    Those with annual income exceeding Rs 12 lakh and up to Rs 18 lakh would get interest subsidy of three per cent.

    Reiterating the government's commitment to meet the 'Housing for All' target in urban areas by 2022, Mishra urged the private sector to invest in affordable housing as it is being promoted by the government in a "big way" with several incentives and concessions, the release said.

    Mishra later had hour-long discussions with a 30- member delegation of NAREDCO and assured them that the government would look into various issues raised by them in all sincerity and possible interventions would be considered, it added.
