PMAY Jharkhand Housing Scheme – 1.27 Lakh Houses for Slum People
Jharkhand govt. is consistently working to provide affordable houses to poor people and to realize the vision of Housing for All. So, govt. has decided to start a new housing project in which 53,000 houses in slums of urban areas and 74,000 houses for BPL people would be constructed. The decision to construct 1.27 lakh houses for poor people belonging to economically weaker sections comes in the wake of upcoming Diwali festival.
As per the initial estimates, the total cost to construct 1 unit of house is around Rs. 7.5 lakh. To meet these expenses, central govt. will provide Rs. 1 lakh while another Rs. 1 lakh would be pooled in by the state government. Even the builder will also contribute a share of 55% which will reduce the total cost of 1 unit by about Rs. 4 lakh. So, the beneficiary will be liable to pay only the remaining Rs. 1.5 lakh for a single unit.
Similarly, the state government is also going to provide houses to all those people who does not own a house in their name in any part of the country. All the prospective seekers (homebuyers) will have have to produce a certificate issued by the revenue workers of their native state. All the applicant people must compulsorily possess voter card and bank account.
