Rajasthan Housing Board (RHB)
Shortly after securing in-principle approval from urban development ministry, the Rajasthan Housing Board (RHB) has decided to fast track the construction of housing units on public-private partnership (PPP) mode under Housing for All Scheme of the central government. The board is planning to construct 23,000 houses across seven cities. As per the proposal, RHB would provide funds per unit to the firm which will take up construction work on the board owned land parcels. The board will monitor, inspect projects and ensure quality control and the process to invite firms on PPP model is expected to start in March, said official sources. The board has already mapped the land where the construction will be carried out for which the tender process would start shortly. The move will help the state government to meet the target set by chief minister's ambitious 'Housing for All' scheme. It may be recalled that RHB has proposed to construct 12,000 units for the economically weaker section (EWS) and lower income groups (LIGs).
