The Housing & Works Ministry is seeking authority for relaxation in the restrictions on developing residential and hostel facilities for federal employees. According to the details, the federal cabinet has imposed a ban on new housing facilities for federal employees since 1995.
The ban leads to a shortage of accommodations for employees. The ban was imposed to monetize federal employees housing facilities; however, the strategy was not effectively implemented.
The Ministry of Housing and Works has made recommendations to the Secretaries Committee that include:
- Renovation of current residencies for government employees
- Elimination of monetization policy on the construction of new hostels and residences for federal employees
- Establish Urban Regeneration, Human Settlement & Social Housing Board under the Housing and Works Ministry by bringing “The Right to Shelter Act, 2022” before legislatures.
- The relevant ministry has made it clear that the renewal costs will be borne through different strategies of commercialization.
