Hardeep S. Puri’s Urban Housing Focus – Smart but Confused

October04, 2017 (C) Ravinder Singh progressindia2015@gmail.com

Hardeep Singh Puri, speaks well but he is entrusted with most difficult department ‘Urban Affairs’ and he is least trained for this job. Cities and Towns in India have problems of Power, Water, Food Supply-Distribution, Transport, Education, Healthcare, Housing, Jobs, Industry, Law & Order, Traffic Jams, Business & Trade, Pollution, Sewage Treatment & Discharge and Garbage Generation & Disposal.Each town has its own Unique Character & dimension.


Worked for 10 years and trained in public works in 1976 – I understand fully all the Challenges, Obstructions, Investments, Skills & Financial Resources needed.

Though Urban Development is a state subject each state should come up with its own strategy and program – Central Government had needlessly Taken Over the state programs and then assigned ‘Single Programs for All States to Implement.’

A reputed Builder may need $2000b to build 20 million homes by 2030, another approach could provide 20m homes at $200b only by 2022 – yet another program could do it for $50b by 2019.


Like Gadkari, Prabhu & Goyal who ‘Plundered Public Resources in Unviable Projects’ – Hardeep S. Puri has embarked on giving yet another dimension & direction to the plunder.


Affordable homes in poorer regions can be built in days – made of locally available materials like Flyash Bricks for walls and Fiberglass Roof for Rs.1 lakh or $1500.


Rural Housing has big advantage – Land is practically free,Solar Power too could be free for 25-40 years, Water is Free– a tube-well could deliver say 800 Cubic Meter of water for over 1000 new homesBroadband now is almost free, Locally produced Fresh Foods & Milk & Meats cost a fifth – Waste is returned to Soils for minimum Micro Nutrient Loss, No Land Fill & Garbage Trucks required. No Long distance HT Power Lines required. Waste water releases of Mini Sewage Treatment plant used for irrigation.


India’s Farm GDP Could Exceed $2,000b


US Food GDP is $2000b – Iowa State in USA largely produce Crops for Animal Feed – Milk, Meats, Eggs etc and process most of the Farm Produce. 60% Processed Foods to be consumed in rural India itself – 60% Less Transportation & Packing of Foods.


Biggest advantage is Most Foods can be produced Locally When it is RIPE & Most Nutritious and Best Tasting. i.e. Freshly grounded Flour, Vegetable Oil, Milk Fresh from Cows, Eggs consumed within hours of laying.
