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.
