Haryana to provide funds to eligible PMAY beneficiaries in rural areas for construction of houses

Chandigarh, Aug 1 (UNI) With a view to ensuring that each family in the rural areas has own house under the ‘Housing for All Scheme’, Haryana government has decided that rural families in the state which neither have own house nor are in the list of eligible beneficiaries under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna (PMAY) would be provided financial assistance for the construction of houses under the PMAY.
This and several other decisions were taken at a meeting presided over by Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar here today to review the progress of various important schemes and projects.
It was decided that an applicant desirous of getting financial assistance would be required to get the application marked either from the gram sarpanch or gram sachiv or member of zila parishad or panchayat samiti or the former sarpanch.
In the survey conducted by the Development and Panchayats Department, as many as 18,000 eligible beneficiaries were identified under the PMAY scheme and funds have been sanctioned for the construction of houses.
While reviewing the Housing for All Scheme, (Urban), the Chief Minister said the state government aimed to ensure that proper systemic housing facility was also provided to the people residing in urban slum areas.
The meeting decided that Haryana Shehri Vikas Pradhikarnan (HSVP) would construct affordable houses for those living in the Rajiv Colony in Panchkula and it would be ensured that they shift to the newly constructed dwelling units.
Reviewing the Saubhagya Scheme to provide electricity connection to each household in the state, the Chief Minister directed the officers to ensure that all households and Dhanis have electricity connection. The state government has covered entire North Haryana under the Saubhagya Scheme by ensuring electricity connection in all 15.80 lakh households’ consumers who have applied for the same.
Similarly, electricity connections have also been released to all households in South Haryana except a few households in Mewat. However, a contract has already been allotted for providing electricity connections to these remaining households, the work on which would soon be started.
On this, the Chief Minister issued directions that wherever electricity line is available, connection would be released by the Electricity Department whereas, in the areas where electricity lines are not available, in such areas connection of solar energy should be made available. The state government is committed to providing adequate electricity supply to all its residents, he added.
Mr Khattar said funds of Mines and Minerals should be utilized for the development of villages, especially under the Shivdham Yojna. Funds would be released for the construction of Shivdham in those affected villages which are situated within a radius of ten-kilometers around the mine in the district.
Under the Ayushman Bharat Yojana to provide cashless treatment facilitity to patients, as many as 15.53 lakh eligible families have been identified. All the Additional Deputy Commissioners in the State have been asked to fast track work for verification of this data of beneficiaries.
These beneficiaries would be issued QR codes which would have the entire information feeded in it. Upon producing this code, the patient would get the treatment in any empanelled hospital. As many as 250 hospitals are likely to be empanelled in the state by August 15, 2018.
