Bhopal Development Authority takes the lead in the provision of civic amenities and availability of residential houses at affordable rates. The main aim of the housing authority is to shape the growth pattern of the city by providing the basic housing infrastructure. While planning for the development of the city, Bhopal Development Authority also takes into consideration the needs of rural areas. However, the focus is more on increasing housing infrastructure for urban population. The pace of development in Bhopal properties gets quicker with the work of housing authorities in the city.
To achieve their objectives, the regional housing authorities in the city are roping in the services of building contractors, home architects, engineers, planners and the likes. The plots and sites are allotted to housing companies or builders for the construction of residential complexes. Upon the completion of a housing project, the houses are allocated to the people already registered with it. Bhopal Development Authority has so far several projects to its credit. Some worth mentioning includes Rishi Nagar Scheme Char Imli, Construction of houses and shops in Manisha Market Shapura, Construction of residential cum commercial complex in Panchasheel Nagar and Kushabhau Thakre Inter State Bus Terminus.
