If low income housing is not easy to implement, maybe it’s partly because you can’t find the land to build them on, within city limits. Methinks the low income guy prefers staying in a slum within the city rather than in a 2 room house 25 miles away.
Property prices in Blr are up because there is demand. That’s all fine, but at least some of that demand has to do with people who have too much disposable income or are earning well enough to afford the EMIs, and who look at housing primarily as an investment.
People who buy property as a speculative investment should be put in jail. There must be some kind of law that mandates that you stay in the house you buy/build. And if you don’t, there’s got to be a tax of some sort. If you own two houses, there’s got to be a tax of some sort too.
As an aside, one design innovation I would like to see is: toilet flushes with control settings, i.e. you should be able to control the quantity of water being flushed down the loo. Three settings should do: low, medium, high 🙂
