Movin' On Up in Mumbai

From the International Herald Tribune :
Under an inventive government program in Mumbai, builders raze
entire slum neighborhoods and use part of the land for tenements
to house the original residents. In return, the developer wins the
right to build lucrative towers on the rest of the land and pays
nothing but the cost of the slum resettlement
