!
