The proposed redevelopment of slum tenements on the Marina beach will not be funded by the World Bank anymore.

This is following the expiry of the deadline of December 2011 for the completion of the project. The project could not be completed as the Tamil Nadu Slum Clearance Board was unable to relocate families on account of stiff resistance by residents of Nochi Kuppam, Dooming Kuppam and Srinivasapuram.
