Now, Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana’s (PMAY) defaulters will have to face a hard time.Chas Municipal Corporation (CMC) is preparing to take action on the PMAY beneficiaries who have not yet completed their houses' construction work despite withdrawing money under this scheme.
At least 900 beneficiaries have been identified who have not completed their houses' construction work despite withdrawing the money, said AK Mishra, Nodal Officer, CMC. “They have to complete their construction work anyhow by the February end,” he added.
Aiming to turn the city into a slum-free zone, CMC is at work. People residing in the slum or homeless, will be shifted into apartments. We have selected 5329 beneficiaries to provide them with Pucca houses under the PMAY scheme, informed an official. Among them, 3197 beneficiaries have completed their construction work, while the construction work of around 1232 beneficiaries is satisfactory. Around, 900 beneficiaries are yet to complete the construction of their houses, he said.
We have also planned to settle down urban homeless people under Prime Minister Aawas Yojna (Urban). The layout of apartments has been ready, with an investment of Rs 56 crore apartments would be constructed at Kalapathar and Kamaldih in next two years, he said.
“Houses would be come-up on 4 acres of land at Kalapathar and one acre of land at Kamaldih where 540 and 220 homeless would be settled. Each house will have a bedroom, dining room, kitchen and bathroom,” said the official.
