The project for issuing Houses for those who have atleast one cent of land gets state wide approval in 34 urban local bodies. Therefore everyone who own plots in urban local bodies will get houses of their own. The programme is implemented by PMAY(U) - Pradhan Manthri Awas Yojana (Urban) Programme under Central- State Ministries working with the mission of achieving 'Housing for All'. The suggestion regarding this was put forward by the State Level Sanctioning and Monitoring Committee chaired by Dr K. M. Abraham, Chief Secretary, Government of Kerala. The same has been already put forward by the State Level Advisory Committee presided by Shri T.K Jose IAS, Principal Secretary, Local Self Government Department, Government of Kerala. The 34 ULBs identified the homeless in their places who had atleast one cent of land and proposed projects for them and secured approval for the same. Approval for building 21,199 houses has been issued. Therefore approval has been secured for building a total of 58,117 houses in the state. Kudumbashree is the nodal agency of PMAY in Kerala.
Anthoor, Chalakkudy, Chavakkad, Chengannur, Cherpulassery, Chittor- Thathamangalam, Erattupetta, Ettumanoor, Guruvayoor, Irinjalakuda, Kalamassery, Karunagappally, Kattapana, Kodungaloor, Koothuparamb, Kothamangalam, Kottarakkara, Mavelikkara, Moovattupuzha, Ottpalam, Pala, Panoor, Parappanangadi, Pattambi, Perumbavoor, Punalur, Shornur, South paravur, Thalassery, Thiruvalla, Thodupuzha, Vaikom, Valanchery and Varkala are the urban local bodies who submitted the plans and secured state wide approval for the same. It has been suggested to submit a detailed list of the homeless in 93 urban local bodies will be submitted before 9 November 2017. When 13,000 houses in these ULBs get approval, houses will be issued for those who have atleast one cent of land. The land less people in the urban areas had also been identified. By the next financial year, houses will be allotted to them as well. Therefore, no one would be left in Urban areas as homeless.
The programme allows 3 lakh rupees for building Houses. One and half lakh rupees will be met from the Central Government fund. The rest will be met from the State Government and Local bodies fund. The construction of 229 houses had been finished so far. Construction of 12,168 houses has been progressing. The programme is framed, including the factors such as Colony development, credit linked subsidy, affordable housing scheme and personal Construction.As per this years programme, 30,000 houses will be finished. Kudumbashree aims to get approval for all plans for building houses this year itself. Therefore Houses for all who owns atleast one cent of land would be a reality then.
