DBT (Direct Benefit Transfer) :
It can also be termed as Design, Build and Transfer Model through which private builders can build, design and transfer houses to the Public Authority which has been constructed on Government Lands. Under this model Home-Buyers will make payment directly to the Government and the private builders will get their payment from public authority after successful completion of each part of the project.
Cross-Subsidised Housing with other development:
Government lands will be allotted based on number of affordable houses to be built on the plot offered to private builders. Governments also cross subsidizing this segment from the revenues from high end house building or commercial development.
Annuity Based-Subsidised Housing:
Government will invest some amount as the deferred which will be paid to the private builders. As per Government norms the allocation of Land to builders is based on unit cost of construction.
Annuity-cum-Capital Grant-Based-Affordable Housing:
Apart from annuity payments, private builders could be paid a share of project cost as an advance payment.
Direct Relationship-Ownership Housing:
Under this option, promoters will directly deal with buyers and recover costs. Allocation of public land is based on unit cost of construction while earlier we have seen that Government act as a mediator.

Under this model, private builders recover the costs through the rental incomes which comes from the houses built on government lands.
