Affordable Rental Housing
Draft recommended guidelines by civil society in response to GoI announcement
In response to the migrant worker crisis precipitated by the lockdown during Covid-19 in March 2020, the Government of India announced an affordable rental housing scheme under the ongoing national housing program of PMAY-urban. This scheme makes a small beginning to provide rental accommodation to migrant workers and other eligible groups. Within this context and based on the draft ARHC guidelines, CISHAA (Citizens for Shelter Alliance) and SAATH together produced a set of draft recommendations for policymakers.
