Workshop For TMC Corporators & Administrative Department On PMAY
Maharashtra Housing Department and Thane Municipal Corporation organised a workshop for Corporators, administrative department of TMC for creating awareness about Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) at Narendra Ballal Sabhgruha in Thane.
The objective of this seminar was to create awareness among corporators about the basic parameters of category 4 of Time Model of the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana to make amendments in the existing housing schemes.
Persons earning annual income below 3 lakh per annum are eligible for availing benefits of this scheme. However, applicants should fulfil certain conditions and not own a house. The criteria 2 comprises construction expansion, maintenance including the restructuring of houses. People residing in slums can avail the benefit of this scheme.
As per the survey conducted by a technical group of the Government of India (2012-2017) 80 per cent of people are residing in heavily congested areas. TMC Mayor said earlier many schemes were announced by the government but the common man was unaware about it. Under this scheme, we need to offer benefits to taxpayers who are residing in slums for more than 80-90 years. Even though they pay the tax they don’t have ownership of homes. TMC is taking initiative and we are keen to implement this scheme for the welfare of the common man.
Under this scheme, beneficiaries will get 2.5 lakhs as the subsidy for providing financial assistance for renewal of existing homes.
An MHADA official said we are implementing this scheme as per the government guidelines and it is running in 382 cities. Applications for 5 lakhs homes are already passed under this scheme. Beneficiaries can avail subsidy after their applications are screened by agencies and MHADA.
The government is running this scheme in association with KPMG which is international research advisory agency providing consultation to the government for effective implementation of the scheme.
