This study on anti-competitive practices in India’s affordable housing focuses on the effects of such practices in the construction industry on safe and affordable housing for the disadvantaged. It explores viable, market-driven solutions and advocates for more robust competition policies and legislation as key measures to combat anti-competitiveness in the industry.

The study aims at evidence-based policy development and programme implementation. Key findings from the study reveal the prevalence of micro-level monopolies, where influential local groups wield power in construction, and the existence of diverse and complex regulatory barriers that lead to significant delays and costs for both the economically disadvantaged and builders.
