  • A total of 88,236 existing Government funded vacant houses are available to be converted into ARHCs for rental accommodation to migrants under Model-1 of ARHC Scheme. However, no vacant houses are available in Telangana for rental accommodation to migrants under Model-1.
  • Initial affordable rent of ARHCs will be fixed by the local authority based on a local survey prior to the issuance of Request for Proposal (RFP) by Urban Local Bodies (ULBs).
  • Subsequently, rent will be enhanced biennially by 8%, subject to maximum increase of 20% in aggregate, over a period of 5 years, effective from the date of signing the contract. The same mechanism shall be followed over the entire concession period i.e. 25 years.
