The time has come for the Haryana government to think seriously about inclusive growth with a perfect housing policy so as to bring in transparency in the system and to provide housing facility to the common man.
At the moment, there is no such policy and it costs the common man who can hardly afford a house in Gurgaon. This is mainly because the rich are getting more liberty as they can play with the government and administration, while the common man cannot afford even a small house.
This is wrong and the government must do something in this regard. Such things happen because builders, policy makers and authorities are in good coordination and they always influence policies.
But, now the government should stop ignoring this fact. The frustration of a common man is growing due to rising property prices. It is just a policy matter which can be handled with a single stroke of planning and then only we can achieve an inclusive growth. And then only the government will be in a position to check monopolies of the builders who have formed a nexus.
