The Government on June 8 approved 708 proposals for construction of 3.61 lakh houses under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana – Urban (PMAY-U).
The decision was taken at a meeting of the Central Sanctioning and Monitoring Committee (CSMC) under PMAY-U held in New Delhi. It was attended by 13 states/UTs.
The houses are proposed to be constructed across beneficiary-led construction and affordable housing in partnership verticals, said a press release issued by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA).
With this, the total number of sanctioned houses under PMAY(U) is now 112.4 lakh and so far, 82.5 lakh have been grounded for construction of which 48.31 lakh have been completed/delivered.
Speaking at the meeting, Durga Shanker Mishra, Secretary, MoHUA, said, “The demand for sanction has saturated in all states/UTs. Utilisation of unused funds and ensuring completion of the projects within stipulated time is our prime focus now.”
In addition, ‘PMAY- U Awards 2021 – 100 Days Challenge’ was also launched by Mishra.
The awards are given to recognize and celebrate the outstanding contribution and performances by states, UTs, urban local bodies and beneficiaries for successful implementation of the mission and create a healthy competition.
