PNS n The Chas Municipal Corporation (CMC) is all set to conduct geo tagging of the premises in the municipal area once again, aiming to enable transparency in tax collection and to increase the revenue.
Additional Municipal Commissioner of CMC Sashi Prakash Jha issued a directive to the officials and staffs directing them to complete re-geo tagging of all the premises within the limits of corporation in the next fifteen days.
"Stringent action would be taken against the official if the work is not completed on time," Jha said.
“We are also on move to turn Chas into ‘Slum Free’ City, a detailed work plan for which is ready and we are planning to achieve the target by the end of 2022,” he added.
Jha informed that the focus will be on core infrastructure services like adequate and clean water supply, sanitation and solid waste management, efficient urban mobility and public transport, affordable housing for the poor, power supply, robust information technology connectivity, governance, safety and security of citizens, health and education, and sustainable urban environment.
Chas Municipal Corporation has to spend Rs 383 crore on the beautification of Chas City which has been developed as a ‘Smart City’.
Jha urged the people residing in slums to apply online for PM Aawas by August 25.
After applying online, the beneficiaries have to submit an affidavit for their annual income along with self-attested copies of Aadhar Card of all family members, Land deed and receipt (rent), family photo with land, Xerox copy of bank passbook, Voter's ID card at CMC office.
These documents must be accompanied with an application forwarded or recommended by Ward Commissioner, Deputy Mayor and Mayor of CMC.
This housing scheme will consider economically weaker BPL as well as APL categories, and their annual income should not exceed Rs. 3 lakhs, Jha said.
The most important thing is that the beneficiary should not have a pucca house on his or her name, or in the name of any of his or her family member in any part of India, said Jha.
“Our motto is to bring a drastic change in their lifestyle by providing houses to the beneficiaries,” he added.
Jha said, the administration is preparing to come down heavily on the PMAY beneficiaries who have not yet started the construction work of their houses despite withdrawing money under this scheme.
