Basava Housing Scheme 2021: Latest update

Update on June 21

It seems the affordable housing programme in Karnataka is a long way from completion. The major reason for this, is the lack of proper land documentation by the state government. While the land has been identified, the land documents such as title and title deed are not available for several instances. Also, the process is being delayed by slow application submission. According to government data, of the 1.6 lakh applicants, only 15,758 applications have been submitted to the banks for housing loans, due to lack of documentation.


The Karnataka state government is planning to construct around 1.69 lakh houses under various housing schemes including the Basava Housing Scheme 2021. Around 69,000 houses will be constructed in Mysuru, Chikkamagalur and Raichur districts while another 1.2 lakh homes will be constructed across the state by the Rajiv Gandhi Housing Corporation at the expense of Rs 10,000 crores.
