The new government of India will be facing a new and daunting challenge, with the country struggling to maintain a housing stock that is now on a downward trajectory, with many people living in cramped, crowded and dangerous housing.
The new government is keen to build a housing infrastructure to meet its ambitious target of having 20 million houses by 2020, but it is facing mounting pressure from the opposition and local residents who fear that the government is pushing too hard to build more houses.
As the number of people living and working in crowded housing continues to rise, the government must find a way to improve the condition of the new housing stock.
“If the new government tries to push a policy that’s not building more houses, the situation will get worse,” said M Ravi, a former official at the Urban Development Ministry.
“There will be more and more people living under such conditions.
And that will worsen the problem.”
This is a real challenge.
We have to find a sustainable solution.
We cannot continue to be dependent on foreign help.
We need to build housing where we can, not where we need to.
We will build housing in areas that have a low rate of housing turnover, but where the need is high,” he added.
While the government says it is focusing on building more housing, critics say the government needs to build much more housing to meet the target.”
We are talking about building more than 20 million homes, that is what the government said, but this is not building houses.
It is building the wrong kind of houses.
We need more housing,” said K.K. Singh, a member of the urban planning board of the National Urban Renewal Mission (NERM).
In Delhi, a growing number of local residents have complained that the new administration is not focusing on making housing more affordable, and is instead pushing to build houses that are less spacious, unsafe and uncomfortable.”
They are not focusing in any way on building housing.
The government is only interested in making housing that is more spacious, better-fitting, safer and better-designed.
We are not happy about this,” said Anjali, a resident of a residential area in Delhi’s south.
In one of the city’s biggest projects in recent years, the new city has built more than 1.2 million homes in its five districts, a number that has ballooned since it began.”
The government has made a huge mistake in thinking that this is a housing plan that can solve all our housing issues.
It has built much more than the number they have proposed,” said R.R. Bhargava, a political scientist and author of “The Future of Housing in India”.”
The problem is that we need much more affordable housing.
That’s not possible without a comprehensive housing plan, which can address the social and environmental issues,” he said.
The National Housing Development Authority, the country’s planning agency, said that the goal of its 10-year plan for housing was to provide a basic standard of living for all.”
In a city of 25 million people, housing is a critical component of quality of life.
But it is also a fundamental human right and an essential part of the fabric of the country,” said S.
The agency says it plans to build 20 million affordable housing units, but the number is not yet clear. “
We have to work towards building more affordable and inclusive housing.”
The agency says it plans to build 20 million affordable housing units, but the number is not yet clear.
“The government needs a holistic and ambitious housing plan for the country to be able to meet this goal.
A housing plan is not just a housing policy,” said Mishra.
The government is also keen to make more affordable new housing.
“One of the key elements in building affordable housing is to build and maintain affordable units,” said Rajeev Gupta, a deputy minister in the prime minister’s office.
“It is also important to have a strategy that addresses the needs of those living in poor housing.
It’s not enough to just build affordable housing,” he also added.”
As the government builds housing, we need a more holistic and inclusive plan for building housing that can address all the problems we face,” said Singh.
The plan for affordable housing in the city of Delhi has also not been reflected in how many affordable homes are being built in other parts of the national capital.
The city has about 1.5 million units of housing and more than 6 million units are on the waiting list for construction, according to an official with the city government.
But despite the new approach, many residents are unhappy.
“It is a government that is going backwards,” said Kamlesh Singh, an employee of a construction firm.
“People are living in unsafe, crowded, and unsanitary conditions.”
He said he is worried that he will have to relocate to a different part of Delhi when he leaves work to take up another job.
“I feel very frustrated with the government.
They are not making any effort to build affordable units, which are needed for everyone.
