A country’s housing strategy has to evolve in response to the direction assumed by urbanisation. In India, approaching housing poverty and slum proliferation outside a holistic framework has caused the failures of various housing schemes that have been attempted over the last 70 years. The dominant strategy for dealing with housing poverty has been the construction of affordable houses or the facilitation of such construction by providing financial assistance. Such measures do little to address the phenomenon of slum proliferation. Moreover, the strategies being implemented are not compatible with the character of urban poverty faced by the country.
