Majlis deadline for social housing plan

Financial Tribune- Lawmakers have passed a clause regarding Social Housing Plan, stressing that it will be launched in 2017.

In the latest open session of Majlis, lawmakers approved a clause of the sixth five-year development plan (2016-21), which concerns preventing social harm and providing welfare, namely in the form of housing for low-income families, reports ICANA, the official news website of the Iranian Parliament.

They demanded that the plan be implemented as per the deadline—by the end of the first year of the five-year plan—which will be March 2017.

Social Housing Plan is a subcategory of the government’s Comprehensive Housing Plan that incorporates programs to provide low-income groups and those covered by state charities like the Imam Khomeini Relief Committee and State Welfare Organization of Iran with affordable housing.
