Briefing the meeting details, Narayana said that the sub-committee mooted a proposal to construct satellite cities near industrial areas, where complete social infrastructure like hospitals, educational institutions, shopping malls and other facilities can be created in the government lands.

Referring to housing programme for economically poor, he said the sub-committee has decided to utilise Shear Wall technology in the construction of urban houses for the poor. “The government will construct 1.93 lakh houses for the weaker sections out of which 1.20 lakh will be in multi-storeyed buildings,” he said.

The minister added that remaining 73,000 houses would be constructed in the open plots owned by the beneficiaries for which Rs 2.5 lakh financial assistance would be provided by the government. Taking about Shear Wall technology, Narayana said, it would help in construction of high standard houses within a short period.

“After laying the foundation for the building it would take only ten days for constructing each floor. All 20 lakh houses will be completed within a year. With this technology the construction cost per sft will be about Rs 1485,” he informed.Ministers K Atchannaidu, Pithani Satyanarayana were also present.
