Lal said that since cost was a factor in providing affordable housing, the state government would contribute towards making the endeavour a success.

Addressing a conference organised by Confederation of Real Estate Developers Association of India (CREDAI) here today, Lal said coordinated efforts are needed to meet the goal of “housing for all” and it is not possible for a single agency or the government to achieve that.

The Haryana government would consider tying up with CREDAI to provide housing facility to people, he said while asking all big developers to make efforts to provide such facilities in rural areas based on the pattern for urban areas. He also urged the private sector to make affordable housing a part of their corporate social responsibility ( CSR) engagement.

That would be a move towards preventing migration from rural areas and would help strengthen the economy, he added.

Lal said that since cost was a factor in providing affordable housing, the state government would contribute towards making the endeavour a success.

Meanwhile, noting that there were a number of unauthorised colonies in Haryana, the Chief Minister said that a committee would be constituted to take further action on them.
