New Houses to Come Up Under PMAY-Urban Scheme
The decision was taken among 14 States/UTs at the 52nd Meeting of the Central Sanctioning and Monitoring Committee (CSMC). These houses will be developed on vertical grounds of beneficiary-led buildings, affordable partnership housing and in-situ slum redevelopment.
The construction process is at different stages in more than 70 lakh houses and over 41 lakh houses are completed. The States also send proposals for project revision on different topics such as land, topographical hazard, inter-city migration, change of preferences of verticals, etc.
The MoHUA secretary, Durga Shanker Mishra, asked the States and UT to work rapidly with PMAY-Urban projects. The States/UTs decided to focus on completing and delivering homes to beneficiaries. He also called on the States/UTs to speed up the development of the ARHCs (Affordable Rental Housing Complexes) scheme.
It was the second meeting of the CSMC in the covid 19 pandemic period. The Ministry of Housing announced that it is focused on providing pucca houses by 2022 to all eligible Urban India beneficiaries.
