Govt aims to build one million houses each year

The federal government has been giving incentives to private banks to finance the Naya Pakistan Housing Scheme, under which PM Imran Khan has promised cheap houses for the poor.

The financing is expected to start from next week, it was

revealed by Lt Gen (retd) Anwar Ali Hyder, the chairperson of the Naya Pakistan

Housing & Development Authority, in a seminar on ‘Opportunities of Naya

Pakistan Housing Scheme’ on Friday.

The seminar, held at the Association of Builders and Developers (ABAD) office in Gulistan-e-Jauhar, was chaired by ABAD Chairman Mohsin Sheikhani.

Shabbar Zaidi, the former chairperson of the Federal Board of Revenue, said that proper financing is imperative for the execution of mass housing projects. The government should provide subsidy to the general public on a 4% interest rate—which is affordable to the middle and lower-middle classes.

Middle and lower-middle classes buyers do not have the finances to buy the asset and government subsidy enables them to get their own asset. The government should provide free of cost land for the execution of low-cost housing schemes, Zaidi said, adding the government has plenty of vacant land in Karachi.

The authority chairperson, who attended the seminar via

video link, said that the government has two main targets: providing mass and

affordable housing to the general public and incentivising the construction

industry.

He said that a one window digital portal will soon be introduced for the housing scheme for all types of building approvals. The authority will deal with all federal and provincial type approvals required for the project.

Incentive packages are to be provided to the builders and developers who will provide their lands for the low-cost housing scheme.

The government plans to construct one million houses per

year, said Zaigham Rizvi, the chairperson of the Naya Pakistan Housing Task

Force. He remarked that the Evacuee Trust and Pakistan Railways have more than

3,00,000 acres of land in the country.

He said the builder and developer can get financing for

their projects by submitting NOCs, completion plans that don’t violate SBCA

laws.
