Model State Affordable Housing Policy (2015)

The aim of the Model Policy is to create an enabling environment for providing “affordable housing for all” with special emphasis on EWS and LIG and other vulnerable sections of society such as Scheduled castes/Scheduled Tribes, Backward Classes, Minorities and senior citizens, physically challenged persons in the State and to ensure that no individual is left shelter less. The Policy further aims to promote Public Private People Participation (PPPP) for addressing the shortage of adequate and affordable housing. The target group for the said policy would be urban poor classified by MoHUPA, Government of India as persons belonging to the Below Poverty Line, Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) and Lower Income Groups (LIG) and would be applicable to all cities and towns including that of Census Towns, to enable planned affordable housing provision. The policy covers various kinds of housing viz. Ownership, incremental, rental/social, shelters and other forms of housing. The key interventions and action points are focused on land, finance, legal and regulatory reforms, technology support and its transfer, provision of infrastructure, satellite/integrated townships, institutions, capacity building and sustainability Concerns.  The draft Model State Affordable Housing Policy (2015) outlines -

  • liberalized development control regulations for making land available
  • Waiver of charges/taxes and increase fund flow to affordable housing
  • Legal & Regulatory reforms – for entitlements/ tenure rights, regulatory frameworks
  • cost effective sustainable technologies for bringing down housing prices
