In a recent push towards Housing for All programme that aims to provide a home for every Indian by 2022, the Uttar Pradesh government has announced the addition of 7.5 lakh houses under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY). The remaining beneficiaries will be eligible for subsidy under the Mukhyamantri Awas Yojna (MAY).
In collaboration with the Uttar Pradesh government and the central government, an additional 7.5 lakh houses will be constructed under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY). The state government is also helping the beneficiaries of PMAY through Mukhyamantri Awas Yojana (MAY).
According to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, more than 50,700 families have received the benefit of MAY in the last three years. Financial benefits of Rs 1.30 lakh have been provided to the beneficiaries under the scheme. The state government has also directed the officials to conduct a survey of the beneficiaries of the ‘Maikana Scheme’, which provides permanent residency to the wanderers. The state government is ensuring that the beneficiaries of MAY are connected to various schemes of the government such as the Ujjwala scheme, ration card and electricity connection.
The state government is also making efforts to associate beneficiaries with that of livestock rearing, farming and small scale industries.
