CHANDIGARH: To provide affordable housing facilities to rural poor, Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Saturday launched an ambitious housing scheme -- Priyadarshani Awaas Yojana -- to construct two lakh houses at a cost of Rs 1,350 crore. Hooda launched the state-level scheme at a function in Karnal while his son and Rohtak MP Deepender Singh Hooda distributed letters to beneficiaries of the yojna at a function in Jhajjar.

The state government in its budget on March 1 had announced the housing scheme. Launching the scheme, the chief minister transferred the first instalment of Rs 25,000 per beneficiary to the bank accounts of 30 people.

Each beneficiary would be given financial assistance of Rs 90,100 in three instalments by the state government as grant for construction of a new house. The first instalment of Rs 25,000 would be released at the time of sanction, second instalment of Rs 35,000 after completion of construction up to roof level and the final instalment of Rs 21,000 would be released on fixing of doors and windows. This includes Rs 9,100 to each beneficiary for construction of toilets. The chief minister said the state government has also prepared a scheme under which if any beneficiary intends to construct another room or so, he could obtain a loan of up to Rs 1 lakh from Punjab National Bank.

Hooda said the state government would soon come up with a similar scheme for urban areas so that the poor living in such areas could also construct "pucca" houses.
