Pradhan Mantri Awaas Yojana Gramin (PMAYG)

Recently, new changes have been made in the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana- Gramin (PMAY-G).

Under this scheme, the following measures are being taken to augment the work being done:

  • It is being monitored on various parameters like the interval between the approval of houses and the completion of construction work.
  • Emphasis is being laid on timely release of Central share and State share from Treasury to State Nodal Account (SNA).
  • Regular linkages are being established with the states to ensure the availability of land for the landless beneficiaries in rural areas.

  • States/UTs have sanctioned houses for 2.27 crore (78.9% of the total) beneficiaries.
  • 74 crore houses completed
