The real estate sector representatives flagged difficulties they face in launching projects in smaller cities because of the specifications under Prime Minister Awas Yojana scheme and wanted some relaxation on that front.

Union Minister M.Venkaiah Naidu had urged real estate developers last months to take up affordable housing projects in a big way while stressing that therein lies the future of the real estate sector.

Naidu had said that his ministry would soon convene a Round Table with real estate bodies and representatives of banks, housing financing companies and others concerned to deliberate on the road ahead for promoting affordable housing so that the target of ensuring Housing for All by 2022 would be met.
