Chief minister Vasundhara Raje has launched a new scheme of the Rajasthan housing board that will provide 20 percent cheaper homes to people from lower income groups (LIG) and economically weaker sections (EWS).

The new scheme is part of the 'Rajasthan Housing for All' project under which a need for 10 lakh houses has been estimated in the state by 2022.

Eighty-five per cent of these houses would be needed by the LIG and EWS category people. The government has, therefore, decided to build cheaper houses, which will come in four models.

As per the scheme, 10 percent of the land in government and private housing schemes would be reserved for building houses for LIG and EWS people.

In townships, the developers will have to reserve 7 percent land for LIG/EWS. In return, the government will give relaxation in floor-area-ratio (FAR) conditions to the private builders.

The Rajasthan housing board, however, will now reserve 50 percent land for LIG/EWS. The Jaipur Development Authority and UITs in cities will have to reserve 25 percent land for the purpose.
