Kerala vows to end homelessness with free flats

Kerala is offering free flats to homeless people, an ambitious model that activists say other states must follow as a nationwide “Housing for All” plan falls short.

The first 145 families moved into their newly constructed flats in a 270-unit complex in Adimali town in southern India this month, a state official said.

The state has surveyed its homeless population, and will build more than 400,000 homes for those who qualify, said U.V. Jose, chief executive of the LIFE Mission, a government agency overseeing the project.
