Housing Shortage In Bombay

According to Mr. D. K. Kunte, Chairman of the Maharashtra Housing Board, over 300,000 tenements are needed for housing over 1,300,000 persons now without shelter in Bombay city. In a city where land prices were fabulous, water shortage acute, and traffic bottlenecks frequent, the only solution lay in abandoning the “island-mindedness’’, said Mr. Kunte.

Federations Of Housing Cooperitives

The Working Group on Housing Co-operatives favours the setting up of federations of cooperative societies in all States, to provide guidance and give technical assistance to member societies. The federation can also handle bulk-buying of building material. The Working Group, which met in New Delhi recently, said that most of the States had suggested that an apex society be set up at the State level: “The States are of the view that this will ensure that provisions made for housing cooperatives are used effectively”. The Working Group feels that 20 to 25 per cent of the allocations made for housing should be set apart by State Governments for cooperatives. Also, they should prepare plans for building houses in the cooperative sector. The Group recommends that in Villages, panchayats should be closely associated with the housing programmes. In every State there is need to acquire land for Housing Cooperatives.

Company Town's Housing

There are 13,875 quarters and bungalows in Jamsehdpur town, belonging to the TISCO (Tata Iron & Steel Company), and 7,734 holdings leased out for private construction of buildings of which 3,935 were given to the employees for residential purposes. In addition 618 quarters are now being constructed at Baridih and about 75 flats for supervisory staff are under contemplation. About 1,682 quarters have also been taken from the Bihar Government at Adityapur and Aaghbera for employees. Despite all this there is still a scarcity of accommodation in the steel city.
