Two crore units to be built under ‘Housing for All’ programme

Under the programme which will involve private participation, six lakh houses will be built in Delhi, 16 lakh in Mumbai and four lakh each in Chennai and Kolkata, a PMO statement said, adding these figures may go up after the demand assessment is completed.

The programme will begin with a baseline survey to assess the demand for such housing and identify resource requirements amid the Prime Minister’s instruction that first priority should be to towns and cities along the banks of river Ganga and its tributaries.

“The programme proposes to build two crore houses across the nation by 2022. This would cover both slum housing and affordable housing for weaker sections. It will cover urban poor living in slums, urban homeless and new migrants to urban areas in search of shelter. It would cover metros, small towns and all urban areas,” the statement said.
