Patna: Union minister of state for rural development Upendra Kushwaha today announced the hike of at least Rs 45,000 as financial assistance to the beneficiaries for constructing houses under Indira Awas Yojana (IAY).

As per the proposal sent to the finance ministry for its approval, each Indira Awas beneficiary would now get Rs 1.15 lakh as unit cost against Rs 70,000 while beneficiaries residing in hilly or Maoist-hit districts or difficult areas would get Rs 1.25 lakh per unit cost against Rs 75,000.

“The rural development ministry has sent its proposal to the finance ministry for effecting a major hike in the quantum of financial assistance for constructing houses under the IAY for BPL families. The ministry is expected to give its nod very soon,” Kushwaha told reporters here.

It has been found that the amount available (Rs 70,000 per unit cost) for constructing houses under Indira Awas Yojana was insufficient and was quite difficult to construct houses in the prescribed limit, so the government decided to effect a hike in the amount, said Kushwaha who was accompanied by party spokesmen Abhayanand Suman and Rajesh Yadav at state guesthouse here.

But till the proposal is given nod, the ministry has decided to give Rs 15,000 to each beneficiary as labour cost, the minister said while adding that each beneficiary also gets Rs 10,000 for constructing toilet. The government has an ambitious target of constructing three crores dwellings in the country in next seven years at an estimated cost of Rs 2.50 lakh crore, he said.

Kushwaha, who is also the minister of state for the panchayati raj and drinking water and sanitation, said that Prime Minister has resolved to provide house for all in next seven years.
