Jagan launches works of housing colonies

Visakhapatnam ANDHRA Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy on Thursday virtually inaugurated the construction works of YSR Jagananna Colonies across the State.

The government wants to construct 15,60,227 houses for the homeless in phase-1 at a cost of Rs 28,084 crore. In order to monitor the housing process, the Chief Minister designated a Joint Collector in each district, apart from the existing three Joint Collectors.

Speaking on the occasion, Reddy said like never before in any State by any government, as many as 30.76 lakh house sites were distributed to the homeless poor and embarked on another historical programme of constructing their dream houses. For the next one week, the foundation laying will be taken up in a festive atmosphere adhering to Covid protocols.

He stated that the construction of houses will be taking place in a phased manner, where in both phases, as many as 28,30,227 houses will be built at a cost of Rs 50,944 crore.

In phase-1, 15.60 lakh houses will be constructed by June, 2022 and 12.70 lakh houses in phase-2 by 2023. The Chief Minister stated that this programme gives more satisfaction than any other welfare initiative and for fast completion, the project was associated with PMAY.

Reddy said unlike in the past, the current government is building each house in a 340 square feet area with a bedroom, hall, kitchen, bathroom and porch. Also each house is provided with two fans, two tube lights, four bulbs, and a Syntex tank. He said that this would become an asset worth Rs 5-15 lakhs for each beneficiary.

He said the government will also provide 20 metric tonnes of sand free of cost from nearby sand rigs for the construction works. He stated that the government has given three options to the beneficiaries, and made it clear that the beneficiary can make their own decision.

The Chief Minister also said that any left out eligible person can apply for the house and houses will be sanctioned within 90 days after completing the verification process.

Ministers Ch Sriranganatha Raju, Botsa Satyanarayana, Chief Secretary Adityanath Das, Special CS Housing Ajay Jain, AP State Housing Corporation Limited MD Narayana Bharat Gupta and other officials were present.
