Housing for All (Urban): scheme guidelines 2015
At the slum decadal growth rate of 34%, the slum households are projected to go upto 18 million. 2 million non-slum urban poor households are proposed to be covered under the Mission. Hence, total housing shortage envisaged to be addressed through the new mission is 20 million. The Mission will be implemented during 2015-2022 and will provide central assistance to Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) and other implementing agencies through States/UTs for: In-situ Rehabilitation of existing slum dwellers using land as a resource through private participation; Credit Linked Subsidy; Affordable Housing in Partnership; and Subsidy for beneficiary-led individual house construction/enhancement. The scheme will cover entire urban area consisting of 4041 statutory towns with initial focus on 500 Class I cities in three phases. Credit linked subsidy component of the scheme would be implemented across the country in all statutory towns right from the beginning.
