Main objective of launching the scheme

By effective implementation of the scheme, the government is planning to deal with two major issues that are prevailing in the country. The issues are detailed as below.

  1. Due to the growing settlement of people in the slum area, the scheme would be helpful. In the slum area, even there is a lack of basic necessities like electricity, water, toilet facilities, and the like.
  2. After launching of the scheme, the lower income group of the society would get the inspiration of living in ‘pucca’ houses that would provide basic needs suchas toilets facilities, electricity and others.

However, after implementation of PM Modi 1 BHK House Rent Scheme, high buildings with 1 room flats will be constructed, and the poor families will be given the facilities to live in the flats on rent. For proper implementation of the scheme, labor cess capital would be used in the scheme as the initial source of funding. 

Details of scheme implementation

  • The central government is planning to run the scheme with the help of a voucher system. The value of the voucher will be given by the urban local bodies to the eligible families as per the rules of the scheme. The families have to produce the voucher at the time of opting for the rented houses.
  • The government is also planning to initiate direct voucher transfer in the above-said scheme. This shall help in easy implementation of the scheme that would, in turn, help the poor families.
  • According to the census report, near about 27.5% of urban dwellers were living in rented houses during 2011. Therefore, this scheme will help people who are living on rent.
