Private developers are constructing houses mainly for middle and high income group people. There is an acute shortage of houses for low income people.They look to the government to provide free house plots or houses. Most of the houses given to low income people by the government in rural areas are single storied houses. Large area of land is used for these houses. Land being scarce, government is slow in providing housing to this category of people. The government should seriously consider building multi-storied houses for low income people. Government should also consider giving subsidy to private constructors for building multi-storied buildings at affordable prices, so that the shortage of housing for low income people can be wiped out early.
