Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA), Government of India, is a federal ministry with executive authority over the formulation and administration of the rules and regulations and laws relating to the housing and urban development in India. The ministry was under the charge of Venkaiah Naidu and was given to Hardeep Singh Puri when Naidu was elected Vice President of India.[2] The Ministry became independent from the Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation in 2004,[3] but was later re-merged with it in 2017.[4]

The ministry also published the National City Rating, which ranked the cleanest cities in India, under which Indore was rated as the cleanest.[5]

The ministry announced Smart Cities in India on 27 August 2015.

In July 2019, the ministry released specifications for Metrolite transport system - a cheaper, smaller and slower metro system.[6]
