India is witnessing urbanization in an unprecedented scale and has been projected to grow at 2-2.5% CAGR between 2015 and 2021. If the urbanization will grow at the same trend, urban areas are going to comprise 40% of the Indian population (Source: Elite Wealth).

The growing population is a challenging task and to counter the situation, Central government has launched, “Pradhan Mantri Awas yojana-Housing for All (Urban)” where our honorable Prime Minister envisioned a pucca house for all Indian residents.Under PMAY Urban, 20 lakh houses have been approved for construction in 4720 cities (Source: Elite Wealth)
