Having a house over your head is a necessity for endurance. Unfortunately, not everybody (is a little more polite) stays in homes selling according to the market price. A huge chunk of the Indian population earns income below average which makes it difficult for them to afford a home. Having a home is the right of any individual. Being homeless or staying under inconvenient conditions is not only inevitable for most people but also a long-reaching consequence for society.
For unraveling the issue of homelessness and encourage the importance of shelter, the government of India has come up with various affordable housing schemes for the betterment of the population of India. A certain choice of a location situated in the heart of our nation also consists of various affordable housing schemes provided by renowned real-estate developers for instance – MRG World, Raheja, Mahira Homes, Signature Global, etc. in the city of NCR & Gurugram. So we’ve listed down a few schemes of affordable homes in Gurgaon & NCR.
1. Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna (PMAY):
Launched in the year 2015, Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna (PMAY) is an initiative introduced by the Government of India that aims at providing affordable housing for people whose household income lies below average. The scheme promises to complete the construction of about 2 Cr. affordable homes by the year 2022. PMAY has collaborated with various real-estate developers in NCR-Gurugram for availing low-cost homes to the urban population of the city.

3. Delhi Development Authority Housing Scheme (DDA):
This scheme was introduced in the year 2018.
