NAREDCO Conclave ‘VISION MAHARASHTRA – Housing for All by 2022’ (22nd April 2015)
NAREDCO Conclave ‘VISION MAHARASHTRA – Housing for All by 2022’ was organised to deliberate on strategies and action plan for augmenting supply of housing stock, especially in EWS and LIG segments where shortage is 96%, to provide shelter to all by 2022 and create sustainable frame work and mechanism to take care of mis-match between demand and supply in future. As per a KPMG and NAREDCO report, by 2022 there would be a total requirement of 9 crore affordable houses nationally, including the current shortage of 4 crore houses in both urban and rural India. Expected investment of Rs 65 lakhs crore, to create 9 crore housing stock by 2022, provides the much needed opportunity to address the problem of unemployment, shelter and growth, all three together. To cater the housing need on this scale and to make it a reality, the governments on central and state level, all agencies and developers are required to come on single platform to discuss the related issues and hurdles and chart out the roadmap for Housing for All.
In view of the same, NAREDCO had organised ‘VISION MAHARASHTRA – Housing for All by 2022’ in Mumbai. Shri Devendra Fadnavis, Hon’ble Chief Minister, Govt. of Maharashtra, addressed the inaugural session and put forth his views with regards to the housing requirement in the state of Maharashtra.
