“Let’s get into the mode of implementation and execution,” said Durga Shanker Mishra, Secretary, Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA).
Mishra urged the States/UTs to ensure 100% completion and delivery of PMAY-U houses to all its eligible beneficiaries within the mission period.
The participating States/UTs were also directed to use the online mechanism (MIS) for proper implementation and monitoring of the Mission.
The progress of Light House Projects (LHPs) and Demonstration Housing Projects (DHPs) was also reviewed by Secretary, MoHUA.
The foundation stones of the LHPs were laid by the Prime Minister on January 1, 2021. The houses under LHPs are being constructed at Lucknow, Ranchi, Rajkot, Agartala, Chennai and Indore.
To promote these LHP sites as Live Laboratories for transfer of technology to the field, the Ministry has initiated an Online Enrolment Drive for Technograhis to encourage large scale citizen participation and create technical awareness, on-site learning, find ideas for solutions, experimentation and encouraging innovation.
Construction of PMAY-U houses are in various stages. As of now, more than 73 Lakh houses have been grounded and nearly 43 Lakh have been completed.
