In reality, a house is much more than a physical building. It is a home—a place that shelters, protects, and nurtures those who live in it. It supports one’s personal and professional development and offers a safe harbour in day to day life. Affordability in housing is not a gift. It is a necessity in today’s world. Affordable housing provides all basic amenities and facilities with quality, lasting construction but at a price point affordable to aspiring customers. Affordable housing thus cuts across other income segments of the society and makes good economic sense.
