The State government will launch the Indiramma Housing Scheme from March 11 with the first phase to see 3,500 houses being approved in each Assembly constituency.

A decision to this effect was taken by Chief Minister A Revanth Reddy during a meeting with Revenue Minister Ponguleti Srinivas Reddy and other senior officials here on Saturday.

The Chief Minister directed officials to ensure that poor and eligible people, who do not own a house, get benefited under the scheme. Modalities should be prepared accordingly and priority should be given to the eligible people who registered their names during the Praja Palana programme, he said.

Under the Indiramma Housing Scheme, those who own a plot of land will be given Rs.5 lakh for building a new house in the plot. Homeless poor will be

given Rs.5 lakh along with a house plot.

The Chief Minister instructed the officials to prepare guidelines for releasing funds at different stages of construction. Strict guidelines should be prepared to prevent any misuse of funds to be received by the beneficiaries under the scheme, he said.

Officials were directed to prepare different types of house models and designs, which would be useful for those, who build a house. Though, beneficiaries were free to construct the houses as per their aspirations and requirements, officials were asked to ensure that houses were equipped with a kitchen and toilet.

Responsibility of monitoring the house constructions should be entrusted to engineering departments in different departments under the respective District Collectors’ limits, he added.
