What the hell is going on? This is what happens when you get a new apartment
New Delhi: New Delhi: The country’s new urban housing stock is growing rapidly and many people are facing homelessness, the chief housing officer of a city recently told a panel discussion at the India Housing Policy Summit.
The government has allocated more than Rs 4,000 crore for urban housing in the next 10 years, he said, adding that the government was working to address the “over-population problem” and to make the urban housing market more hospitable to the poor.
The panel, chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, discussed the challenges of urban housing and how to build more affordable housing in urban areas.
The government has announced a series of measures to help the poor, including a new tax on landless farmers to make sure they are compensated for the loss of land.
The housing boom in the city has attracted the ire of the Congress, which has alleged that the prime minister and the finance minister have failed to tackle the housing crisis.
It has also been alleged that poor families are being left out of the scheme.
In December last year, the Centre announced a $1.5 billion subsidy for urban development, aimed at ensuring that poor people get access to affordable housing.
In May this year, Congress leaders called for the release of the data on the number of households in the country’s urban housing, which is the data collected by the Centre.
On Tuesday, Modi, who has launched the new Urban Land Development Programme, also announced the release for rural and tribal areas.
But he was vague on the specifics of the subsidy, saying the state governments would get the money for their poor areas.
It is the first time a chief housing official has spoken out on the housing problem, according to the Indian Express.
New urban housing developments in the capital have come under fire in the past, including one proposal to build a new public housing complex in Gurgaon, which was rejected by the city council in 2010.
“We will provide the land to those who need it and not the rich, who have a lot of money and are taking advantage of poor people,” said Sanjay Mishra, who headed the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) in charge of development of urban areas from 2003 to 2013.
The new housing plans have attracted criticism from the government and the opposition.
The opposition Congress Party has demanded the release and redistribution of land for the poor and said the plans would create poverty in urban India.
The BJP has said the new plans are “the worst case scenario”.
The opposition parties, however, said the government should help poor people by giving them land to build affordable housing and improve the quality of the existing housing.
