The Government of India has launched a housing for all initiative, known as Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana. As per this scheme, the government will be providing affordable housing units to the urban poor in India through subsidy schemes and other benefits. Uttar Pradesh is one of the nine states that has been chosen for the plan.
Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY)
The state government is already firing on all cylinders to provide affordable housing to people belonging to the Economically Weaker Sections (EWS), Low Income Groups (LIG) and Middle Income Groups (MIG).
For example, the State Urban Development Agency (SUDA Uttar Pradesh) has already approved the construction of thousands of housing units throughout the state.
These units will be constructed under the Beneficiary led Construction scheme (BLC), as a part of the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana Uttar Pradesh. To list a few statistics, the city of Allahabad has had more than 6,000 housing projects sanctioned under the BLC plan. Similarly, in the holy city of Varanasi, more than 8,000 projects have been approved.
Similarly, the state government has launched the Mukhyamantri Awas Yojana, which is aimed only at those living below the poverty line. The main objective of this plan is to provide housing to the poor people in the state. Moreover, the central and state government will provide financial help to the beneficiaries.
