Government to offer incentives for ARHCs development: Housing Minister – ET RealEstate

MUMBAI: The government is extending several incentives including free Floor Space Index (FSI), concessional project finance and free of cost trunk infrastructure facilities to push participation in the Affordable Rental Housing Complexes (ARHCs) scheme for urban poor and migrants, said Hardeep Singh Puri, Minister of State, Housing and Urban Affairs.

A total of 24 states and union territories have already signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoA) with the central government to implement this scheme in their respective regions.

β€œAm 100% confident that other states will also come on board soon as they are also facing a similar issue of affordable rental housing shortage for migrants and urban poor. I will personally write to chief ministers of states that are yet to sign the agreement,” Puri said while launching a dedicated portal for ARHCs scheme. β€œWe are witnessing good interest among private entities too for the scheme.”

Three private entities have already offered their commitment to build a total of around 2,800 such houses in Jaipur, Baroda, Bahadurgarh and Bengaluru.

He also released the model Request for Proposal (RFP) for selection of Concessionaire by states and union territories under model I, and Draft Expression of Interest (EOI) for short-listing of entities under inviting the expression of interests for the scheme under model II.

These complexes will be implemented by utilizing existing government funded vacant houses to convert into ARHCs under the first model, while under the second model construction, operation and maintenance will be by public or private entities on their own available vacant land.

In July, the Union cabinet approved the Affordable Rental Housing Complexes (ARHCs) scheme under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana – Urban (PMAY- U) to provide budget rental accommodation to poor and migrant workers in urban areas. This is estimated to benefit more than 350,000 people.

As per this sub-scheme under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna (PMAY), existing vacant government-funded housing complexes across key cities will be converted into ARHCs, and offered to concessionaires for 25 years to rent out the units to urban poor and migrant workers. State and civic bodies will select concessionaires through bidding, according to guidelines issued by the housing and urban development ministry.
