Count of PMAY units to be increased by 7.5 lakh in UP


The Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) is a much-talked-about affordable housing solution that intends to provide homes to all by 2022. PMAY was launched in 2015 by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Its mission was to offer low-cost housing solutions to the poor urban and rural population of India.

The plan also had the provision to offer home loan PMAY subsidy on interest portion to 6.5% and Rs.2.67 lakh.

It is being given as per income categories of people under the credit linked subsidy scheme (CLSS).

They are Economically Weaker Section (EWS), Lower Income Group (LIG), and Mid Income Group 1 and 2 (MIG 1 and MIG 2).

The construction of houses using eco-friendly and sustainable materials and technologies have been in full swing.

The PMAY scheme has managed to deliver 40 lakh houses to beneficiaries across urban and rural India.

Now, the Uttar Pradesh Government has asked for an additional 7.5 lakh housing units.

Anyone who has been so far left out of the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana is eligible to make the most of it.

As per Yogi, many social communities have still not been able to avail of the benefits of the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana so far. Some of them have been Musahar and Vantangiya. They have not received PMAY perks till 2017. Even since the launch of Mukhyamantri Awas Yojana, a lot of them have been able to pocket the benefits.

Adityanath is also of the opinion that applicants chosen for this scheme will also be given the benefit of other schemes automatically if they are deprived of it.
