INTRODUCTION OF INDUSTRY1.1 The Housing Finance and Development ScenarioPre-Independence ScenarioTaking up records of the bygone century, it is notable that the deficit-housing problem inIndia was not so aggravated till the first half of the century. Census records reveal thatin 1901, there were 55.8 million houses for 54 million households, which means thatthere were 1.8 million surplus houses. This surplus continued till 1941. But then a phasecame, where this surplus turned into a deficit to 1.7 million, in correspondence to 64.3million houses for 660 households. The maximum surplus period between 1911 to 1931was because, many urban centre during the period were affected by plague and faminewhich caused death on a large scale, resulting in households to grow slowly, leavingenough room for house construction to cope with the household growth.The Second World War (1939-1945) totally changed the situation. Labourers’ migrationwas seen to the towns to work in factories for producing ammunitions and other warsupplies. During this period, there was a scarcity of labour and materials for housingconstruction. After the War, many labourers continued to stay in urban centers andadding pressure on the housing situation. This became the initial turning point towardshousing requirements.The situation continued and aggravated in 1947. In the wake of the partition of thecountry about 7.5 million of displaced persons migrated into India and Pakistan. WithIndia achieving independence and taking a giant leap in terms of progression andindustrialization, improvement of health facilities and the death rate coming down andthe considerable growth in population and the influx of job seekers into urban India,mounted up pressure on the housing problem. By 1971, the ratio of total number of
  3. 3. households to the number of houses was 100.4/90.7 million, taking up the deficit to 9.7million.The Present ScenarioDespite considerable investment and efforts over successive Plan periods, the housingproblem continues to be daunting in terms of the large number of homeless households,rapid growth of slums and unauthorized colonies, spiraling prices and rents of land andhouses, rampant speculation, deficient availability of water, sanitation and basicservices top bulk of the population and the increasing struggle of the poor andvulnerable sections to secure affordable and adequate shelter. The housing shortagewas estimated by the National Buildings Organization in 1991 to be about 31 millionsunits, composed of 20.6 million in rural areas, and 10.4 million in urban areas, with; thebulk of the backlog consisting of “kuchcha” unserviceable units.By 1997 the total housing shortage came down in the country and was estimated to be13.66 million units, out of which 7.57 million units were in the urban areas. More than90% of this shortage was for the poor and the low-income category. The rapid growth ofurban population and its concentration in 300 cities with a population exceeding 0.1million started showing congestion and overcrowding in small houses, leading to steadygrowth of slums, informal settlements and severe pressure on the civic services. Thepopulation explosion and cross migration further led to the inadequate supply ofaffordable housing by public & private sector, the acute shortage of funds of thedevelopment of settlements and extension of city level infrastructure. This has beenaggravated by institutional deficiencies of housing agencies and local bodies, andinsufficient attention to the shelter needs of the poor.Future ProspectsIt is estimated that by 2012 and with the current rate of growth in population, Indiawould require at an average of 2.5 million to 3 million additional dwelling constructionsannually. Presently, only a meager 20 % of Indias new housing units are financedthrough formal housing finance institutions, although there is a remarkable prospective
  4. 4. to augment the figure of home credit. With Government’s timely intervention housingfinance on its own has become a major industry in India.
