Budget Flats in Serampore Hooghly

Low Cost Housing Project is Not Easy to Find [Break the Myth]

Author: New Kolkata Team | 2019-05-31

One of the most important signs of development is housing. The quality of homes plays a role in indicating the quality of life observed by the population. However, this progress should not only be limited to the high-income segment – which is just a chunk of the total population. Low-cost housing needs to be given importance above all, which is where true development starts happening.

There are several core reasons that dissuade developers to undertake these types of projects. Private developers, rather, the big brands in real estate, are hesitant when it comes to developing low budget flats in Kolkata. While the demand is high, there are a number of reasons why these projects are not as popular as they should be. Here are a few of the following:

●    Lack of availability of land area
●    Rising costs of construction
●    Unreasonable prices for land
●    Low purchasing power of the target population
●    High fees and charges incurred
●    Unfavourable policies and development norms, etc.

These restrict affordable housing and its presence in the real estate industry. While there are efforts to encourage this type of housing, such as tax benefits, one cannot be assured of the quality of the home they purchase. Thus, finding the perfect low budget flats in Kolkata can be time-consuming and not as easy to find as you perceived.

In fact, many projects are also abandoned halfway. When the construction time is extended, the input prices rise significantly and put a strain on developers. Financial aid being the most prevalent, low-cost housing is an area that builders are apprehensive of. At the same time, regulatory issues, finding and support, as well as approval from authorities tend to produce unproductive delays.

Moreover, there is a misconception that low budget apartments are placed in far-fetched regions away from their developed counterparts. Developers choose distant locations where land prices are cheaper (but economic and infrastructural development is significantly backward).

However, widespread development is happening at large, with the extension of metro lines, creation of new flyovers, etc. In fact, there is a low-cost housing project that even uses the river as its medium of transport for residents.
