The Uttar Pradesh government will be constructing around one lakh houses under the government's ambitious Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) scheme in the next six months. Around 28 development authorities and Awas Vikas Parishad (AVP) will be implementing the project and providing homes for the low-income group (LIG).
The Agra Development Authority (ADA) has a target of developing low-cost homes for around 10,000 families, whereas the Lucknow Development Authority has been given the responsibility to construct 12,000 houses under the scheme. The AVP, a separate department of the State government, has been asked to construct around 30,000 homes in various districts such as 10,000 houses in Kanpur, 9,000 in Ghaziabad, 6,500 in Allahabad and 5,000 in Moradabad.
Officials from the Department stated that each LIG category house would consist of two rooms. The house will include a kitchen, a toilet, a bathroom and a balcony. The house is estimated to cost Rs 4.50 lakh. The beneficiary needs to invest an amount of Rs 2 lakh, while the Government will contribute the rest of the amount. The Central government will provide Rs 1.50 lakh, whereas the State government will contribute Rs 1 lakh.
