Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced Friday that Indore, Rajkot, Chennai, Ranchi, Agartala and Lucknow under the GHTC-India initiative have laid the foundation for six lighthouse projects via video conference.

Each year, about 1000 homes will be built at each location using 6 different technologies from 54 skill baskets included in the 2019 GHTC India List.

Addressing the Prime Minister, Governor and other relevant officials, the Prime Minister said the country has adopted new technologies to provide sustainable, affordable and comfortable homes for the poor and middle class. The state collaboration on the project somehow strengthened cooperative federalism.

He said that the GHTC provides a space for incubating new building technologies and innovations, and asked designers, architects and students from various universities and institutes to visit the site, learn the skills and design them for use according to local needs.

Indore used precast sandwich panel technology, and Rajkot used the French monolithic concrete construction system to build the tunnel. Chennai is using precast technology from the US and Finland to build affordable homes, and the Ranchi project is being implemented using 3D technology from Germany.

Modi said the middle class now benefits from lower mortgage rates. It is protected by the new Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act (REA). About 60,000 projects were registered, many complaints were considered in accordance with the law.

The award is an annual excellence award in six categories for the performance of the Pradhan Mantri Avas Yojana-Urban (PMAY-Urban). A total of 88 beneficiaries were received from all over the country. Also on display was a collection of 54 innovative home technologies identified by GHTC-India.

Housing and Urban Development Minister Hardeep Singh Puri said 1.09 million homes were approved at the request of 1.12 million households under the city's PMAY program, 40 lacquered homes were donated to beneficiaries and 70 lacquered homes were under construction.

The event launched five incubators as part of the Affordable Sustainable Housing Incubator, an Indian initiative to identify innovative materials, processes and technologies to improve resource efficiency, disaster resilience and sustainable development. The accreditation process for innovative building technologies "Navaritih" was also introduced.
