Cabinet okays Model Tenancy Act for circulation to the States, UTs for adoption

New Delhi, June 2, 2021

The Union Cabinet today approved the Model Tenancy Act for circulation to all States and Union Territories (UTs) for adoption by way of enacting fresh legislation or amending existing rental laws suitably.

It will help overhaul the legal framework with respect to rental housing across the country, which would help spur its overall growth, an official press release said.

According to it, the Model Tenancy Act aims at creating a vibrant, sustainable and inclusive rental housing market in the country.

"It will enable creation of adequate rental housing stock for all the income groups thereby addressing the issue of homelessness. Model Tenancy Act will enable institutionalisation of rental housing by gradually shifting it towards the formal market.

"The Model Tenancy Act will facilitate unlocking of vacant houses for rental housing purposes. It is expected to give a fillip to private participation in rental housing as a business model for addressing the huge housing shortage," the release added.
