To enhance its coverage under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY), the Housing ministry has amended the guidelines of the housing scheme.

According to the amended guidelines, areas falling within notified planning or development area under the jurisdiction of an industrial development authority or urban development authority or special area development authority or any such body under state legislation which is entrusted with the functions of urban planning and regulations shall also be included for coverage under PMAY (U).

The housing scheme is being implemented by Housing and Urban Affairs Ministry in urban areas under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Urban) and by Rural Development Ministry in rural areas under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Gramin).

“The beneficiaries in the permanent wait list of PMAY (G) will have the flexibility for opting for a house under PMAY (U) or PMAY (G),” it said.

Under this amendment the benefits of all existing and future rural schemes will not be denied to a beneficiary who would avail a house, it added.
