PM Awas Yojana Uttar Pradesh – 11,286 Houses to be Constructed in 32 Cities
After the government changes in UP, the attempt to implement the housing for all (urban mission) scheme under ‘PM Awas Yojana Uttar Pradesh’ has accelerated. In the first phase, the central government has approved the DPR that was prepared to construct 11,286 houses in 32 cities.

Around Rs. 384.59 crore will be spent on the construction of these houses. The DPR, prepared by the State Urban Development Agency (SUDA), was sent to the Center after approval from the State Steering Committee, headed by Chief Secretary, about two months ago.
In fact, the Center implemented this plan in 2015 but the then Akhilesh government did not give it a special consideration. Therefore, in comparison to the other states, UP lagged behind in starting this scheme.
By looking at the motive of the SP government, the government staff was not showing any interest in starting it. But in 2016, when the rumor of the assembly elections began and the statement of the government continued to be consistent in this, the state government started the scheme after a delay of nearly a year but in the first phase, DPR was made to build only 11 thousand houses.
