Dated on: Tuesday 23rd May 2017

As per officials, so far the proposal for construction of 18.76 lakhs houses have been sanctioned, and funding for construction of 13.06 lakh houses has been issued. The delay in land acquisition is the prime reason behind the slow implementation of the government's flagship scheme PMAY (Urban). In fact, due to delay in land acquisition, only 1.49 lakh houses have been completed under PMAY (Urban) in 2016-17.
