Jaipur Development Authority has taken a decision to help EWS and LIG categories for constructing houses. After not achieving the targets of constructing affordable houses under Mukhya Mantri Jan Awas Yojana, JDA has decided to write letters to the allottees of Economic Weaker Section (EWS) and Lower Income Group (LIG) category to construct houses in JDA residential colonies.
According to the information received from the source, in past 15 years, JDA had developed residential plots for EWS & LIG categories in around 50 housing schemes. The JDA will also assist EWS and LIG plot owners to seek loan from banks and provide subsidy on interest amount of loan up to Rs 1.5 lakh.
JDA Official informed that the authority will soon invite online and offline applications and the authority will soon organise the camps for the same.
Under Mukhya Mantri Jan Awas Yojana scheme, the Centre is providing subsidy of Rs 1.5 lakh for construction of houses to EWS and LIG category up to the plot size of 75 square meter.
Through the letter, JDA will inform the owners about the perks provided by the Centre.
Towards the achievement of the target, the authority recently planned to develop the special kind of the scheme for LIG and EWS. However, it was shelved as only 35 applicants were qualifying to purchase the plot in this category.
“For the scheme, we have received 700 applications. But, most of the applicants were from other cities of the state. Also applicants already had plots in RHB and JDA schemes,” said official.
