Under the Pradhan Mantri Awaas Yojana-Gramin (PMAY-G) in the financial years 2020-21 and 2021-22, total 2.28 crore houses have been sanctioned to the beneficiaries, out of which 1.75 crore houses have been completed as on 09 March, 2022.
The PMAY-G guidelines provides for construction of house within 12 months from the date of sanctioning the same to the beneficiary. The assistance is released to the beneficiary in a minimum of 3 instalments linked to various stages of completion like at the time of sanction, foundation, plinth, windowsill, lintel, roof etc. Since the figures of house sanction and completion are dynamic and there is a gap of 12 months between sanction of house till its completion, therefore, there would always be some gap between the figures of houses sanctioned and houses built during the implementation of the scheme.
The information was given by the Union Minister of State for Rural Development Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti in a written reply in Rajya Sabha on March 16.
