ANSWER
MINISTER OF RURAL DEVELOPMENT
(SHRI NARENDRA SINGH TOMAR)

(a) to (c): To achieve the objective of “Housing for All” by 2022, in rural areas of the country, the Government has re-structured the erstwhile rural housing scheme Indira Awaas Yojana (IAY) into Pradhan Mantri Awaas Yojana- Gramin (PMAY-G). PMAY-G is being implemented by the Ministry of Rural Development w.e.f. 1st April 2016. In urban areas of the country, Pradhan Mantri Awaas Yojana-Urban (PMAY-U) is being implemented by the Ministry of Housing & Urban Affairs w.e.f. 25.06.2015.

PMAY-G aims to provide a pucca house with basic amenities to all houseless households and households living in kutcha and dilapidated house in rural areas by 2022. To achieve the objective of “Housing for All”, 2.95 crore houses are targeted for construction under PMAY-G by the year 2021-22 in two phases- 1.00 crore houses in 3 years i.e. 2016-17 to 2018-19 in first phase and 1.95 crore houses in 3 years i.e. 2019-20 to 2021-22 in 2nd phase.

As on 27th June 2019, as per the data uploaded by the States / UTs on MIS-AwaasSoft, the number of houses sanctioned to the beneficiaries for construction under PMAY-G is 1,00,93,550 out of which 81,45,763 houses have been completed.

Ministry of Housing & Urban Affairs is implementing the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Urban)[PMAY(U)] since 25.06.2015 for providing assistance to States/Union Territories (UTs) for addressing the housing requirement for the people belonging to Economically Weaker Sections (EWS), Lower Income Group (LIG) and Middle Income Group (MIG) categories in the urban areas through following four verticals:

(i) “In-situ” Slum Redevelopment using land as resource (ISSR)

(ii) Credit Linked Subsidy Scheme (CLSS)

(iii) Affordable Housing in Partnership (AHP)

(iv) Beneficiary-led individual house construction or enhancement (BLC)

A total of 81,03,196 houses have been sanctioned and 23,85,118 houses have been completed under PMAY-U during 2015-16 to 2018-19.
