‘Land’ and ‘Colonization’ are State subjects. Schemes related to housing in their respective areas are implemented by States/Union Territories (UTs). However, Government of India is supplementing the efforts of States/ UTs by providing Central assistance under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana-Urban (PMAY-U) since June, 2015 to provide pucca house with basic civic amenities to all eligible urban beneficiaries through four verticals namely (i) Beneficiary-led individual house construction or enhancement (BLC) (ii) Affordable Housing in Partnership (AHP) (iii) Credit-Linked Subsidy Scheme (CLSS) and (iv) “In-Situ” Slum Redevelopment (ISSR).

Identification of eligible beneficiaries and implementation of projects under PMAY-U is the responsibility of State/ UT Governments concerned. All State/ UT Governments prepare project proposals as per demand in consonance with scheme guidelines of PMAY-U. 

Based on the project proposals submitted by States/ UTs, a total of 2,10,552 houses have been sanctioned for eligible beneficiaries under ISSR vertical of PMAY-U as on 20.03.2023.

Under PMAY-U, more than 1.20 crore houses have been sanctioned as on 20.03.2023. Of the sanctioned houses, 109.40 lakh have been grounded for construction; of which 72.72 lakh are completed/ delivered to beneficiaries. Of the 72.72 lakh completed houses as on 20.03.2023, 52.78 lakh houses have been sanctioned to Economically Weaker Section (EWS) beneficiaries.

This information was given by the Minister of State for Housing & Urban Affairs, Shri Kaushal Kishore, in a written reply in the Lok Sabha today.
