Suggestions & Objections for EWS Housing Guidelines
One of the objects of the Housing Policy of Government of Maharashtra (2007) is to facilitate affordable housing and create adequate housing stock for Lower Income Group (LIG) and Economically Weaker Section (EWS) on ownership or rental basis.
In accordance with the provision contained in section 37(1AA) Government invited private developers, land owners and MHADA for Development of Affordable Housing. This GR No. TPB/4307/CR-334/2007/UD-11 is a next step in realizing this goal. This GR outlines the proposed modification to DCR for all municipal councils. Sustainability Initiatives has studied the Development Control Rules related to this GR and has proposed some suggestions and objections to the rules.
