Those affected by the July 2014 Malin landslide would get their permanent houses by Diwali. The houses are being built using Aluform technology, which vastly reduces chances of on-site mishaps, making it one of the safest systems for building construction currently available.
The construction work was reviewed Sunday by chief secretary Swadeen Kshatriya. “The best technology is being used for permanent shelters for those affected by the tragedy. The technology involves efficient, light-weight and flexible material and cuts down on the need for brickwork, concrete leakage and use of construction equipment,” he said.

There would be 80 permanent shelters in the proposed settlement, which is coming up at Aamade village, close to Malin village. The settlement would also have a primary school, water tank, gram panchayat office and a healthcare centre. Each family would get 450 sq ft settlements by Diwali, Kshatriya said. The landslide on July 30, 2014, had killed 151 people.
