In a bid to further boost the housing sector, the government has urged all public agencies such as housing boards, railways, defence and public sector undertakings (PSUs) to adopt new technologies for housing projects, minister of housing and urban affairs Hardeep Singh Puri said. Inaugurating the National Seminar on Emerging Building Materials and Construction Technologies, organised by the Building Materials and Technology Promotion Council, on Thursday, Puri said BMTPC is promoting new and emerging technologies which suit Indian conditions.

Puri said considering the present housing shortage in urban areas, more than 1.2 crore houses with necessary infrastructure are required to be constructed. To achieve this, appropriate actions are required on all fronts. This necessarily includes among other measures identification and selection of appropriate building materials and technologies to bring not only the economy but also quality, durability and speed with due care for safety and environment concerns, he said.
