Affordable Rental Housing Complexes Scheme Details
Government has launched ARHC Scheme under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana to ensure ease of living at affordable rent by the following measures.
- Converting government funded housing in the cities (JNNURM / RAY) into Affordable Rental Housing Complexes (ARHC) under PPP mode through concessionaire.
- Incentivizing manufacturing units, industries, institutions, associations to develop Affordable Rental Housing Complex (ARHC) on their private land and operate.
- Incentivizing State Government Agencies / Central Government Organizations on the similar lines to develop Affordable Rental Housing Complexes (ARHC) and operate.
ARHC Scheme Implementation
The ARHC scheme will have a 2 pronged approach for the effective implementation. First is the existing vacant government funded housing complexes will be converted into ARHCs through a concession agreement for 25 years. As per the official data, there are 1.2 lakh such govt. houses available under Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM), PMAY and other state govt’s housing schemes. Out of these, Maharashtra has 35,000 accommodations while Delhi has 30,000 accommodations.
Concessionaire will make the complexes livable by repair/retrofit and maintenance of rooms. Moreover, govt. will fill up infrastructure gaps like water, sewer/ septage, sanitation, roads among others. States/UTs will select concessionaire through transparent bidding. Complexes will revert to Urban Local Bodies after 25 years to restart the next cycle earlier or to run on their own.
Secondly, special incentives like use permission, 50% additional Floor Area Ratio or Floor Space Index, concessional loan at priority sector lending rates, tax reliefs at par with affordable housing among others will be offered to private and public entities to develop ARHCs on their own available vacant land for 25 years. ARHCs will create a new ecosystem in urban areas making housing available at affordable rent close to places of work and will cut down unnecessary travel, congestion and pollution.
