Getting More People To Own Houses

  1. Parents and teachers should teach children to learn to save part of their money regularly, so that over a period of time, they will have enough money to acquire their own houses.
  2. People should make an investigation on how to take advantage of the different housing schemes which the government has set up.
  3. Government should establish more housing schemes and operate them in such a way that people can pay by installments over a period of time.
  4. Government and non-governmental organizations should assist rural dwellers to build simple houses.
  5. Government should advertise its various housing schemes, so that more people will know about them and take advantage of them.
  6. Banks and mortgage institutions, that have favorable housing schemes, should advertise their arrangements widely so that people can patronize them. The conditions must not be so harsh as to discourage people from getting loans from them.
  7. Government should plan cities, towns and villages properly and provide social amenities everywhere, so that people will find almost everywhere desirable to live in. This will make houses cheaper than they are now in the cities.
  8. Government should ensure that those who manufacture and sell building materials sell at affordable prices, so that more people can buy them. 9 Government should encourage the use of cheaper local building Material
