Prime Minister Narendra Modi will participate in ‘Grih Pravesham’ and inaugurate 1.75 lakh houses built under Pradhan Mantri Awaas Yojana – Gramin (PMAY-G) in the state of Madhya Pradesh, on 12 September, via video conferencing. All of these houses have been built/completed during the current challenging COVID-19 pandemic period.

Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh will also be present on the occasion. The program will be telecast live on DD News.

The Prime Minister had given a clarion call of “Housing for All by 2022”, for which a flagship programme of PMAY-G was launched on 20 November 2016. So far, 1.14 crore houses have already been built across the country under the programme.

In the state of Madhya Pradesh, 17 lakh poor households have also benefited from this scheme till now.  These are all households of poor people who either had no house or lived in dilapidated makeshift homes.

Under PMAY-G, each beneficiary is given a 100% grant of Rs 1.20 lakh with a  sharing ratio of 60:40 between Centre and State. Funds for all these houses constructed under PMAY-G are given by way of 4 instalments directly into the bank account of the beneficiary after verification of various stages of construction through Geotagged photographs. The scheme envisages constructing 2.95 crore houses by the year 2022.
