CHENNAI: Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa on Friday announced that the government headed by her had taken a policy decision to provide housing facilities for all uniformed services personnel in the State, numbering 1,12,363. 
She said already housing facility had been provided to 50,424 personnel and residential buildings were being constructed for 7,526 more personnel. Speaking after launching the Own Your House Scheme for the uniformed services personnel by laying the foundation for 2,673 multi-storey apartments in the first phase at Melakottaiyur in Kancheepuram, the CM recalled that ex-Chief Minister MG Ramachandran felt the need for providing housing facilities to the uniformed services personnel and formed the Tamil Nadu Police Housing Corporation in 1981.  Later, after the demise of MGR, the Corporation was wound up.  However, after she assumed the office of the CM in 1991, she had revived it, Jayalalithaa said.
On the occasion, the CM issued allotment orders to 36 persons and also distributed scholarships for  higher education to top ranking students from police families.
Hailing the role of the police in maintaining law and order in the State, she said the police were working efficiently round-the-clock with the sole aim of maintaining peace in the  State, without taking care of their personal lives. However, in reality, the service of the police personnel remained a ‘thankless job’.  For example, if the police retrieved grabbed land from encroachers, the land owner hails the police, while the land grabber accuses the department of foisting cases against him. 
Detailing the various measures being taken by her government to upgrade the police force, the CM said the Police Housing Corporation would complete the job of providing housing facilities without any motive for making profit.
Chief Secretary Debendranath Sarangi said the Chief Minister had announced that 36,000 houses would be built under the scheme for the Uniformed Services personnel and 10 acres of land would be allocated in each district.
