Government to set up unit for effective monitoring of PMAY-U
The government has proposed to set up a dedicated unit to effectively monitor the implementation of Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Urban), officials said on Wednesday.
According to a request for proposal (RFP) floated by the Union housing and urban affairs ministry on September 19, the Programme Management Unit will provide focused support for the PMAY (U) under ‘Housing for All by 2022 Mission’, a flagship programme of the Modi government.
“The ministry has invited proposals from experienced consulting firm/agency for providing manpower for establishment of Programme Management Unit for PMAY,” an official said.
The RFP stated that the participating firm’s average annual financial turnover of last three consecutive fiscal years must not be less than Rs 9 crore.
The ministry, which is mandated to implement the PMAY (Urban), said that interested agencies can submit their proposals by October 17. A pre-bid meeting is scheduled to be held on October 4.
