Under the Bhim Rao Ambedkar Housing Scheme in the rural areas of the state, one percent of the widows could not be accommodated in two years. According to statistics, widows were given 11,000 housing under this scheme throughout the state. But in just two years, only 69 houses could be made for them. The progress of the scheme is only 0.62 percent.
The status of acceptance of accommodation is also not good. So far only 36.36 percent of the houses have been approved. In this way only 4000 out of 11000 houses can be sanctioned. Widows are being searched all over the state for the construction of remaining houses.
Every district’s progress is bad
According to the information, the progress of every district is poor in completing this scheme. In such a situation, the reason behind staying behind the scheme is being considered as the sluggishness of the districts. It was also found in the review that marking widows at the district level is not working properly. Nor is it possible to decide which widows are in dire need of accommodation.
CM launched the plan in 2016
Under the Bhim Rao Ambedkar Housing Scheme, housing for widows is available in the collective rural areas. Chief Minister Raghuvar Das started this scheme in June 2016. Several provisions have been made to make the scheme beneficial. If the widow has already got accommodation under any other scheme, then she will not be able to take advantage of it. By deciding the plan, all the districts were asked to identify the needy widows who have no accommodation. Efforts are being made to mark widows on the basis of socio-economic census.
