Government of India has announced its flagship scheme to provide “Housing for All” which envisages construction of 20 million houses by 2022. The strategy to achieve this goal would be through Affordable Housing, Slum Redevelopment, Interest Subvention and beneficiary led construction respectively. To achieve the target of 20 million houses, there is an urgent need to have standardized model designs and planning norms which could be utilized by various implementing agencies in the states for efficient and effective project planning and execution. This compendium consists of good practices of mass housing projects which have been successfully implemented by various State Governments and has been prepared by the joint team of Building Materials and Technology Promotion Council (BMTPC) and Housing & Urban Development Corporation (HUDCO).
