Ministry of Rural Development has informed that there is no provision for temporary accommodation under Pradhan Mantri Awaas Yojana-Gramin (PMAY-G).

In pursuance of the Government's vision of "Housing for All", Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA) is implementing Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana-Urban (PMAY-U) since 25.06.2015 for giving Central assistance to States/ Union Territories (UTs) for providing all-weather pucca houses to all eligible urban households including urban homeless persons. States/ UTs have under-taken demand survey under PMAY-U for assessing actual demand of housing. Based on the project proposals submitted by the States/ UTs as per their assessed demand of houses under PMAY-U, around 114 lakh houses have been sanctioned across the country. Against the total sanctioned houses 52.88 lakh have been completed/ delivered to beneficiaries and remaining are at various stages of construction/ grounding.

Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana-Urban

Construction of houses under PMAY-U involve investment of Rs. 7.52 lakh crore which includes Central assistance of Rs. 1.85 lakh crore. So far, Central assistance of Rs. 1.03 lakh crore has been released.

Under PMAY-G, the beneficiaries are provided unit assistance of Rs. 1.20 lakhs in plain areas and Rs. 1.30 lakhs in difficult areas, IAP districts and Hilly areas for construction of house.
