MA&UD Minister KTR held a high level review meeting on the double-bedroom dignity housing programme in Hyderabad.

The review was held at the Secretariat and was attended by Ministers Talasani Srinivas Yadav, Sabita Indra Reddy, Mahmood Ali and Mallareddy. City MLAs, MLCs and the Collectors of Hyderabad, Ranga Reddy and Medchal were also present.

During the meeting, KTR said that about 11,700 double-bedroom houses were successfully allocated in the first phase, and the Government is gearing up to distribute 13,300 more dignity houses from September 21.

KTR said that Telangana takes pride in the double-bedroom housing scheme that is unparalleled across the country. He added that the Telangana Government’s initiative to construct a double-bedroom house covering 560 square feet is unmatched by any other state.

He said that this was a magnanimous move as the Government of Telangana is committed to providing double-bedroom dignity houses to the poor. Each house worth about Rs 50 lakh is allotted free of cost to the underprivileged in Hyderabad.

KTR said that the total cost of the one lakh double-bedroom house units being constructed in Hyderabad was Rs 9,100 crore but its market value was more than Rs 50,000 crore. He added that the Telangana government is giving the houses free of cost to the underprivileged.

He also applauded GHMC officials for their commitment to this ambitious project.

KTR said these houses were being allocated to the beneficiaries who are deserving and officials are maintaining complete transparency. Neither MLAs nor public representatives have a say in the process which involves computer-based draws executed transparently in the presence of the media.

He also issued a stern warning against any possible irregularities emphasizing that accountability lies with the concerned authorities.

The much-awaited Gruhalakshmi scheme is set to be introduced soon. In a significant move, based on suggestions from Ministers, potential changes to the scheme for the GHMC area are under consideration by the Chief Minister.

KTR said that the government will soon release detailed guidelines about notary properties in the city.

The minister said that the process of regularization of house plots under GO: 58 and 59 had brought relief to people in the city. He added that the government was gearing up to clear encroachments on the bank of the Musi River and also allocate the poor families living in these areas double-bedroom houses.

KTR said that the welfare schemes introduced by the Government like allotment of double-bedroom houses, regularization of plots and notary assets have benefited about 15,000 to 20,000 people in every Assembly constituency.
