  • The Haryana government is formulating a new housing policy for the lower middle class segment with an eye on the 2014 elections. The policy, which is being drafted, is termed as the refined version of affordable housing scheme introduced three years ago. The town and country planning department is giving final touches to the scheme which is expected to be notified by April first week. The policy has provided relaxation in statutory levies like change of land use fee (CLU), external development charge (EDC), infrastructure development charge (IDC) and stamp duty.

    "The affordable housing scheme could not work out well due to cost factor. Now, under the new policy we have made all efforts to attract maximum players. The draft will be notified after it gets the government's nod,'' general of town and country planning department director Anurag Rastogi said.

    Faced with litigations over the affordable housing scheme, the state government is now expecting to build around 3 lakh units under the new scheme. In May 2009, Haryana government had formulated a policy for affordable housing with an objective to provide dwelling units to people belonging to lower and middle income category. Of these, 40,000 units were to be built in Gurgaon, 30,000 in Faridabad and Panchkula and another 30,000 in places like Rohtak, Hisar, Panipat and Sonipat.

    Later, the state government issued an amendment allowing private builders to obtain licences under the policy. This was challenged in the Punjab and Haryana high court. The project also fizzled out as the cost worked out by the government did not suit the colonizers. Government had announced that the cost of dwelling units under the affordable housing category was not to exceed Rs 16 lakh in Gurgaon-Manesar Complex (high-potential zone), Rs 14 lakh in Panchkula (periphery controlled area) and Faridabad-Ballabgarh belt (medium-potential zone) and Rs 12.5 lakh in the rest of Haryana (low-potential zone).

  • Maximum flats that can be built in an acre under this policy? is it 180 per acre?
  • Huda has already received more than 50 applications from builders. Apartment cost will be 4000 psf. 5% area in each sector will be used for affordable housing. There is no restiction to have more than 10 acres of land as in the case of Group housing society. A step in the right direction. Let us see how gurgaon market reacts to new policy.
