Something Indian Entrepreneurs Truly Need To Work On- Affordable Prefab Homes

It's funny how we do not explore the content on the internet. There are so many things we know about on the internet- sites like Wikipedia, social media sites like Twitter, and so on. What about widening your horizon- that's what the internet is all about, right? Why not use the internet to know about things we can use to improve the environment, our surroundings? 

We know how terribly Global Warming is affecting the Globe. Here's a solution to curb global warming as much as possible in the most minimal and useful way- to build prefabricated homes

Several countries already have the development of prefab homes. However, why not have prefab homes in India? That's when I googled about builders who work on prefab houses in India. These homes are simple and most useful for humans. It's not only the in- thing, it's beauty is truly attractive and most importantly, inexpensive!

Several countries like Middle Atlantic, and so on have gone forward with this concept. Several small and big manufacturing companies are available out there with a wide varieties of panels for house constructions. 

Some efforts in the line of building prefabricated houses are well seen in India here and there. However, they are not too popular. 

On looking at the overall housing construction in India, so far, it's only most been in a conventional way. Burnt bricks, glass, aluminum, cement mortar and so on are the most popular materials used which are not just time-consuming and expensive, they are also extremely harmful to the environment.

Very rare present designs of homes in India are eco- friendly which is very sad. If not in the eco- friendly manner, look at it this way- it takes at leas a year's time to complete the construction of a 900 sq-ft carpet area property. The cost- as high as 2 million (in Rupees.) On the other hand, a prefabricated home with take nothing more than 3 months to it's maximum to be set up and be ready for the client to move into. 

In spite of India being 2nd most populous country in the World, more than half of the population- over 120 billion humans live without proper shelter. They're considered to be in the category of BPL(Below Poverty Line) whose average income is nothing more than Rs. 5000 each month. It's an unimaginable situation, available in reality, where houses at 1/10th of the amount mentioned above is the amount required for a prefabricated house!

Due to an up rise in the secondary and tertiary sectors, there has been a severe downfall in the availability of skilled labor in the field of housing construction. It's now become very difficult to find plumbers, carpenters and so on. How can the conventional style of building homes still go on?

It's just sad how the Indian government is least concerned about it. The government is too short of visionary leaders who can foresee problems like this beforehand. 

Yes, organizations such as Central Building Research Institute (CBRI) and many state government sponsored housing boards are out there working on this issue. However, none of them other than a few companies like Champion Prefabs have truly worked on this problem and taken it in their hands. Not many have been able to popularize the aesthetic and practical housing designs which are comfortable and affordable for all. 

Rapid growth of conventional constructions has led to serious depletion of the river sand in several regions in India like Kerala. The river sand here has become very scarce. 

Factory sand has become available which is nothing but crushed rock- used as an alternative. The availability of river sand has depleted to a level that the prices have risen from a few hundred rupees to Rs. 10,000/ cubic meter.

Ever lived in concrete buildings? They are so harmful on a thermal level- an increase in the usage of air conditioner and electricity has been happening for quite some time now. People who can afford it- fine, go ahead and kill the environment. What about the poor- the ones who cannot afford 24*7 air conditioning supply? 

All these call for immediate actions to spread the word about Prefab homes and designs in India for both rural and urban people. 

Change is constant- visionary entrepreneurs need to take this in their hands make dynamic changes. It's an area where people like you, entrepreneurs can think different and lead to evolution of business models which are beneficial to society and the planet, as a whole.

You might wonder that it's technically difficult. Here's the thing- Know how's and technologies already exist everywhere.
What is truly needed are willing entrepreneurs who can take up the initiative and change the world. 

The opportunities and possibilities are immense!
