This paper focuses on housing provision in the context of Indian New Town policy (with special emphasis on new towns such as Rajarhat and Navi Mumbai) and the upsurge of the middle-income group (MIG) and its access to housing. It argues that alternative schemes for housing the growing middle income population should be promoted andâif planned inclusivelyânew towns can contribute to solving the housing crisis. New policies for housing the middle income groups (such as âPradhan Mantry Awas Yojnaâ) are unlikely to affect MIG housing, as in spite of the subsidies offered, the market price of housing stock continues to be beyond the reach of the MIG. Unless policy measures to boost the housing stock for MIG is formulated while controlling the pricing and incentivising the developers, it is unlikely that gaps in terms of demand would reduce substantially.
