Rajasthan starts affordable housing scheme

Published & Updated as on - 2010-02-16

The Rajasthan government today launched the affordable housing policy-2009 which aims to build 1.25 lakh houses for the low income and economically weaker sections of the state.
Launching the policy, state Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said that it was aimed to meet the housing shortage in the state, especially in economic backward section (EWS) and low income group (LIG) categories.
"The policy was announced in the state budget in July this year, according to that 1.25 lakh houses would be built in five years," he said.
The Chief Minister said that along with executing the policy, slum areas of the state would be regularised by August 15 next year.
Divulging details, Principal Secretary of UDH department G S Sandhu said that it will be executed in five models.
Applicants under EWS and LIG categories will get house in Rs 2.40 lakh and Rs 3.75 lakh respectively. Private housing developers will also be included in the policy.
In the first model, minimum limits have been set for government agencies (Rajasthan Housing Board, Jaipur; all Urban bodies and municipal bodies) to allot/construct/plot/ houses/flates in their schemes.
In the second model, selected developers will take up construction of EWS/LIG flats on minimum 40 per cent of total (their) land and they would be free to construct high income group (HIG) flats on remaining land as per their choice, and would be given other related facilities.
Selected developers can take up construction on EWS/LIG flats on the land under acquisition by the government under the third model. In the fourth model, earmarked government land would be offered free of cost to the developer to be selected through an open bidding process.
"The developer offering the maximum number of EWS/LIG flats free of cost to the ULB would be awarded the project in which at least 50 per cent houses should be of EWS category," Sandhu said.
The last model is based on various schemes approved by the Union government and also on the lines of 'Mumbai Model' of slum redevelopment with participation.
According to the policy, the flats will be available in four story buildings. Size for EWS and LIG categories will be 325 sq feet and 500 sq feet respectively.
Initially, the government has given principal nod to 21 private developers to construct 10,000 houses in all in Jaipur and Bhiwadi of Alwar.
"The government is planning to construct at least 20,000 houses in the current fiscal year, and 50,000 houses every year," Sandhu said.
