Affordable Housing Policy-2009 was launched in Dec. 2009 but due to certain shortcomings and bottlenecks in the implementation of policy, much progress could not be achieved. New policy has been prepared after review of existing policy and incorporating learnings from the past experiences, feedback from various stakeholders and new policy initiatives by the Government of India. This policy is named as "Chief Minister's Jan Avas Yojna-2015".
Department of Urban Development, Housing and Local Self Government, Government of Rajasthan, undertook a detailed exercise in understanding various Policy Initiatives of Government of India and formulated the present policy for building stock of EWS/LIG houses to be constructed by Government agencies like Development Authorities, Improvement Trusts, ULBs, Housing Board etc. and by private sector. To attract private developers for construction of houses for EWS/LIG segment of the society provisions have been made in this policy by giving a host of incentives to the private developers.
