New Delhi: Gearing up to meet it’s deadline of 2022 and fulfilling it’s promise of ‘Housing for All’ the current government is determined and is now seeking professional help in order to micromanage the flagship initiative by setting up a dedicated programme management unit. So far, operating with a joint secretary, director and deputy secretaries at ministry of housing and urban affairs (MHUA), the Mission would get technical, administrative and managerial support through the new unit. This will certainly take place with the collaboration and support of the state units and these private units will aid to make the entire process, smoother and result oriented.
According to sources, the unit would coordinate with states and help them in framing annual action plans to chart out strategy for building affordable houses. The government had set a target of building 1.8 crore affordable houses, which has been scaled down to 1.2 crore after door-to-door surveys.
