Status of Houses Constructed under Pradhan Mantri Awaas Yojana-Gramin

1.75 crore houses have been completed under PMAY-G

Posted On: 16 MAR 2022 5:31PM by PIB Delhi

The State-wise details of houses built under the Pradhan Mantri Awaas Yojana-Gramin (PMAY-G) in the financial years 2020-21 and 2021-22 (as on 09.03.2022) is given at Annexure.

Under the scheme, 2.28 crore houses have been sanctioned to the beneficiaries, out of which 1.75 crore houses have been completed as on 09.03.2022. The PMAY-G guidelines provides for construction of house within 12 months from the date of sanctioning the same to the beneficiary. The assistance is released to the beneficiary in a minimum of 3 installments linked to various stages of completion like at the time of sanction, foundation, plinth, windowsill, lintel, roof etc. Since the figures of house sanction and completion are dynamic and there is a gap of 12 months between sanction of house till its completion, therefore, there would always be some gap between the figures of houses sanctioned and houses built during the implementation of the scheme.

During the period of Covid-19 pandemic induced nation-wide lockdown, all construction activities including construction of houses under PMAY-G were also affected which retarded the pace of construction of PMAY-G houses. Besides, the delays are also due to delay in release of Central & State Share from State Treasury to State Nodal Account of PMAY-G, cases of unwillingness of beneficiaries to complete the construction, migration, disputed succession of deceased beneficiaries, delay in allotment of land to landless beneficiaries by the States/UTs and at times those occuring on account of General/Assembly/Panchayat elections, unavailability of building materials etc. The Ministry is taking the following initiatives to ensure timely completion of the houses under PMAY-G:

  1. Regular review of progress at the level of Ministry to ensure timely completion of targeted houses.
  2. The States/UTs have been requested to expedite the completion of houses approved under PMAY-G with specific focus and priority of houses for which 2nd and 3rd installments have been released.
  3. Daily monitoring on various parameters like gaps in sanction of houses, cleaning of PWL of PMAY-G.
  4. Timely allocation of targets to the States/UTs and release of adequate funds at the level of the Ministry.
  5. Promotion of eco-friendly & innovative technologies for house construction.
  6. Regular follow ups with the State to ensure release of central and state share of funds and provision of land to landless beneficiaries in rural areas.
  7. Expeditious resolution of technical issues and other constraints faced by the States.
  8. Steps are being taken to increase the coverage of Rural Mason Training (RMT) programme which would increase the availability of trained masons leading to faster construction of quality houses.
  9. Awards to the best performing States/UTs, Districts based on performance index dashboard, thereby creating healthy competition and motivation among the States/UTs for achieving the set targets.

The Union Cabinet has approved the continuation of PMAY-G beyond March, 2021 till March, 2024 for completion of remaining houses within the cumulative target of 2.95 crores houses under PMAY-G.
