It is said that by 2050, urban dwelling population will rise to 814 million people. The calculation predicted is almost twice the number that already reside in urban areas. The major challenges also include providing people with housing options that are affordable and other major related concerns such as sanitation along with sustainable development. The Ministry also has to ensure a sustainable and safe environment for the urban population.
This scheme launch is intended to target urban areas of the following options to States or Union Territories as well as cities as mention earlier.
The government will use the The Socio Economic and Caste Census of 2011 (SECC 2011) to identify and select the list of PMAY beneficiaries. The village panchayats along with tehsils will be considered for consultation of beneficiaries before making the list under the rural housing scheme. This is going to be done in order to ensure transparency of the project and also make sure that only the deserving receive the aid in housing.

However, if your husband, father or any other family member that you reside with has applied, your application will be rejected.2. I am a senior citizen and fall under the local income groups? While the PMAY scheme seems financially viable, as an elderly person I would prefer a housing in the Ground Floor. What should I do?

However, ensure that you apply early since the priorities among senior citizens for ground floor is also shared with differently abled beneficiaries as well.3. What does one mean by DBT? People refer to Direct Benefit Transfer as DBT.

The funds allocated for the rural housing scheme under PMAY will also be sent off to the beneficiaries through direct fund transfer to the bank accounts of the listed and identified beneficiaries. Labour allocation and labour training for the Awas Yojana 4. Why will the Government Geo tag the properties under the PMAY housing project?
The importance of transparency in the whole housing project is essential, right from the scheme rules and regulations being created to the basic requirement of sanitation being implemented in the housing. All of that must be followed, which requires geo tagging, to have all information available for parties involved, whenever needed. Geo tagging, basically means adding metadata to a photograph or map of your home located in the map. It also helps retain updated satellite imagery of the progress of the project. This helps to remotely monitor each unit, without having to be there in person.5. How long will the PMAY project last?

As long as they also cover all the other eligibility requirements, such as documentation or a single applicant from a family, this demographic will not be ignored by this scheme. However if you are not in the income groups required by the schemes, you will not be eligible for the scheme.8. What is the maximum annual income should I have to be eligible for PMAY?
Your annual income should not be more than Rs. 18 lakhs. However, there are no lower limits for the PMAY income requirement.9. Why would sustainable and eco-friendly technologies be used for construction in the housing projects under the PMAY? Are they not making it more expensive that way?
Eco-friendly projects do not mean that the PMAY constructions will make the ultimate housing price expensive. It only means that it will ensure that the environment is not harmed in anyway. It is essential to ensure that people in the future and that too in the near future do not perish due to environmental hazards, considering that global warming is a real phenomenon and is hitting our country, more than we realize.10.
