Rajasthan govt plans to hike price of affordable houses under Mukhyamantri Jan Awas Yojana
The Rajasthan state government is in plans to raise the rates of affordable houses provided under the chief minister’s ambitious Mukhyamantri Jan Awas Yojana. A proposal to increase the cost of low income group (LIG) and economic weaker section (EWS) houses will be tabled in the empowered committee meeting on Monday. The meeting will be chaired by urban development and housing (UDH) minister Srichand Kriplani.
At present, the LIG and EWS houses constructed on government land by private developers are sold at a fixed rate of Rs 1,250 per sq feet. The Urban Improvement Trust (UIT), development authorities and local bodies provide Rs 1,000 per square feet to the developers for construction of these houses.
