The scheme was launched in 2015 with the objective of providing a pucca house to all eligible beneficiaries of Urban India by 2022 with the vision of ‘Housing for All’. The Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Urban) visions housing for all in urban areas by providing pucca houses to all eligible beneficiaries by 2022.
The Mission provides Central Assistance to implementing agencies through States/Union Territories (UTs) and Central Nodal Agencies (CNAs) for providing houses to all eligible families/ beneficiaries against the validated demand for houses. The mission strategizes to achieve the motto “Housing for All” by 2022 through four verticals, i.e. Subsidy for Beneficiary-Led Individual House Construction or Enhancement (BLC/BLE), Credit Linked Subsidy Scheme (CLSS), Affordable Housing in Partnership (AHP) and “In-situ” Slum Redevelopment of existing slum dwellers using land as a resource through private participation (ISSR).
