Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that the State Government has taken a historic decision and decided that such houses in which more than one family lives (family means husband, wife and children) and if they do not have any plot of land to live in then the Government will provide them free plots. This will also open the way for the construction of houses under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana and the benefits of other schemes will also be available.
Chouhan said that the one who has taken birth on this earth has the right that at least a piece of land should be in his name to live in, on which he could build a house and live with his family. This is a historic decision in favor of the poor. In a message issued to the media at his residence, Chouhan said that under the Mukhyamantri Awasiya Bhu-adhikar Yojna, the state government has issued guidelines for allotment of plots on Abadi (populated) land in rural areas.
The Chief Minister said that this scheme has been implemented with the objective of ensuring that every family has the right to a dignified life with minimum basic necessities. On getting the residential plot, it will help in getting loans from government schemes and banks. Mukhyamantri Awasiya Bhu-adhikar Yojna has been started by the State Government to provide residential plots to the eligible families on the Abadi land in each Gram Panchayat in the rural areas.
In the scheme, the District Collector has been empowered with respect to the availability of Abadi land. The maximum area of ??the plot for allotment will be 60 square meters. Family means husband and wife and their unmarried sons and daughters. Only those applicant families will be eligible to apply who are residents of the respective village. For getting residential plot, application has to be submitted online through SAARA portal.
The village wise list of eligible families under the scheme will be published for the purpose of inviting objections and suggestions from the concerned villagers, whose time period will not be less than ten days.
