Encouragement for affordable housing schemes to States

Shri A. K. Selvaraj

Will the Minister of HOUSING AND URBAN POVERTY ALLEVIATION be pleased to state: 

(a) whether it is a fact that Government is encouraging all State Governments to come out with more affordable housing schemes in the State and if so, the details thereof; and

(b) whether it is also fact that Government is considering to provide more sops to affordable housing schemes such as tax relaxation and clearances, etc. and if so, the details thereof?



(a): The National Urban Housing & Habitat Policy (NUHHP): 2007 advocates that States/Union Territories (UTs) should focus on accelerated flow of funds for housing (including various cost-effective slum-related options) and infrastructure in order to augment sustainable and affordable housing stock in the country. In order to supplement the initiatives of States/UTs, the ‘Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) (Urban)’ Mission has been launched with an aim to provide central assistance to implementing agencies through States and UTs for providing houses to all eligible families/ beneficiaries by 2022. The mission envisages support to construction of houses upto 30 square meter carpet area with basic civic infrastructure. 

(b): The Union Budget 2016-17 provides Service Tax exemption on affordable houses of upto 60 square metre constructed by Central or State Government including PPP projects. 100% deduction on profits to an undertaking in housing projects having dwelling units upto 30 square metres in four major metro cities and 60 square metres in other cities approved from June 2016 till March 2019 and is completed in a time frame of three years from approval, has been provided.

Guidelines of Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) (Urban) mandate States/UTs to have a single-window, time bound clearance for layout approval and building permissions at Urban Local Body (ULB) level. The Model Building Bye Laws, 2016 released recently by the Ministry of Urban Development, Government of India also suggests various options for streamlining approval process for construction permits including single window system, online sanction, integration of agencies outside ULBs for online clearances alongwith delegation to local authorities.
