Amaravati: Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu directed the housing officials to take up construction of NTR Nagars in all the towns and cities across the state on a war footing. Taking part in a tele-conference on urban housing with officials and people’s representatives from his Undavalli residence on Thursday, the Chief Minister expressed his desire that the housing for poor scheme, which had been taken up by the state government should become a model for the entire country.

Highlights:

  • CM tells officials that he will inspect works in every six months
  • Says he will take part in workshops to be conducted for beneficiaries on housing
  • Officials told to complete the category-wise identification of beneficiaries within three days and beneficiary should be given choice of selecting which of the three models of houses he wants

He said that the houses for poor should be constructed on par with the houses of wealthy people with all the basic amenities. Observing that having own house is not only an asset but also a sentiment for the people, he said the poor people should feel happy and proud while living in their own houses.

The Chief Minister warned the officials that he would inspect the progress of urban housing projects once in every month. While suggesting to conduct workshops for the beneficiaries in municipal areas to create awareness among them, Naidu said that he would also participate in them. He directed the officials to complete the category-wise identification of beneficiaries within three days and suggested that the beneficiary himself can select one out of the of three models.

Asserting that the government housing project should compete with private developers, the Chief Minister disclosed that the government would bear half of the costs for the construction of G+7 storeyed buildings. People are ready to bear half the amount if they feel satisfied over the construction of the houses, he opined.

“We are providing Rs 3 lakh subsidy for each house. The government itself is providing infrastructure like water, roads, electricity, greenery and also the land. The beneficiaries should avail of this opportunity,” Naidu asked.

Recalling that the government had provided economic activities at Jakkampudi near Vijayawada where 30,000 houses were constructed, Naidu said that parks, community hall, health centre, skill development centre and other social infrastructure was also created for the beneficiaries.

Asserting that the people would be benefited if the housing colony was developed like a township, he said the housing colony constructed at Raptadu in Anantapur district should become an exemplary for other towns.

Referring to Nandyal Assembly constituency of Kurnool district, where the bypoll is scheduled, the Chief Minister said that the government was constructing permanent houses to poor people at a cost of Rs 800 crore. “We have allotted 120 acre at three places in Nandyal town, where the value of the land itself is more than Rs 250 crore.

The subsidy will be Rs 400 crore. The government will provide roads, drinking water, power, parks and other infrastructure at a cost of above Rs 150 crore. Similarly, NTR Nagars should be developed in all the towns across the state,” he said.
Urban housing minister P Narayana, marketing minister C Adinarayana Reddy, district collectors, MLAs, Municipal chair persons and other officials were present.
