Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on Saturday released the installments worth Rs 150 crore to the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY-Gramin) beneficiaries of Jammu and Kashmir.

The LG attended the valedictory session of Samagra Awaas-Convergence under PMAY-G at Srinagar and released the installments worth Rs 150 crore to the beneficiaries of the Union Territory.

Addressing the gathering, Sinha shared the reforms introduced by the Administration to improve the quality of life of the people of J&K.

Under the guidance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, we are dedicated to inclusive development and reaching the last mile, the Lt Governor said.

“My prime objective is to liberate marginalized sections of society from clutches of under-development and to ensure that every family enjoys benefits of peace and prosperity. With land to landless, we have made a commitment to ensure livelihood and build a brighter future for them,” he said.

Highlighting the progress registered under PMAY, the Lt Governor said, all 3.39 lakh eligible houses out of 3.42 lakh sanctioned to J&K under PMAY-G were approved. Of these 1.74 lakh houses were handed over to the beneficiaries. The construction work of the remaining houses will be completed by this financial year, Sinha added.

“We are determined to provide a roof over the heads of poor families and saturate benefits provided in convergence with schemes for better and decent living. We want to empower the last person in the queue and to make our villages self-sufficient to achieve the goal of Aatma-Nirbhar J&K,” the Lt Governor said.

He congratulated the PRI members, all stakeholder departments and the people of Kathua, Budgam, Kulgam and Ramban districts for achieving ODF plus and 100% model district status.

Sinha felicitated the best performing blocks under PMAY-G and the Districts with maximum convergence. He also handed over installment cheques to beneficiaries under PMAY-G.
