The Looming Task Ahead:
10 Million Houses for the Homeless – Year 2019
20 Million Houses for Urban Poor – Year 2022
A vision to house every Indian by any yardstick is both an ideal and a mammoth task to achieve. But achieve it we must. The growing issue of homeless people in India is one that needs to be tackled on a war footing and any talk of India being a developed nation before giving its every citizen a safe shelter is but a sham.
We believe shelter is both a fundamental right and privilege that each Indian should have.
Such an ambition requires enormous political will and, the PMAY is a step in that direction. But the government can’t do it alone. This is the time when we need inspired and consistent collaboration between our nation builders, the engineering and architectural fraternity and the government to make the seeming impossible possible.
The competition "Building for a Billion" is but one such call for a seminal collaboration.
