Housing Scheme : 4 lakh to get Rs 3 lakh each for 2BHK house construction under ‘Gruha Lakshmi

With hardly nine months left for the State to go to Assembly polls, the State Cabinet, which met here on Thursday, announced several sops to weaker sections, tribals and SCs.The Cabinet decided to give Rs 3 lakh grant to each of the 4 lakh beneficiaries for constructing 2BHK houses.

Each guest house will be constructed at an estimated cost of Rs 25 crore each. A total Rs 50 crore was sanctioned by the Cabinet for the two proposed guest houses. If the government land was not available in Kashi, then the government would acquire private land and construct a guest house there.
