QUANTUM JUMP OF 50 MILLION HOUSES

CHEAP  HOUSES  ?


At the ASSOCHAM " Smart City Summit " on 10 Feb 2016 , Shri Nitin Gadkari said :

" At a time when only one percent of India's population can afford a house above Rs 10 lakh , the government is not only committed to building smart cities but also to offering affordable houses below Rs 5 lakh

If we make available houses at below Rs 5 lakh , 30 percent people can buy them

Apart from focusing on building smart cities, providing affordable houses to the poorest of the poor also tops the agenda of the Narendra Modi government 
Under one such venture , an experiment was done in Nagpur to construct a house on steel structure using 70 % fly ash

The construction cost of the building came to Rs 1000 per sq ft . We will be able to provide a 450 sq ft house within Rs 5 lakh "


On 2 Sept 2015 , I sent following email to several Ministers ( Union + Maha ) / CII / ASSOCHAM / FICCI etc :

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

DREAM   HOUSE   BY   2020  ?

Shri Ravindra Waikar , Minister for Housing , Maharashtra Government , says ( DNA / 16 Aug 2015 ) :

"  We want to provide a dream house to everyone by 2020 . We won't compromise on the quality of construction . It will be at par with that of private builders . We are working on a mission mode "

He is referring to planned construction of 5 lakh " affordable " houses ( flats ? ) , by 2020

No doubt , this is a very daunting task but it is possible if there is " Political Will " - which is evident from above statement of Shri Waikar


Here are my few suggestions that Shri Waikar may want to consider :

#   SPECIFICATIONS

     *  Carpet Area = 400 sq ft
     *  Selling Price = Rs 10 lakhs ( Rs 2,500 / sq ft )

#   LOCATIONS

     *  Building Clusters to be located on the outskirts of cities ( important )
     *  100 Clusters of 50 buildings ( each with 10 floors*10 flats/floor )

#   LEGAL FRAME-WORK

     *  A Special Purpose Vehicle ( SPV ) , named,
        Dream House Private Limited ( DHPL )

#   INDUSTRY STATUS

     *  Infrastructure Industry with 100 % FDI thru automatic route

#   SPV OWNERSHIP

      *   10 % equity by Maha Govt ( in lieu of land )
           Maha Govt to pass on this equity to land-owners
      *   90 % equity by WinSun Decoration Design Engineering Co ( China )

#   SHARE  CAPITAL

      *   Rs 10,000 Crores

#    ROLE OF MAHARASHTRA GOVERNMENT

      *  Acquire land ( under modified Land Acquisition Act )/hand over to SPV
      *  Comprehensive Town Planning of each Cluster like a Smart City
      *  Building Design / Drawings / Material Specs
      *  Quality Control / Material Testing Lab at each site
      *  A Project Monitoring Team at each site / Use of PERT
      *  Site surveillance using CCTV cameras
      *  Make available land for setting up 3D House Printing factories
      *  Interconnection of site offices with HQ , thru VPN
      *  Blanket permissions ( IOD / NOC etc ) issued in advance
      *  OC based on certification from Site Project Manager
      *  Maintenance of flats thru Coop Societies of each cluster

#   COMMERCIALS

     *   Neither SPV , nor Maha Govt to pay any royalty to WinSun for
          transfer of technology

     *   Maha Govt to act as the agency for allotment of flats to eligible public
          in Maharashtra thru a " Lottery System "
  
     *   Selling Price of flats will be fixed by the Maharashtra Government
         once a year , based on a pre-agreed cost - escalation formula, which
         will be explained in detail on SPV web site
          Calculation of each upward revision shall be made public
        
     *   SPV to hand over possession of flat to the allotee upon receipt of
         full payment

     *   SPV shall not be permitted direct selling of any flat in Maharashtra

     *   SPV would be free to set up factories in other States and be free to
          sell flats built there, thru Open Market Sale


#   ROLE  OF  WinSun

     *  Setting up of 20 factories for 3D Printing of flats
     *  Assembling of 3D printed flats at sites
     *  Transfer of 3D house printing technology to Indian project managers /
         site engineers / construction workers


#   TECHNOLOGY

     *  3D ( house ) Printing Technology developed / patented by WinSun


>    WHY  WinSun  ?

     #   On 29 March 2014 , WinSun constructed TEN , 3D printed houses ( 200 sq meter each ) in Shanghai, each costing $ 4,800 ( approx Rs 3 lakh ! )


#    On 17 July 2015 , using its 3D printing technology , WinSun built a 2 storey villa , in just 3 HOURS  !


#    WinSun holds 98 patents for construction materials


#    For 3D printing of houses , WinSun , mostly uses recycled construction materials


#    3D house-printing technology saves,

      *  30% -60 % of building materials

      *  70 % of production time

      *  80 %  of construction cost


#   Egypt Government has placed on WinSun , an order for supplying 20,000 pre-fabricated , 3D printed houses

#   In Egypt , WinSun will establish 12 Dream Factories ( to build pre-fabricated houses ) , within 2 years

     These factories will mostly use desert sand as its main construction material , which was found ideal for 3D printing of houses !


#   In next 3 years , WinSun will set up ( in JV with local parties ) , similar factories in 20 countries , including Saudi Arabia , UAE , Qatar , Mexico , S. Korea , Russia , Morocco , Tunisia , and USA

       
As someone has said :

" It is OK to build castles in the air , as long as you know how to put foundation underneath , later on "

Even if you are dreaming of building 5 lakh castles !


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I do hope , Shri Gadkari remembered to invite Mr Ma Yi He, CEO of WinSun ( Shanghai ), to attend the Make in India Week , inaugurated by Shri Narendra Modi , yesterday , when he said :

" We want to construct 50 Million houses by 2022



There is no time for incremental changes . We want a quantum jump . Do not wait . Do not relax  "


How else is  China able to construct , one brand NEW city capable of housing ONE MILLION people , every 20 days ! - continuously for past 15 years  ! - and for next 20 years  !
