Provide project loans to builders so that they can complete housing project in the shortest possible time thus improving their ROI and at the same time reduce the investment period thus reducing the overall cost for the end consumer the main objective of this scheme

Prime minister also promised that with the opening of this large project he will deliver 10 million jobs to the jobless people.

  2. The end consumers will have to pay only 20% of the unit price during the construction period but before they would have to obtain financing approval for 80% of the amount for loan from a commercial bank. This loan will be repaid by the homeowner over a period of twenty years. The objective is to bring the installment as close as possible to the rent they are currently paying.
  3. The NPHA would provide a one-window operation and construct houses in both rural and urban areas, he said and added, the Authority would coordinate with the local bodies and provincial governments.

To increase the financial resources of the banks the following sources of funds will be considered, pension funds, zakat funds, provident funds, funds at the disposal of insurance companies, EOBI, Social Security institutions etc.
