Consider local factors in 'Housing for All' project: PM

Consider local factors in 'Housing for All' project: PM

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who reviewed the “Housing for All” programme of the NDA government on Thursday, suggested the officials to consider local conditions such as lifestyles and habits while implementing the programme.

Chairing a high-level meeting to assess the work done so far, the prime minister emphasised the need for all official agencies concerned to adopt a flexible approach.

The prime minister said the approach should take into account local conditions such as building material, habits and lifestyles, a PMO statement said.

“A tribal may prefer a house made from traditional local materials rather than bricks and mortar; and therefore, should be facilitated accordingly,” the prime minister said.

In rural areas, the goal should be achieved “village-by-village” so that the progress is tangible, and can be monitored effectively, he added, according to the statement.

For urban areas, Modi suggested that solid waste can be used to make bricks, which would be useful as building material, it said.

Along with constructing houses, all common facilities including connectivity should also be provided. Newly constructed houses should also take into account the required norms in disaster-prone areas.
