In pursuance of the Government’s vision of “Housing for All”, Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA) is implementing Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana-Urban (PMAY-U) since 25.06.2015 for giving Central assistance to States/ Union Territories (UTs) for providing all-weather pucca houses to all eligible urban households. States/ UTs have undertaken demand survey under PMAY-U for assessing actual demand of housing. Total assessed demand of houses reported by States/ UTs under the scheme is 112.24 lakhs. Based on the project proposals submitted by the States/ UTs, 1,15,08,778 houses have been sanctioned across the country. State/ UT-wise details of number of houses sanctioned under PMAY-U are at Annexure.
In order to achieve the vision of ‘Housing for All’, Ministry monitors progress of the Scheme through periodic review meetings, video-conferences and field visits. Ministry has advised States/ UTs to expedite the construction of sanctioned houses so that all houses are completed within the stipulated timeline.
PMAY-U addresses affordable housing requirement in urban areas through four verticals: (i) Beneficiary-led individual house construction or enhancement (BLC) (ii) Affordable Housing in Partnership (AHP) (iii) Credit-Linked Subsidy Scheme (CLSS) and (iv) “In-Situ” Slum Redevelopment (ISSR).
