IIFL Home Finance has launched India’s first handbook for affordable green housing. The handbook provides home loan consumers, builders and the construction ecosystem with a definitive framework for building green homes. The handbook conceived by IIFL and renowned architect Ashok Lall. At the launch of the handbook recently, S.K. Hota, MD, National Housing Bank, said the need of the hour is to take green buildings to residential housing and more particularly to the ones in affordable housing segment. It is a myth that green housing is only for the premium segment and is not viable for the affordable housing segment. Ashok Lall said the book is a work in progress and this is making the right beginning towards sustainable affordable housing development in India. Monu Ratra, CEO, IIFL Home Finance, who has been a pioneer through his green housing in India, said this handbook is the company’s contribution towards sustainable affordable housing in India.
