Secondly, how can one disallow the owner of a house from residing in it. It is always difficult for a new employee to immediately purchase a house. It won’t be financially possible for everyone,” Sanjay Jain of Sangath Group told The Indian Express.

Jain said the Group has just finished 35 percent of the appointments for Phase-1 of the private undertaking where it is building 168 shrewd homes at costs between Rs 56-75 lakh. “We are building as per the smart features of GIFT City.
