For low-income urban population, government has launched an
innovative housing scheme, Rajiv Gruha Kalpa, with civil infrastructure and free
land being provided by government. The government will provide Rs.30,000
towards the cost of land development charges. The beneficiaries should
contribute 10 per cent of the remaining Rs.70,000. The rest of the amount would
be arranged in the form of loans from banks.
The affluent class has the resources to obtain and build
residential property, and the Government is providing housing facilities for
the poor in the State. But, the middle class often feel unattended. To address
this problem, the Government is launching a housing programme called “Rajiv
Swagruha”. This programme will enable middle class families to own houses in
urban areas. The housing scheme will have Integrated Townships in approved
layouts. The townships would encompass best infrastructure facilities, with
high quality construction.
