Will Everyone get a house under PM Modi’s Housing to all by 2022?

Prime Minister Narender Modi, in 2015, launched a new housing scheme under Prime Minister’s Awaas Yojna with the aim of providing Housing for all by 2022. Under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana- Housing for All (Urban) alone keeping in mind the slum decadal growth rate of 34%, the slum households were projected to go up to 18 million. 2 million non-slum urban poor households are proposed to be covered under the Mission.
