Will the amount of PM Awas Yojana increase?
The Estimates Committee of the Jharkhand Legislative Assembly has recommended four lakh rupees for the construction of houses under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana in the state. Committee Chairman Deepak Birua laid the report of the Estimates Committee on the Table of the House on the last day of the Monsoon session. JMM MLA Deepak Birua says that the price of every item has increased. In fact, due to the inflation of sand, cement, rods, bricks, ballast, the cost of houses being built under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana in rural areas has increased.
Request to the central government and state government
Birua said that BPL families are not able to give 50 thousand to one lakh rupees from their side. In such a situation, the cost of the houses being built under the PM Awas Yojana running with the cooperation of the Central and State Government should be increased from Rs 1.20 lakh to Rs 4 lakh, so that houses can be built practically and people come forward for it. At the same time, he also said that the government of the state can consider increasing the state share. Legislators Baidyanath Ram, Narayan Das, Lambodar Mahto, and Amba Prasad were present as members in the Estimates Committee.
