The administration of Jammu and Kashmir denied the claims made by the previous chief minister Mehbooba Mufti relating to the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) initiative.
The federal government of Jammu and Kashmir firmly asserted that land allocation below this system is strictly restricted to residents and doesn’t prolong to outsiders in any type.
The claims made by Peoples Democratic Occasion (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti to relocate outsiders below the guise of land to the landless program have been deemed “factually incorrect” by the federal government.
In a earlier press convention, Mufti claimed that Lieutenant-Governor Manoj Sinha’s current promise to supply land to those that are homeless below the PM Awas Yojana could also be an try to change Jammu and Kashmir’s inhabitants make-up.
I consider the federal government is making an attempt to vary Jammu and Kashmir’s demographic make-up by bringing slums and poverty into the realm below the guise of homes for the homeless, the PDP chief had claimed.
The J-Ok authorities said in an official assertion that the data cited by Mehbooba Mufti pertains to housing and concrete affairs, whereas the PMAY G program is dealt with by the Ministry of Rural Improvement for J-Ok’s rural areas.
PMAY: Housing Progress and Beneficiary Verification
In response to the report, the PMAY (Grameen) section 1 started on April 1, 2016, and through that point 257,349 houseless instances have been present in 3-Ok based mostly on SECC information from 2011.
Gram Sabhas verified them, 136,152 instances have been authorised for J-Ok as a part of the Prime Minister’s overarching dedication to “Housing for all” by 2022.
The Awaas+ survey was carried out between January 2018 and March 2019 by the federal government to seek out beneficiaries who believed the SECC had uncared for them in 2011.
The Authorities of India presents a per unit support of 1.30 lakhs for every home below this system. In response to the federal government, the minimal dimension of the required dwelling is 1 marla.
The assertion additional said that between January 2018 and March 2019, the federal government undertook the Awaas+ survey to seek out beneficiaries who claimed to have been overlooked of the SECC for 2011.
To fill within the gaps between the general intention and the listing of certified beneficiaries offered by the SECC Everlasting Wait Record (PWL), information acquired by means of Awaas+ was utilized.
A survey accomplished in 2018–19 throughout India revealed 2.65 lakh instances of homelessness in J-Ok, and PMAY Section-II (AWAS Plus) Grameen formally started in 2019 on the idea of this information. J-Ok, however, was given a goal of simply 63,426 houses.
These residences acquired approval in 2022. On March 31, 2024, the present section of the system will come to an finish.
As a particular dispensation, 199,550 extra PMAY AWAS PLUS dwellings have been authorised on Could 30, 2023, to safe housing for all 2.65 lakh homeless people who participated within the PWL 2019.
As well as, the survey adheres to express guidelines, bearing in mind all homeless folks in addition to these residing in zero, one, or two-room kachha dwellings, and prioritizing in accordance with the priorities specified within the plan pointers.
Landless People Excluded from PMAY
The federal government additional said that even when an individual is on the Everlasting Ready Record, they can’t be granted a home if they’re homeless, do not need clear land titles, don’t personal any land, or personal land the place building is prohibited.
In response to the J-Ok administration, out of 199,550 instances, 2,711 people have been discovered to be residing on State land, Forest land, Rakhs, Farms land, or land allotted for agricultural functions close to Dachigam Park the place building is prohibited.
The federal government makes it clear that it can not approve the acquisition of a home by individuals who don’t personal the property.
So as to assure everybody has a spot to dwell, the federal government has chosen to allot these 2,711 situations 5 marlas of land to allow them to have houses.
Mehbooba Mufti’s declare that greater than 2 lakh individuals acquired land allocations is due to this fact unfaithful, and all of her assertions present a lack of understanding of the PMAY program and the Income guidelines of J-Ok, which permit land allocation to landless folks for residential use.
No new legal guidelines have been handed, and no outsiders are receiving land allocations,” it continued.
These 2,711 situations are part of the 2018–19 PWL for homeless folks in J–Ok who have been denied housing both as a result of they lacked land or as a result of the land they did possess fell below the state, forest, or different classes the place growth is prohibited.
