The ministry of housing and urban affairs has told the states that no new projects would be sanctioned under affordable housing in partnership (AHP) till old projects get off the ground and show progress.
Over five years after the launch of the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Urban), the housing for all flagship mission, the affordable housing programme has seen poor achievement of targets.
According to ministry statistics provided to ET, 23,31,229 houses have been sanctioned. Of this, 22% have been completed.
Even after completion, the states have been struggling to allot these to beneficiaries. Only 9% of the completed houses have been occupied.
