Mysuru: The  Kodagu administration, which has identified land to build houses for 840 people, who lost their homes in the district's floods and landslides in August this year, is getting ready to form layouts on it with all basic amenities including roads, electricity and water connection for their benefit.

According to Kodagu additional special deputy commissioner, M K Jagadish,  a  Rs 31.63 crore proposal has been sent  to the state government to form the layouts with 373 sites in five places to begin with. Experts of the Geological Survey of India have already assessed the land identified.

 

While three private companies have come forward with model houses, the state government has not yet chosen one or the company for building them. “Chief Minister  H D Kumarswamy has suggested we build two bedroom houses,” the officer added. 

The state government, which has decided to give Rs 50,000 to each displaced family until the houses are built for them, has released Rs 6 crore towards this and the process of distribution was underway, the officer said.

While as many as 524 people have lost their houses in Madikeri taluk, 205 have been made homeless in Madikeri town, 88  in Somwarpet taluk, and 23  in Kushalnagar town. Of them 98 have decided to build houses on their own land. The land identified by the government has already been levelled, and  30  x 40 sites will be marked on it from November 2.

While most victims of Kodagu’s rains and floods have returned home, 683 still remain at seven relief camps in the district.
