Cidco-con­structed houses com­prise around 44% of the to­tal houses in Navi Mum­bai. The to­tal hous­ing stock cre­ated is about 270476 units, out of which, 119900 units have been built by CIDCO and 150576 ten­e­ments by pri­vate sec­tor.

The most di­lap­i­dated ones are the JN type build­ings at Sec­tor 9 and 10, D-type build­ings in Sec­tor 1, B and C type build­ings in Sec­tor 2 and B 10 type build­ings in Sec­tor 15 of Vashi, apart from var­i­ous build­ings in sea­woods area of Nerul, in Kopar Khairane and CBD Belapur, which were the first nodes to be de­vel­oped.

The build­ings that are the most dan­ger­ous are Vashi’s JN1 and JN2 type build­ings. The de­ci­sion has come as a huge re­lief to the thou­sands of res­i­dents here.

Sev­eral build­ings con­structed by Cidco in Vashi, Kopar Khairane, Ghan­soli, Airoli,

San­pada and Nerul are in a pa­thetic state. The NMMC has de­clared 92 build­ings dan­ger­ous.

On Fe­bru­ary 5, 2015, the state govern­ment granted 2.5 FSI for re­de­vel­op­ment of Cidco-con­structed dan­ger­ous and di­lap­i­dated build­ings that are more than 30 years old.

The no­ti­fi­ca­tion that has been pub­lished in the of­fi­cial gazette states that ev­ery res­i­den­tial ten­e­ment will have a ba­sic en­ti­tle­ment equiv­a­lent to the car­pet area of the ex­ist­ing ten­e­ment plus 35% thereof, sub­ject to a min­i­mum car­pet area of 300 sqft.
