In the year 2018-19, the Modi government will give home to nearly 70 lakh families. For this, 21 lakh in urban areas and 49 lakh in the rural areas will be built.In view of the general elections to be held in 2019, the government has prepared the entire draft so that the promise of giving home to all by 2022 will be visible till March 2019. As well as constructing a house in the rural area under the Prime Minister’s housing scheme, 80 thousand people will also be provided employment by connecting the construction sector.
21 thousand will be spend in rural scheme: The Modi government has prepared a big plan for the Prime Minister’s housing scheme Urban and Rural. While focusing on the rural area in 2018, it was said that 49 lakh houses would be built during the year. Not only that, about 80 thousand people will be given training in mation (mistry). For this, a budget of Rs. 21 thousand crores will be given to Rural Development Ministry. In addition to this, basic amenities will be provided to the homeless.
21 lakh houses will be built in urban area: Under the Prime Minister’s Housing Scheme (Urban), the government has set a target to complete 21 lakh houses in 2018-19. At the same time, Central Assistance will be approved for projects of approximately 30 lakh new homes. The government’s target is that 75 percent of the households who have built houses will also have an occupancy. The Government has made a provision of Rs. 4514.92 crores for this.
Subsidy will be given to 1 lakh: The most attractive scheme of the Prime Minister’s Housing Scheme is the subsidy on home loan interest. Under this scheme, EWS, LIG and middle income group will be given subsidy of 3 to 6.5 per cent on the interest of home loans. The government’s goal is to provide subsidy to one lakh people in the year 2018-19. For this about 1,900 crores have been provided.
Till now so far the Government: The Government had started the Prime Minister’s Housing Scheme in 2015, which was aimed at 20 million urban cities and 10 million households in rural area by 2022. In this case, the government is badly lagging behind. So far, nearly 3 lakh houses have been built. While the occupancy rate in these homes is also very low. Although the government has taken several important steps for this, but due to the negligent attitude of the States, the Central Government is far from the target. That is why now the government has made a comprehensive plan for this.
