Since 1979, the Andhra Pradesh State Housing Corporation Limited (APSHCL) has been the nodal agency that oversees the implementation of centrally-sponsored housing schemes in the state. The APSHCL also provides financial and technical assistance to developers, for building homes for the weaker sections of the society.
The body has received appreciation for its exemplary work, especially in the YSR Kadapa district, where 4.89 lakh homes were built. Other notable achievements have been the construction of 25 lakh homes over a five-year period, same day registration of properties and facilitating home loans to the poor at interest rates of 25 paise for loan amounts between Rs 2 lakhs to Rs 5 lakhs. For its notable work, the APSHCL has been included as the eighth ‘Navarathna’ in the Andhra Pradesh government’s manifesto.
At the helm of the APSHCL is the district collector/executive director who oversees 250 administrative and technical employees.
Upcoming housing and infrastructure projects by the APSHCL
The APSHCL has plans to construct 15 lakh houses in Phase-I, at a total project cost of Rs 27,000 crores and another tranche of 15 lakh homes in Phase-II, in 2021. These houses are in the YSR Jagannath Colonies.
The APSHCL aims to provide all beneficiaries who have received the site pattas, with suitable housing. For this, quality raw materials would be supplied to the beneficiaries at a cost less than the existing market price.
The APSHCL also monitors that beneficiaries are provided with adequate provisions, vis-à-vis road connectivity, water supply and electricity.
