Chhattisgarh Endorsed Inhabitant Land Occupied By Families Eligible Under PMAY
The Chhattisgarh Cabinet endorsed the proposal that in the inhabitant land (Present/Secured) occupied by families eligible under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) as beneficiaries, they would be given beneficiaries certificate and assistance amount for construction of houses. The meeting was chaired by Chief Minister at his official residence.
Under Housing for All Mission 2022, the Prime Minister Housing Scheme was started in the year 2015 and in all 168 urban bodies of the State, the Mission work is being implemented.
There are many beneficiaries who are eligible for the scheme but are living on encroached government/civic body land and they do not have ownership validity certificate.
The Chief Minister on July 18, 2018, during the review of the scheme, had considered the problem and directed to provide an alternative certificate for the beneficiaries. Based on the certificate, the scheme benefits can be extended. Thus, after necessary modification, it has been cleared by the Cabinet.

A large category of farmers is involved in farming in river beds and river banks. Out of total 37.46 lakh farmer families, around 80 per cent are small and minor category farmers.
