51 Lakh Houses Sanctioned under PMAY (U) in three Years of its implementation
Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna (PMAY) is a mission started with an aim to provide housing for all by the year 2022. The mission started in 2015 and will be attained in seven years i.e., during 2015 – 2022. A comprehensive mission of PMAY Housing Scheme aims to create: Affordable homes with water connection, toilet facilities, 24x7 electricity supply and complete access. Two crore houses is planned to be built across the country targeting the Lower Income Groups (LIG) and Economically Weaker Section of our society (EWS), basically the urban poor by the year 2022. Two million non-slum urban poor households are proposed to be covered under the Mission.
Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA) has conducted its 35th Central Sanctioning and Monitoring Committee (CSMC) meeting of Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) – Urban on 25th June, 2018 where a total of 3,18,900 houses from 6 States/UTs were approved. With this, the PMAY (U) has approved more than 51 Lakh dwelling units against the estimated demand of 1 crore. The scheme has completed three years of its implementation. The unprecedented performance is due to innovative architecture of the scheme where flexibility has been given to the States/UTs to approve the projects. The beneficiaries under the scheme are free to choose from four verticals of the Mission as per their preference. The State of Maharashtra has taken a big stride in achieving its target of providing houses to slum dwellers by getting 2.48 lakh houses approved in 35th CSMC. The total project cost approved under PMAY(U) stands at Rs. 2.81 lakh crore with a Central Assistance of Rs. 77,934 crore. A total of 7.60 lakh houses are already completed and another 28 lakh have been grounded. Massive expansion of housing finance through CLSS is taking place. As on today, more than 2 lakh beneficiaries have been given subsidy under the CLSS vertical of the mission which is substantially higher than 18,166 beneficiaries who benefited from earlier comparable Interest Subsidy Schemes (ISHUP/RRY) – 2008 to 2013.
