Abstract

Affordable housing is perhaps the sought after topic in India that is discussed in both professional and policy circles in the current times. After an initial vagueness about what constitutes affordable housing, the later efforts to define it on built space and price parameters led to a better focus on the means of achieving affordable housing. Different agencies/organisations/government bodies have adopted different approaches/models for achieving affordable housing in India. This paper focuses on four broad models of affordable housing development in India-(i) area-based models (ii) agency models (iii) partnership models (iv) enterprise models. The salient features of these models are explained through specific case projects under each category. Finally, these models are compared on a matrix so as to help the various players of housing development in the adoption of such/ similar models in other areas. The replication potential of these models in other settings/contexts is also discussed through feature mapping done in the matrix.
