Why PMAY Failed in Maharashtra?

There has, since the appointment of Narendra Modi as the Prime Minister, been the popping of a large number of varied and innovative schemes to make India a better place. A lot of schemes took off really well, but the momentum slowed down after all the hustle and bustle died down. The Swachh Bharath Abhiyaan is a tremendous success and is considered a feather in the cap of the present government rule.

There is another scheme that was launched by the Modi famously known as the “Housing for All” scheme. This scheme, evidently, aims at putting a roof over every person’s head. There was a lot of hype which was generated around this extremely ambitious project. But to everyone’s dismay, the project didn’t take off in Maharashtra, where the hype around this project was at its peak.

Reasons for its Failure in Maharashtra

There are various reasons why the “Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna” failed to even take off in the state of Maharashtra. The value and availability of properties in Maharashtra were pointed out to be crucial issues. In the other states, over 80000 houses were built as a part of the PMAY scheme. The main plot of the scheme benefits the urban and the rural poor, with the government providing them monetary assistance up to 1 lakh rupees.

Three main reasons presented themselves as deal-breakers for this scheme in Maharashtra, which are discussed briefly below.

  • Shortage of Land- This was the main cause of the failure of this more than ambitious scheme. There is not enough land in Mumbai to house the people who have the money to buy a house for them. The overly populated city areas do not call for more houses to be built. Even though there is enough land in the outskirts of the city, connectivity poses a serious challenge. Properties in Mumbai, which don’t provide good connectivity, lose their retail value and cause unnecessary expense to the government.
  • Delayed Approvals- The metropolitan authority in the city of Mumbai, rather, the development authorities in the state of Maharashtra are pretty well known for their late approvals of development sites. The approvals itself for this scheme are estimated to take a minimum if 2-3 years, which is precious time deemed not to be wasted. Even a prominent real estate developer faces problems with the approval of projects.
  • Delayed MMRDA Plans- the plan for regional development is still waiting for its approval from the state government. An expert, who is also a prominent real estate developer says that finding areas which can act as a hub for improved social life will be tough, as all the areas are either overpopulated or not well connected and far away from the city.

Conclusion

The above reasons for the failure of the ambitious scheme could be reverted if the approvals are given on time, the slums are rehabilitated and the encroachments are removed.

65% of Buyers Looking Affordable Homes in Mumbai, Bangalore & Pune

India is a country of middle class people in the cities. Mostly, they belong to lower middle class of society. Every common person in India seeks an affordable housing instead of luxurious housing. Even if the luxurious housing is sought after, their percentage is very low. In India people do not wish or dream for very big. Especially, the metropolitan cities of Mumbai, Bangalore & Pune are perfect examples of such housing. The housing in these cities is very costly and mostly people try to rent/ buy affordable homes in Mumbai, Bangalore and other cities.

The 21st Century Workforce and Housing

In the wake of 21st century, the world here is stepping towards a more competitive realm. In search of work the trained and skilled workforce comes to these metropolitan cities to earn a living and support their families. The people have to live away from their friends and family to make a living. This makes them to settle in their places of work. Now to accommodate such a large workforce, there is a need for accommodation facilities to be provided to them. These buyers of flats or apartments do not demand very high. In the cities like Mumbai, Bangalore & Pune approximately 65 % of people inquire about the details of 1-BHK flats. The trends of 1 bhk flat for sale in Pune almost have been same as that of Bangalore and Mumbai for inquiring about the affordable housing in these three megacities.

 

The flats for sale in Pune are inquired by buyers or forced investors in the city for affordable housing. The sky high buildings of Mumbai, Pune & Bangalore seem to be going out of reach of middle class people. More than 50 % of calls of inquiries are for affordable 1 bhk in Mumbai, Pune & Bangalore on an average. The suburbs of Mumbai see a minimum of 75% of calls inquiring about 1-BHK housing. The other cities in India provide larger spaces to their people for more affordable housing of 2-BHK and 3-BHK flats. These cities include Ahmedabad, Chennai, Noida and Kolkata.

The flats in Pune have other trends to be observed. The inquiries of flat pricing of affordable 1-BHK or 2-BHK flats have been 53 % in the city noted by a private surveying agency. The new age buyers do not inquire for settlements in Mumbai but in peripheries such as Dombivali, Thane, Thane West and Navi Mumbai. This costs less and also comes under their budgets. A larger proportion of such people is salaried class and prefers to have affordable housing.

Conclusion

So according to the reports, the employment, manufacturing and information technology are driving forces of forced investments in real estate by middle class family people who in search of work and employment have to settle down in these cities and ultimately they have to go for affordable housing instead of a spacious housing back home in cities they have come from.
