The Andhra Pradesh Government today decided to provide a lumpsum amount to Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes beneficiaries for construction of pending houses under INDIRAMMA programme.
Noting that construction of a large number of houses sanctioned to SCs and STs under three phases of the programme were pending due to non-clearance of loan applications by banks, the Chief Minister announced at the Collectors conference here that government would, on its own, mobilise the required amount and make it available to SC/ST beneficiaries for early completion of the houses.
Briefing newsmen on the deliberations, Revenue Minister D Prasada Rao said accordingly, the beneficiaries in rural areas would be provided Rs 20,000 each and those in urban areas Rs 30,000 for completion of construction of pending houses. The Chief Minister asked the the departments of Municipal Administration, Housing and Revenue to hold a joint meeting with District Collectors of Hyderabad and Rangareddy to resolve pending issues and ensure early handing over of houses constructed for the selected beneficiaries in the two districts, he said.
