AFFORDABLE RENTAL HOUSING PROGRAM
COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in reverse migration of urban migrants/ poor in the country. Urban migrants stay in slums/ informal settlements/ unauthorized colonies/ peri-urban areas to save cost on housing. They need decent rental housing at affordable rate at their work sites.

ARHCs will be a mix of single/double bedroom Dwelling Units and Dormitory of 4/6 beds including all common facilities which will be exclusively used for rental housing for a period of 10 to 25 years.
