Building materials, housing technologies and infrastructure are few important segments of construction industries needs immediate attention to address growing demand of infrastructure and housing of the Country. In last few years there has been tremendous growth towards infrastructure development through expansion of road network which have been always an added advantages for addressing the needs of housing and upcoming smart cities scheme of Indian Government at national and state levels. In the last few decades Government of India has launched many social mass housing schemes with different names and parameters involving technical and financial support of various institutions. Many of these efforts are focused towards fulfilling government initiatives to provide housing for all by 2022.
A recent report released by real estate global consultants Cushman & Wakefield reveals that the urban housing demand in India is set to grow nearly 15 million units by the end of 2019.India's population boom resulted in an increase in urbanization rate from 27.8 percent to 31.2 percent. Looming housing shortage has been on a rise and has resulted in increase in slums and squatter settlements. A huge gap exists between demand and supply, both quantitatively and qualitatively. Lack of infrastructure and bloated cost of land were few reasons that halted affordable housing in the country.
The report cites that top eight cities — Ahmadabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Pune, Kolkata and NCR — will contribute nearly 3.4 million units. The key driver for this demand will be the middle income group (MIG), the report adds. After MIG, it will be LIG that will contribute 1.3 million units in the top eight cities. This huge gap between demand and supply of individual homes and mass housing is an opportunity for many companies trying to establish themselves by providing various kinds of housing solutions. Many of these companies have already opened there franchises and offices in important metro cities in India and expanding their businesses in other state capitals through networking.
Samrat Ashok Technological Institute (SATI), Vidisha having vast background and experience in the area of housing and construction technologies has decided to take lead for sharing these developments in construction industry with various stake holder at state and national level. For this an International Seminars and Exhibitions on Innovations and Opportunities in Building Materials and Housing Technologies is being organized by SATI during 1-3 November 2018 at Vidisha, Madhya Pradesh, India. This International Seminar and Exhibition has been planned especially to celebrate foundation day of the SATI Vidisha established on 1st November 1960 and also dedicated to expand a few of the objectives of the college objectives through offering knowledge & networking opportunities to various stake holders by sharing enormous opportunities available in this sector.
