Assocham organized a national summit on ‘Housing for All’. The main concern raised by the industry experts was lack of incentives for developers and not much clarity on the affordability concept in the segment.

Lalit Aggarwal, Co-Founder, Signature Global Group said, “It’s very difficult to achieve the target by 2022, it’s already 2018 and a small percentage has been covered so far. The major reason for this can be that players entering the segments are not being treated differently. The price at which I get land is equal to those starting a normal housing project, so why would one enter this segment.”

As per the ‘Housing for All’ scheme introduced by PM Narendra Modi, the aim is to build approximately 2 crore houses in the urban areas of India by 2022.

“The affordable housing segment is a great move and the benefits of this would be seen over a period of time,” said Ravindra Sudhalkar, Executive Director and CEO, Reliance Home Finance Ltd.
