The Punjab Police Housing Corporation Limited was established by the Punjab Government on the basis "ACTION PLAN" prepared by the Government of India with the aim of having an agency which could construct buildings of the Police Department efficiently and promptly. The satisfaction level of the Police housings for the Police personnal with reference to then existing strength of Police forces was very scanty i.e. only 8% of the required accommodation which was required to be raised atleast to 40% by constructing about 3000-4000 houses every year. The background for setting up of the Punjab Police Housing Corporation is that till 1976, the work regarding construction of houses and Police buildings was entrusted to the Punjab Public Works Department.
