Ministry of Housing & Urban Poverty Alleviation has reform some guidelines to Deendayal Antyodaya Yojana –NULM for more benefits of urban poor

Ministry of Housing & Urban Poverty Alleviation has made substantial changes in the Guidelines for implementation of Deendayal Antyodaya Yojana- National Urban Livelihoods Mission to benefit more and more urban poor by relaxing the norms for implementation of the Mission. The National Governing Council of the Mission, an inter-ministerial body chaired by the Minister of Housing & Urban Poverty Alleviation Shri M.Venkaiah Naidu approved several changes in the operational guidelines of the Mission after detailed deliberations.

Banks have now been allowed to directly accept applications from the beneficiaries for extending subsidized loans for setting up individual and group enterprises under the Self-Employment Programme component of DAY-NULM dispensing with the need for sponsorship by concerned urban local bodies. One bank will be designated as the Nodal Agency for each State to coordinate with all other banks to increase banking linkages for loan support under this component.
