Rajiv Gandhi Awas Yojna (Housing Scheme 2014)
Soon after the Lok Sabha elections get over, the 65 identified cities Municipal Corporation will be floating e-tenders for conducting a survey of slums in the city through a private agency as part of the central government’s Rajiv Awas Yojana (RAY) housing scheme.
The UPA government on Thursday unveiled its plan for introducing Rajiv Awas Yojana for slum dwellers under JNNURM on the lines of Indira Awas Yojana for rural poor. Application form for Rajiv Gandhi Awas yojna will be available soon.
“The scheme for affordable housing through partnership and the scheme for interest subsidy for urban housing would be dovetailed into the Rajiv Awas Yojana which would extend support under JNNURM to states that are willing to assign property rights to people living in slum areas,” President Pratibha Patil said while addressing Parliament.
“My government’s effort would be to create a slum free India in five years through Rajiv Awas Yojana,” she said.
