New Delhi :Land and colonization are State subjects. Therefore, schemes related to housing for people living in urban areas are being implemented by State/ Union Territories (UTs). However, the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs is supplementing the efforts of State/ UTs by providing Central Assistance under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana – Urban (PMAY-U) since 25.06.2015 for construction of houses for all eligible families/ beneficiaries.
State-wise number of slums as per 69th Round survey of National Sample Survey Office (NSSO) 2012 and the population of slum dwellers as per Census 2011 in the country is at Annexure-I.
Eligible beneficiaries can avail the benefit of PMAY-U through any one of the available four verticals i.e. Beneficiary-led Construction (BLC), Affordable House in Partnership (AHP), In-Situ Slum Redevelopment (ISSR) and Credit Linked Subsidy Scheme (CLSS) based on their preference. Data pertaining to number of slums demolished and the amount of compensation disbursed is not maintained by this Ministry. The State-wise number of houses sanctioned and funds disbursed during the last three years under PMAY-U are at Annexure-II.
