Five crore housing units to be constructed under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana. On Sunday, the Prime Minster Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone of housing projects under PM Awas Yojana in Naya Raipur.
On this matter, he said that the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana would provide benefits to those who cannot afford a house themselves. Years after Independence, there are still five crore families in the country who don’t have a house for themselves. The scheme is a way to fulfill the dream of poor of buying a house.
Further he quoted that two crore of them are in the cities and three crore of them are in the villages. Every Indian should think what kind of India they want in 2022, when India will celebrate 75 years of Independence. According to his statement this is the step towards fulfilment of the vision of Housing for All by 2022.
Besides this he also stressed on the need for skill development and asked the youth to be job creators. The initiative will create a lot of jobs as sale of building materials like cement, bricks and others will increase, he added.
“Our youth must have skills and must be job creators. Skill development brings so many opportunities for the youth. ‘Mudra Yojana’ is creating new entrepreneurs and helping existing ones grow,” he said.
Mr. Modi said for economic progress, there is the private and public sector, “but the third and crucial one that I am attaching importance to is personal sector, where every person becomes an entrepreneur.”
