IRCDUC has evolved as a platform to enhance the capacities of communities,
facilitate community-led initiatives, disseminate information about laws and policies, and undertake policy researches related to land and housing rights of the deprived urban communities.
Since 2011, IRCDUC reaches out to 67 settlements in the cities of Chennai and Madurai with the support of our 21 committed volunteers. These inspiring individuals enable us to reach towards addressing the disconnect between the people and the policy makers.
