Shivraj Singh Chouhan, the chief minister of Madhya Pradesh, launched the “Mukhyamantri Ladli Bahna Awas Yojana” on Sunday at the Kushabhau Thakre Convention Centre (Minto Hall) in Bhopal.
The programme will provide homes for the families that weren’t able to take use of housing amenities in other housing plans. The application period for the programme is September 17–October 5.
Speaking on the occasion, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said, “After food and clothes, the biggest need is a house. It may not be a big bungalow, but there should be a house in which one can live with his family and call it his own house. Therefore, we have created Mukhyamantri Ladli Awas Yojana, so that those who do not have a house and are not eligible in any housing scheme can also get the benefit of a pucca house.”
These families will benefit from the programme even if their Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana-Rural applications were automatically denied on the Awas Plus app portal and the MIS portal of the Indian government. According to him, it will also help families who are not on the list of the Social, Economic, and Caste Census 2011 and Awas Plus and who have not benefited from any housing programme run by the Centre or the State.
“The scheme will include those families who do not have houses with pucca roofs or live in kutcha houses with less than two rooms, do not own a motorized four-wheeler or whose family members do not have any member in government service, monthly income should be ₹ 12,000 or less. Also, no member of the family should be an income tax payer and have 2.5 acres or less of irrigated land or less than 5 acres of non-irrigated agricultural land,” the chief minister added.
Further, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan stated that it was his aim for no family to reside in a dilapidated hut. A pucca house, no matter how little, should be built for them.
Applications for this programme will be filled out for free, and anyone who requests money or makes an error will not be exempt. According to him, the first year will see the construction of about three to four lakh dwellings, and subsequent years will see a similar amount of construction.
