Why we need Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana?by Randhir Pandey Team Lead - Marketing
Today, sometimes we are surprised to see a rickshaw puller owing a mobile phone but not a ‘pucca house’ for his family. An essential requirement ‘a house’ for a human being is becoming luxury and unaffordable with increasing urbanization. Whereas luxury items like mobile phone, refrigerators, Air Conditioner are getting affordable for the people living at the bottom of the urban pyramid. Not only the state governments but investors, developers and real estate regulatory firms should take ‘affordable housing’ in India into prime consideration. We know that real-estate sector in India is booming both in value and volume. They should work on adjusting their interest more towards social growth as well.
In-flow of people in urban cities is rising with growing opportunities due to more and more Emergence of IT/ITes sector, which has revolutionized most of this segment and brought in better infrastructure facilities. This has escalated housing demands and also hiked the prices, disabling the lower income group in the urban society to own a house.
Keeping this in view our Prime Minister, Narendra Modi has brought this scheme called ‘ housing for all 2022’ or ‘Pradhan mantri Awas Yojana’ that aims to provide a proper house to each citizen of India by the time our country achieve it 75 years of Independence. ‘Housing for all 2022’ especially focusing on the weaker section or low Income group. A beneficiary family will comprise husband, wife and unmarried children.
