381 Projects of Slum Rehabilitation Authority approved under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana

In Mumbai 381 projects of the Slum Rehabilitation Authority have been approved by the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) committees at the Centre this year, reports DNA.

Bringing the Slum Rehabilitation Authority under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana in April this year has finally borne fruits. A PMAY Cell was established by the SRA in May 2018  for the implementation of the PMAY Scheme. The Scheme comprises of 381 projects which have received the nod of both the State Level Sanctioning and Monitoring Committee (SLSMC) and the committee headed by Secretary, Housing and Urban Affairs (HoUA).

As per SRA policy, 1.24 lakh tenements will be allotted free of cost to owners of huts constructed before January 1, 2000, who have not claimed subsidy under PMAY. According to data available from SRA, 47,984 tenements under PMAY will be allocated at construction cost to the owners of huts constructed between January 1, 2000-January 1, 2011. 28,079 additional tenements, which will be available at construction cost, are being constructed.

According to a senior official from SRA’s PMAY cell, they do not claim any subsidy for the free houses but they are part of the target and are included in it. “All future projects will be included in the PMAY scheme. Currently, we have 381 projects,” he said.

Under PMAY, the beneficiary gets a benefit of Rs 2.5 lakh, which includes both centre and state’s contribution. To become a beneficiary under this scheme, one can’t have a pucca house anywhere in the country.

Since the BJP led NDA came to power in 2014, 45.86 lakh houses for the poor in urban areas have been approved under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna (urban). The aim is to reportedly construct 1.2 crore houses for the poor living in urban areas by 2022.
