Integrated township is the new buzzword with realtors planning huge investments in projects that they say would reduce pressure on city infrastructure and bring in crores of investment into the housing sector.

An integrated township comprises residential and ancillary facilities such as school, hospital, hotel and retail.

Several developers like Tata Housing, Emar MGF, Ansal Properties and Infrastructure and Kumar Urban Development have planned integrated townships in the country.

'In new integrated townships, planners are looking at solutions to increasing pressure on existing urban infrastructure and rapid urbanisation,' Sahara Prime City Chief Executive Sushanto Roy told PTI.
