Task Force on Promoting Affordable Housing

Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation, set up a Task Force for developing transparent qualified criteria and a separate set of guidance for affordable housing in PPP projects for circulation to states, aimed at developing recommendations to create an enabling framework for increased private sector participation in Affordable Housing.

This report of the Task Force, after elaborating on its Terms of Reference, presents the findings of a Rapid Review of planning approaches adopted in different states. It then discusses and compares the various criteria used to define Affordable Housing, reviews the institutional and procedural issues related to plan approvals and the key incentives recommended by state governments for this housing segment. The next section of the report presents the main recommendations of the Task Force which are categorised into four buckets namely, (a) Supply side financial interventions; (b) Supply side non-financial interventions; (c) Demand side financial interventions; and (d) Demand side non-financial interventions.
