Maha achieves only 11.4% target under PMAY-Urban
The state has achieved 11.4% of its target since the launch of its affordable housing scheme under the Pradhan MantriAwasYojana (Urban) in 2015.
Only 2.17 lakh units have been constructed in the state against the target of 19 lakh affordable houses by 2020. This means more than 88% of the target is yet to be achieved. In 2018-19, the state government has constructed 1,892 units. In 2017-18 and 2016-17, it had built 55,695 and more than 1.6 lakh units respectively. The houses, meant for the economically weaker section, are constructed in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region, in the PMR region in Pune and Shrirampur.
“There was some delay in sanctioning of land last year. We will pick up the pace of construction now. We have recently launched a scheme at City and Industrial Development Corporation (CIDCO),” said housing officials, who plan to offer nearly 90,000 homes under the PMAY scheme.
