Welfare of poor
In order to provide shelter to all those poor families in Jammu and Kashmir, the government has started conducting new exercises so that all those left out deserving beneficiaries get the shelter in the next phase.
Recently LG Manoj Sinha transferred installments to the tune of Rs. 149.17 crore directly to the bank accounts of 35,097 beneficiaries under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana-Gramin, at the Civil Secretariat.
He said the PMAY-G will fulfil beneficiaries’ dream of a ‘Pucca House’ with basic amenities, boost their self-esteem, social status and standard of living.
Highlighting that the welfare of the poor & vulnerable section is the top priority of UT administration, the Lt Governor said that PMAY-G benefits genuinely homeless, those living in dilapidated houses and a large number of women & households from vulnerable groups. Basic needs assistance will give impetus to rural development and empower the poorest.
Under the leadership of Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji, welfare schemes like PMAY-G have transformed people’s lives. Our aim is to build a strong and prosperous rural J&K.
Despite being a slow starter, J&K has gained momentum in realizing the vision of ‘Housing for all’. Our target is to build more than 2 lakh houses. Special camps have been organized to identify the left out deserving beneficiaries of PMAY.
Housing provides stability to poor families and contributes to poverty reduction, and the families who have got their own house are now ready to fulfil other developmental aspirations of their family members.
