The new Model Tenancy Act 2020, which is currently under discussions at the Centre, aims to bridge the trust deficit between tenants and landlords by clearly delineating the obligations of tenants and landlords. This will give a thrust to the rental sector and will help create a rental housing stock, which would enable students, professional as well as migrant population find accommodation easily and will open up the rental housing market, freeing up unavailable stock which will be make thousands of locked houses in Mumbai available on rent. This will enable rationalisation of prices and will lead to a win-win situation for all.  A survey showed that approximate 30 to 35 % of the population staying in any metropolitan city do not belong to that city and have no intentions of buying a property. This shows that they only want to stay in the city for work and hence to rent out a property. This is one third of the housing demand for the city and therefore this entire market is being neglected. A report by Savills India, released in August 2020, had said that “Driven by rapid urbanization, migration to cities and the rising cost of home ownership, rental housing in India is likely to see a boom in the next two years.”
