In this back ground, with the objective of “every person having no house of
his or her own must own an affordable house” the Government of Andhra Pradesh embarked upon a
unique and ‘affordable housing’ scheme called “Rajiv Swagruha” for moderate income groups in
the urban area of the State in the year 2007. The project is demand driven and self financed.
It provides an ‘enabling environment’ for fulfilling the shortage of appropriate housing to the needy.
The scheme is a boon for the middle class duly providing them protection from various frauds / cheating
and also the runaway real estate prices.
