Housing for the poor:

This hallmark initiative of the Telangana government is intended to provide quality and respectable housing to the poor. The housing for the poor plan provides for two and three storied buildings with the 2 BHK flats in Hyderabad and other urban areas while they are to be built as independent houses in rural areas.


The Telangana State Housing Corporation Ltd. is functioning separately from 2-6-2014, to fulfill the objective of the Government in providing pucca houses to all the eligible BPL houseless families.


The government of Telangana has formulated the double bedroom housing scheme in the month of October 2015 with a view to providing dignity to the poor by providing 100% subsidized housing. There is no beneficiary contribution under this scheme which is one of its kind. In rural areas, beneficiaries solely depend on seasonal conditions for their earnings, the 2BHK housing helped in protecting them from debt traps as was the case in the past.


Hitherto to the old yardstick was to provide a 260 Sft house with a single room; The “Double Bedroom Housing” provides two bedrooms, hall, kitchen, and two toilets covering 560 Sft plinth area. The plot area is 125 sq yards for an independent house in a rural area and worked out to 36 Sq yards of undivided land share in G++ pattern houses in urban areas. The land is thus provided free of cost apart from the cost of the dwelling unit.

This is perhaps the only State in the Country to launch such a liberal scheme for the poor. Under this scheme, the beneficiaries neither take a loan nor contribute which is a great boon for rural and urban poor families, for acquiring the dwelling unit. It is a paradigm shift from a credit and subsidy-based scheme to a “fully subsidized scheme” which creates a sound economic asset with a hygienic living environment for the beneficiary, thereby contributing enormously to the socio-economic growth of the individual and as well as the community.
