GoI launched Pradhan Mantri Awaas Yojana (Gramin)

This project with a vision of ‘Housing for All’ in rural areas plans to provide an environmentally friendly, secure pucca (strong) house to every rural household by 2022.

# Target to complete 1 crore houses by March 2019.
# Minimum support of nearly 1.5 - 1.6 lakh INR to a household is available.
# An additional provision for bank loan up to 70000 INR.
# Selection of beneficiaries is based on data provided by Socio Economic Census 2011. This will be validated in Gram Sabha.
# Indented to provide skilling (45 day on site hands-on skill training) for 5 lakh Rural Masons by 2019.
# Allows over 200 different housing designs across the country.
# Large-scale use of local materials is envisaged.
# Each home is supposed to have cooking space, electricity provision, LPG, toilet and bathing area, drinking water etc. through convergence.
# Entire payments are through IT/DBT mode with Aadhaar linked Bank accounts

Recently Prime Minister saw over 40 building designs and distributed Sanction Certificates to a few beneficiaries from Agra. Hope that this program will provide a good house for those who otherwise can only dream about it.
