“Additionally, the government is fully committed to improving the present infrastructure of MMR as well as other cities across Maharashtra. We look forward to partnering with the private sector in fulfilling the Prime Ministers vision of Housing for all, by 2022,” the minister said at a conference here.
Earlier this month, Union minister for housing and urban affairs Hardeep Singh Puri had said that the government is set to achieve its ambitious target of ‘Housing for All’ by mid next year, much earlier than its stated deadline of 2022 given the rapid pace of sanctions so far.
“Our target is to sanction total 11 million homes, of which 4.5 million units have already been sanctioned,” Puri said here on Tuesday. “In addition to this, we are sanctioning around 3-5 lakh urban units every month. With this pace, we’ll be able to finish our target by mid of 2019,” Puri had said.
