Dehradun civic body denied second installment under housing scheme for bad performance
Dehradun municipal corporation (DMC) has emerged as one of the worst performers among 19 urban local bodies (ULBs) in the state where houses were to be made for BPL families under the housing for all scheme. Owing to this it did not receive the money for the second installment under the scheme.
As reported by TOI earlier, DMC has provided the financial assistance to only 12 households and the full assistance of Rs 2 lakh has been provided to just two families while 51 households were identified to be given the assistance. In fact, they utilized just Rs 2.8 lakh of the total Rs 40 lakh released to it in the first installment. This led to urban development directorate (UDD) not releasing the second installment to the DehradunMunicipal Corporation.
