Urban housing scheme goes to towns

    Urban housing scheme goes to towns
    In a renewed initiative the government has decided to allow urban housing projects in villages bordering towns and cities, Housing and Urban Affairs Minister Hardeep Singh Puri said that the secretaries of housing and rural development ministries have held a round of talks to take the program forward. As a matter of fact, this will be implemented in unregulated areas falling in the outskirts of city or town limits as haphazard development and construction in these areas have made these zones unlivable and these could prove fatal in case of any natural disaster. All these years, concepts such as 'lal dora' have been part of the governance system in cities like Delhi. Since urban regulations are not applicable in these land parcels, these are proving to be a disaster in these areas. There has also been an increasing trend of low-paid migrant workforce finding rented accommodation in nearby villages, which lack basic amenities. On this score, the ministry will soon come out with model rental housing policy and rent control law to push availability of accommodation to huge number of migrant population in such areas.
