Feb2018_Posiview Note: SRA For Affordable Housing

  1. 1. Suggestions to MHUPA National Policy for Affordable Housing through Slum Rehabilitation Schemes CA Vinit Vyankatesh Deo
  2. 2. Ideas to Kickstart the economy through MSMEs Dear Readers, The pandemic of Covid 19 which is also now know (in)famously as Corona, will lead to a major remake of the World Economy. Unlike the other crises of this century viz the Dot Com bust of 2001 and the Lehman crisis of 2008, this crisis will not just affect the financial world but will shake the foundations of economies of all the countries - right from Villages and Cities to State and the Nation. Governments at all levels will need to take drastic measures to first stabilise the economy and then to plan for its growth. MSMEs are like the veins of the economy. They are essential to keep the supply of money flowing between the vital organs viz. Large corporates, MNCs, Banks, Government etc. This brief Concept Note presents 5 ideas that can help revive and grow the MSME sector. We urge the Central and State Governments to take swift and drastic steps to revive the MSME Sector so that it can become a solid foundation for building the revival of Indian economy in the post-Corona world.

  3. 3. Background ▪ Effective schemes for Slum Rehabilitation (SRA) can be one of the most viable and speedy methods of creating Affordable Housing in the Country ▪ Slums are usually based in the City and Suburbs. SRA Schemes can solve the problem of both housing and employment opportunities within the City area. ▪ Many slums are on private lands so Government will not need to fund these projects.
  4. 4. Issues ▪ SRA projects have a long gestation period as the Developer has to deal with large number of stakeholders right from the slum dwellers to Local and State Authorities, Environment Clearance etc. ▪ Huge upfront investment by the Developer as Banks/ Financial Institutions do not fund SRAs pre-approval ▪ Restrictions on mortgage of SRA land making it difficult for Developers to raise capital ▪ Sale of TDR generated from SRA not treated for deduction under Income Tax Act as Income from Affordable Housing project. Developers sometimes do not get free sale area and only income is from TDR.
  5. 5. Policy Solutions ▪ Central Government Policy for Slum Rehabilitation. Central Govt. incentives like PMAY for SRA projects should be linked to adoption of Policy. ▪ Slum Rehabilitation Authority to be not just the single-window but the SOLE Authority for all issues related to slums such as: – Special Development Plans and DC Rules for slums – Environment Clearance – All NOC required from National, State & Local Authorities ▪ Dedicated financing / refinancing Developers who undertake SRA projects through Institutions such as HUDCO and NHB
  6. 6. Benefits of a National Policy for SRAs ▪ Government: Will be able to get double benefit of affordable housing for slum-dwellers at no extra cost AND affordable housing units in Free Sale area available to Developers ▪ Slum-Dwellers: Since SRA projects will be in the city there will be cost and time saving on travel, finding job etc of the low income group people ▪ Home-Buyers: Will get affordable housing within the City area at cost within their Budget ▪ City: Will help in beautifying the City especially making it a Smart City.
