Appropriate Housing Options for Rural Jharkhand, Chhatisgarh and West Bengal

With UNDP collaboration, People in Centre along with Hunnarshala and BuildAur supported Ministry of Rural Development and respective State Governments in developing appropriate technical options for social housing under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY). The technical options were based on a study of vernacular construction practices, locally available materials and skills and peoples’ aspirations. As part of this engagement, housing zonation for each state was identified and appropriate options were developed through participatory and consultative process. State level workshops were also organized to share these housing options with the government. The state wise reports are available on request.
