Prime Minister Imran Khan launched the flagship affordable housing project on 10th October, 2018 titled “Naya Pakistan Housing Programme”, where the government plans to construct 5 million affordable houses over the next five years for the underprivileged. The project aims to alleviate the country’s housing shortfall of close to 10 million houses, with 0.7 million houses added to this demand each year.
Apart from providing affordable houses to the underprivileged, the project is expected to create millions of jobs and benefit almost 40 industries that are directly involved in real estate. It is expected to provide as many as 6 million jobs and create demand in real estate related industries. In addition, it is expected to attract a significant amount of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI).
After the Prime Minister launched the project, National Database Registration Authority (NADRA) issued the registration form for Naya Pakistan Housing Programme. Initially, a pilot project has been initiated in seven districts around Pakistan: Sukkur, Quetta, Gilgit, Muzaffarabad, Swat, Islamabad, and Faisalabad.
The primary purpose of the form is to collect data which will form the basis of housing specifications, including designs, prices, and sites for the applicants.
