AP CM YS Jagan Distributes House Site Pattas To Beneficiaries In Srikalahasti


CHITTOOR: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy on Monday unveiled the pylon for the YSR Jagananna Colony besides distributing house site pattas under ‘Pedalandariki Illu' scheme at Urandur in Srikalahasti of Chittoor district and tore into the Opposition for creating hurdles to the project at some places.

Addressing a public meeting, the Chief Minister stated that the government is handing over a plot worth of Rs 7 lakh free  of cost to the beneficiaries, with a sole intention to create an asset for the poor families.

In Chittoor district alone, in the first phase, 1,78,840 houses will be constructed, while 2.50 lakh house pattas will be distributed. He said that about 30.75 lakh beneficiaries have been identified across the State, of which 28.30 lakh houses will be constructed under YSR Jagananna layouts in two phases and another 2.62 lakh are of TIDCO flats.

While such a welfare activity is going on, the Opposition is deriving vicious pleasure by stalling the project through litigation and even filed PILs on the eve of launch and deprived many people including those of Pulivendula of getting the benefit. God will teach them a fitting lesson, he said.
Reiterating that the State is not constructing just houses for the poor, but is constructing towns for the future fulfilling all necessary requirements, the Chief Minister said that the government has been taking effective measures in empowering women and supporting them at all times. In the past 18 months,  Amma Vodi, Cheyuta, Vidya Deevena and Vasati Deevena have been rolled out by directly crediting the amount to mothers' bank  accounts.
 The State government had also made laws to provide 50 percent reservation  for women in nominated posts, nominated works, trust boards and market advisory boards.

The Chief Minister said that he had witnessed the plight of the homeless poor during his 3648 km padayatra, where a majority were seen living either in a kacha house or in rented spaces by spending almost 35 percent of their earnings on rents. He said that all these living conditions of the poor had driven him to take up this massive project, and thus promised to provide 25 lakh houses. But today, we are offering more than the promised number and are  providing 30,75,000 house sites for the poor. He also stated that the distribution of title deeds of the houses will be a continuous process and those who are eligible can still apply for houses and will be provided with a house site within 90 days.

Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy said that in the first phase 15.60 lakh houses will be constructed at a cost of Rs 28,000 Crore and the remaining 12.70 lakh houses will be taken up from next year. He assured to provide infrastructure including drinking water, drainage, electricity and set up parks, anganwadis, community halls, village clinics and RBKs depending on the layout area. Initially the government had decided to provide 224 sq.ft, later it was increased to 340 sq.ft. Although the State government wanted to handover registered pattas to the beneficiaries but due to the court cases, all the beneficiaries are being given D-form pattas, and once the legal cases are resolved, land deeds will be handed over, in the name of women beneficiaries.
