Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

Housing for All ? Status Report



Business Line ( 10 Sept 2016 ) carries a news report , titled :

"  Housing for All in the slow lane "



Following are its highlights :

#  " Housing for All " mission was launched in June 2015 , to construct 200 Lakh houses by 2022

#   As of date, construction of 9 lakh houses has been approved by the Ministry of Housing

#   Of these , some 72,000 houses are under construction across 7 states

#   So far , only 2,883 houses have been completed ( 1719 in Gujarat / 718 in Chhattisgarh / 446 in Tamil Nadu )


#   Out of 36 States plus UT , 15 have not even sent their proposals to the Ministry !



At this rate , by  2022 , expect following :

#    5 Lakh ....  under construction

#    25,000.... completed

#      5,000 .... allotted



Having raised the EXPECTATIONS of poor people of India , it is still not too late for Shri Narendra Modi  to ask, Niti Aayog to re-frame the " HOUSING  FOR  ALL "  mission along the following lines :


QUANTUM JUMP OF 50 MILLION HOUSES
