It was quite shocking to note that most of the Indian homes both in the rural and the urban areas are smaller than the minimum square foot provided in the prison cells. A recent survey revealed that about 80% of the poorest rural area have floor area equal to or smaller than 449 square feet and about 60% of the poorest urban area have floor area equal to or smaller than 380 square feet.
Why is this disparity? What is the government going to about this? Would the Housing for all scheme 2022, improve the standard of homes and living in such areas?
