MP CM, Chouhan said the government’s target is to ensure each eligible beneficiary owns a ‘pucca’ house in the state and make the lives of citizens more comfortable.
The state government had earlier approved the construction of 8, 68,000 houses and 4, 72,000 beneficiaries out of these have already received their house ownership. The remaining houses are being constructed on a fast pace. He also assured that the benefit of the PMAY will soon be extended to those who have yet not received it.
During the COVID-19 period, more than 4.4 lakh houses were built, providing relief to the beneficiaries, an official said.
