The rural development department has been given a target to complete 33 lakh houses in 2016-17, which include houses that were taken up under the Indira AwaasYojana (IAY) and were incomplete on April 1, 2016, said a press release.
Many of them were incomplete for many years. Of these, 21.57 lakh houses have been completed so far. This is nearly double of what was being completed each year in the 2012-13 to 2014-15 period.
On November 20, 2016, prime minister Narendra Modi launched Pradhan Mantri Awaas Yojana (Gramin) - PMAY(G), with an original approval for 33 lakh new PMAY Gramin houses, which has now been increased to 44 lakh units.
The states have started the registration process for construction and over 14.23 lakh beneficiaries have already been registered so far.
As many as 16.53 lakh images of current dwellings have been uploaded on the AwaasSoftwebsite. The work on all these houses is expected to be started over the next one month. Altogether one crore and 33 lakh houses will be completed in three years from 2016-17 to 2018-19.
