High-rise buildings' increased FSI will play a major role in solving the problem of affordable housing, leading Indian architect Hafeez Contractor has said.

“The challenge before the construction industry was to provide affordable housing to 70 percent of the population of the country who did not have their own housing. High-rise buildings' increased FSI will play a major role in solving the problem and also preserve land for agriculture,” Mr Contractor said at the inauguration of the Constro 2012 in Pune.

The country's biggest international exhibition on construction machinery, materials, methods and projects, Constro 2012 is organised by Pune Construction Engineering Research Foundation.
