PM Modi Releases Rs. 2,691 cr for PMAY Beneficiaries

Prime Minister Narendra Modi lashed out at previous governments saying the poor had to bear the brunt of their "wrong" policies and intentions.  

The poor people never believed in the past that the government will help them get a roof above their heads, said the Prime Minister. 

"Their (previous governments) policies were wrong and the poor had to bear the brunt of their wrong intentions," he said while releasing financial assistance of 2,691 crore to 6.1 lakh beneficiaries in Uttar Pradesh under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana. 

The prime minister said to the people of Uttar Pradesh in his 30-minute speech through video conferencing that they have not forgotten those governments in the past.  

Modi also praised Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for the all-round development in the state and speedy implementation of central schemes, saying it has given it a "new identity". 

The prime minister earlier pressed the remote button to release the assistance and interacted with some beneficiaries. 

Union Rural Development Minister Narendra Singh Tomar and Adityanath were present on the occasion.   

As per reports, the assistance includes release of first installment to 5.30 Lakh beneficiaries and second installment to 80,000 beneficiaries who have already availed of the first installment of assistance under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana Gramin (PMAY-G). 

Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana is an initiative by Government of India in which affordable housing will be provided to the urban poor with a target of building 20 million affordable houses by 31 March 2022. 

So far 1.26 crore houses have already been built across the country under the scheme, an official release said. Modi had given a call of Housing for All by 2022, for which a flagship programme of PMAY-G was launched on November 20, 2016. 

Under PMAY-G, each beneficiary is given 100% grant of 1.20 lakh (in plains) and 1.30 lakh (in hill states/NE region/difficult areas/JK & Ladakh besides Naxal-hit districts besides areas falling under the Integrated Action Plan IAP). 

 

The beneficiaries of PMAY-G are also provided support of unskilled labor wages under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS) and assistance of 12,000 for construction of toilets through the Swachh Bharat Mission-Gramin (SBM-G), MGNREGS or any other dedicated source of funding.
