According to a KPMGNational Real Estate Development Council report, to realise the government’s vision of ‘housing for all by 2022’, an investment to the tune of ₹ 16 trillion per annum is required. In this backdrop, NARDECO will be organising its 12th national convention on September 12 and 13 at The Ashok, Chanakyapuri, in Delhi.
The convention, supported by the ministry of housing and urban poverty alleviation and the ministry of urban development, aims to prepare a roadmap of reforms to ensure that the national mission of ‘housing for all’ is realised by 2022.
A number of interesting sessions will be conducted on both days, some of which include opportunities and challenges in providing housing for all by 2022, key initiatives to promote affordable housing in India, emerging opportunities in the Indian real estate sector, etc.
Other sessions will cover topics such as technological innovation and skill development, legal perspectives on issues and chal- lenges in the housing segment, challenges in developing smart cities, key legal bottlenecks in the housing segment and ways to address them, issues related to organised land supply and its challenges, streamlining approvals, to name a few.
Registration for the convention starts at 9am on September 12, and the sessions will be held between 12 noon and 5pm with Venkaiah Naidu, minister of urban development and housing and urban poverty alleviation, likely to address the inaugural session. The first NARDECO real estate awards will also be presented (in association with knowledge partner KPMG) in the evening of September 12.
