This was accomplished by assessing the levels of housing satisfaction of the householders and the degrees of satisfaction of beneficiaries living in selected JnNURM housing schemes estates within west zone of Surat city. Four major housing components – Basic Amenities (A), Dwelling (D), Neighborhood (NH) and management (M). Seven JnNURM housing schemes are selected as a study area in this schemes total 1872 housing unit are constructed in which 590 housing units are interviewed. The results of analysis indicate that level of beneficiaries housing satisfaction varies and it’s dependent on the basic amenities, dwelling, neighborhood and management interaction system. It demonstrated that the level of beneficiaries’ satisfaction with the housing management and neighborhood was below average (Dissatisfied) but their level of beneficiaries’ satisfaction with the housing basic amenities was above average (satisfied).
