Much better than the slums! Indians are very smart and India needs to catch up!
This is an example of what we call co-operative housing societies. People of similar age group, friends, similar income levels get together and form a society. They request for land in areas alloted for co-op development. If land allotment is approved, they pool their funds/loans, hire architects, contractors to get the buildings done. The cost is lower than buying an apartment from private developers. There is nothing fancy about these developments. There is also a lot of development by DDA mostly targeted to meet affordable accomomodation. [For fancier stuff, private developers are the way to go.]raymond_tung88 said:Hmm... are these new suburbs? IMO, India's definately trying to modernize, but no where does this come close to looking as nice as what China's doing.
These are low to middle income housing, not the most glitzy developments. China has plenty of these types of construction too. :|raymond_tung88 said:Hmm... are these new suburbs? IMO, India's definately trying to modernize, but no where does this come close to looking as nice as what China's doing.
