The Mass Housing Law (Law No.: 2985) set TOKİ as a public legal entity affiliated with the Prime Ministry whereas the said Law also set its duties, incomes, supervision and the fields in which it makes disbursements.
When the items drawn up as the incomes of the Housing Development Administration (TOKİ) by the said Law’s 2nd Article are examined within this scope, it is seen that the appropriation allocated by the Budget Laws is also included in the Administration’s incomes, but when this Article is assessed as a hole however, the Administration then appears as a Special Budgeted state economic enterprise in terms of its sources of income and the locations in which these resources will be used.
On the other hand, the Budget Appropriation for TOKİ, the years of which have been established by the Budget Laws, is allocated to the Administration through Prime Ministry’s affiliated transfer composition. In this sense, TOKİ’s said budget appropriation allocated from the Prime Ministry’s pertaining transfer composition bears a fiscal aid status.
TOKİ is a non-profit government administration. It has a well-established non-profit business model which avoids many of the common pitfalls of institutionalized bureaucracy.
TOKİ reports directly to the Prime Minister’s Office rather than being part of the general administrative bureaucracy.
