The government has sanctioned 30.76 lakh houses since the launch of the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Urban), housing and urban affairs minister Hardeep Singh Puri said. “Currently, 15.65 lakh houses have been grounded and are at various stages of construction, and about 4.13 lakh houses have been constructed since the launch of the mission,” Puri said at the launch of a national workshop on the PMAY (Urban) and the Swachh Bharat Mission. The minister pegged the urban housing requirement at 12 million and said that the government is pursuing the reforms such as stamp duty exemption and single window clearance to ease the housing process. According to the Census of India, 2011 about 13.92 million households live in 33,510 slums across the country. The target of the PMAY (Urban) scheme is “essentially the urban poor” through in-situ rehabilitation along with an assistance of Rs 1 lakh per house.

Launched on June 25, 2015, the aim of PMAY is to address the gap in housing demand and supply in urban areas in respect of economically weaker sections, low and middle income groups and meet the target of “Housing for All” by 2022, with an aim to provide a decent pucca home. From the perspective of implementation, PMAY-U has four broad verticals — slum rehabilitation, affordable housing in partnership, subsidy for beneficiary-led individual house construction and credit-linked subsidy scheme — covering both demand-supply interventions.

Puri said that the in-situ slum rehabilitation (ISSR) scheme has had a few challenges in its implementation due to land related issues, financing models, selection of private developer, beneficiary participation and policy concerns of the states. However, he urged the states to adopt a slum-free approach and comprehensively develop their cities with focus on slum redevelopment taking complete advantage of the ISSR scheme. Puri also asked the states to ensure better outreach for the credit-linked subsidy scheme and focus on convergence between the banks, private sector and home buyers. On the progress in the affordable housing scheme, Puri said more focus should be on catering to the housing demand emerging from the economically weaker section of home buyers with no land ownership.

        The PM's housing scheme is one of the best that could happen to the weaker sections of the society who have been deprived of development by earlier govt's esp UPA who made schemes only to benefit themselves and their kin Mayavathi , Mamata, Lalu etc are case in point .Without any work they grow rich . The UPA govt does not issue BPL cards to the needy and will not pass on the benefits to them on technical reasons . Hope PM's housing schemes will be accessible to those who are earning less then 2lacs but do not possess BPL card.we are one of those who have been awaiting for all the schemes introduced by the congress govt in Karnataka as we have not yet been issued BPL card . Most of the deprived are banking on central schemes as states run by congress is all chaos and nothing else. jai hind

                It is observed that, whenever a housing loan sanctioned to poor families bound to purchase bricks Rs.13000/ per thousand bricks from the brick field.Generally, bricks are sold Rs.8500/ in the market.There is no control on prices from the Govt.The beneficiaries found very difficult to complete the houses.Hope, Govt must ask the Brick owners to fix bricks prices to normal rate i.e. Rs.8500/ .I am referring the prices in Agartala city area of Tripura.

                      All you facts and figures are baseless and just a gimmick to play fool around commin public. Truth is that you pay media to cleverly make public fool by using your nonsense facts and figures. Middle income group and poor has got nothing from your government and rich has become more rich. Modi and its party is playing fool.There is no difference in you and congress. Your awas yojna is designed as such that low and middle income group can only get benifit of 18 thousand rupees only. You increased fares of railway ticket ,delhi metro,LPG,Petrol diesel, GST caused so much difficulty to do business , then note ban and nothing done in education and health sector other than imposing Natliinal flag in ins utions. There is poor infrastructure in schools and government hospitals no monitoring of private hospitals.No control over population that is increasing so rapidly. Total failure. Only thing on news is Mandir Masjid debate and cow slaughter ban.
