Govt to build 4.5 lakh Abua houses this year

Saturday, 02 March 2024 | PNS | Ranchi

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Alamgir Alam on Friday said that there was a plan to build 3 lakh 50 thousand Abua houses in the budget for the financial year 2024-25. But on the initiative of Chief Minister Champai Soren, the number has been increased to 4 lakh 50 thousand. Now the government will construct one lakh more houses so that more beneficiaries are entitled to the schemes. Alam was speaking at the budget session of the Jharkhand Assembly.

The Abua Awas Yojana is flagship programme of State Government which was launched last year.

Under the scheme, three-room houses will be made available to 8 lakh needy in the next three years. First installment of Rs 50,000 was given to the beneficiaries. As per the target fixed by state government, Abua houses will be given to two lakh people in the current financial year, 3.5 lakh people in the year 2025 and 2.5 lakh people in the year 2026.

The needy and destitute will be provided three room pucca houses along with a kitchen spread over 31 square meters constructed at the cost of Rs 2 lakh per unit. As of now, nearly 30 lakh applications have been received which have already been verified.

Those whose applications for housing are pending will be completed. He mentioned all the schemes started during the tenure of the coalition government.

Alam also said that ‌ 1500 kilometers of roads will be built under rural development. Construction of road network will open employment opportunities for the people. People of BJP talk about employment but the Central Government had also talked about providing 2 crore jobs every year but what happened? From 1932, our government passed a bill to decide localities on the basis of Khatian. Bill passed to increase reservation limit of OBC from 14 percent to 27%. Bill made to stop mob lynching. Our eyes are on our manifesto. A lot of work has been done on its basis.

The minister said that till 2019-20, 6 lakh 60 thousand people in Jharkhand were getting old age pension. But now 25.96 lakh people are getting pension. Our government is working dedicatedly in the interest of the public.

On the sixth day of the budget session of the Assembly, MLA Lobin Hembram raised the issue of transfer of land of a tribal raiyat of Hiranpur of Pakur in the name of another. He alleged that DC has committed this mistake. The reply provided by the Department to the House regarding this matter is misleading. An attempt has been made to mislead the House. On this, Minister Rameshwar Oraon said that the government will get the matter investigated by the Commissioner.
