Manoj Sinha, the lieutenant governor of Jammu and Kashmir, stated on Saturday that no outsiders were receiving land under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna (PMAY) and that those who illegally grabbed state property should stop deceiving the public.

Speaking at a gathering in the Baramulla district area of north Kashmir, the LG said that many people had approached him claiming to be qualified for the PMAY but lacking land.

Therefore, after reviewing the situation, the administration decided to grant these people 5 malras of land under the PMAY programme so they could build their own homes. “For homeless families, 1,99500 dwellings have been approved thus far,” he said.

The number includes 2711 people without land in addition to 46000 SC and ST category families who were eligible for the programme, he said.(CNI)
