Bangla Awas Yojana is an alternative to the Pradhan Mantri Gramin Awas Yojana 2021 – housing scheme in West Bengal state. The government will hand over these houses to the people on a specified date which is to be announced soon.

The decision to provide free homes to Sanatan Brahmin Priests under WB Bangla Awas Yojana 2021 was taken ahead of the assembly polls. The state govt had earlier provided land to the Sanatan Brahmin sect to set up an academy at Kolaghat. Many priests in this sect are financially weak. So the WB Govt has decided to help such Hindu priests by providing them with an allowance of ₹1,000 per month and also free housing under the state government’s housing scheme. The state government of West Bengal will also distribute sanction certificates to beneficiaries on “Banglar Awas Bitaran Divas”.
