Finland Vs India on Homelessness

Both Finland and India have tried to tackle homelessness and offer something more than just shelter. But how effective have they been?

    Well.. Just start the comparison between two countries with population.. Many European countries including Finland are under populated and considering their decent economy it is not a wonder that Government is able to plan a solution for the homeless people (To be frank it's a great attempt by Finland to pay attention to homeless people)... On the other side India is a country with rapidly growing population and it is a herculean task to first even calculate all the needy homeless people and study about them to understand their status and immediate needs..

    The World Economic Forum says Finland's approach to homelessness might be the most successful in Europe:

    Indians are smarter, they take homes from govt. , rent it out and move back to the footpaths. Also unlike Finland, Indians refuse to pay any taxes, only 15% of the population pays taxes while the others want to enjoy Govt aid. The reservation policy makes the scenario worst, only the rich low caste grab the jobs while the poor are left at their own fate by their own people (please note that the caste system has been eradicated long back but the political parties see a vote bank and refuse to scrap reservation).

    Even the Indian govt. Provides house not only the present but even the past govts.These people put the alloted houses at rent craving to earn money and they themselves stay homeless... SO what can govt. Do in that case At least there should be some initiative by their side as well by not renting those govt flats . .... it's not a fault of govt. Both the govt. And these people need to work on themselves..... even the govt. Needs to be stirgent as well ..

    It doesnt work like that in India, scheme will be announced by govt, funds will be decided, funds will be catered to states for the beneficiary. Now Mlas and mps will eat most of it, then comes ministers and then executive officers 80-90% funds will be used up by our elected gentlemen and ladies and rest .....for the beneficiary the process will be so hectic with illogical rules, strict documentation and unannounced deadlines plus babugiri attitudes of sarkari employees that homeless people will find it better to be homeless than roaming around these babus for entire life. However statistical data will surely show better than Finland or whatever country. Other countries has good or bad form of democracy, we have self destructive democracy. Otherwise how do you expect people still consider Lalu a leader and Salman shouldn't be jailed. Crazy people man .....

    I'm surprised when you say, India tried to tackle homelessness. I ve seen banks writing off bad loans to to big corporates and governments struggling to get gigantic fraudsters to pay for their deeds. When did my tax money contribute to the poor homeless people? Do let me know.

    i think in India no one is poor if you altered the migration of people from village to urban. this is only possible if greater opportunities are provided in the villages instead of urban areas..growth in India is a loop where more people are migrating to cities.

    Here the government thinks best ways to loot people. People with homes will soon become homeless.
