LIFE mission of Government of Kerala is aimed at providing house to all houseless families in the state. The mission envisages award of financial assistance (3.5 lakhs for General, 4.0 lakhs for SC/Fishermen and actual cost for ST families) to those houseless families who are in possession of land. For those who are landless (and houseless) mission will construct flats/ apartments and will handover keys to the beneficiaries.
