In this regard, BMTPC during recent past, has initiated number of Demonstration Housing Projects in various parts of the country under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Urban) – Housing for All Mission. The efforts of the Council have helped in building up confidence and acceptability of proven and emerging technologies to public & private construction agencies, professionals etc. These Demonstration Housing Projects have helped in spreading awareness about new technologies and disseminate technical know-how in the States.
