VIJAYAWADA: Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy would launch distribution of house site titles in Amaravati on Friday to nearly 51,000 poor people under the YSRC government’s flagship Navaratnalu Pedalandariki Illu programme.
The YSRC government prepared house sites in 25 layouts in various villages in the R5 Zone there and these house sites were allotted to the beneficiaries of Guntur and NTR districts.
The Chief Minister will depart at 9.50 am from his house at Tadepalli by road and reach Venkatapalem at 10 am, visit the stalls, photo gallery and AV of layouts and take photos with the beneficiaries. He would distribute house site titles to the beneficiaries, interact with them and address the public meeting.
This is the first public programme of Jagan Mohan Reddy in Amaravati ever since he became CM four years ago.
The distribution of house site pattas and houses to the poor in the CRDA area succeeded after the Jagan Mohan Reddy-led government overcame legal and other obstacles. A fight is still on by sections of farmers with Telugu Desam support to thwart the government plan for the CRDA area.
Officials said the distribution of 50,793 house site pattas and houses to women beneficiaries in the CRDA region is a victory for the poor. The government is distributing 5,024 TIDCO houses to women beneficiaries today, which were constructed at a cost of Rs 443.71 crore in the CRDA region.
An official release said, "CM Jagan Mohan Reddy will formally launch the distribution of house site pattas to 50,793 women beneficiaries in 1,402 acres and 5,024 TIDCO houses in CRDA region that would be constructed at a cost of Rs 443.71 crore to the women beneficiaries."
"A total of 25 layouts have been prepared in the CRDA region with full infrastructure under Navaratnalu – Pedalandariki Illu, in which 11 layouts are for 23,762 women beneficiaries of Guntur district and 14 layouts for 27,031 women beneficiaries of NTR district."
As many as 80,000 boundary stones were erected and construction of the Internal Transport System with gravel for 95.16km completed in 25 layouts.
Besides providing house site pattas in the CRDA region, the state government is also providing YSR-Jagananna Colonies for the poor at a cost of almost Rs 2,000 crore, which included Rs 1,280 crore for house construction and Rs 700 crore for infrastructure.
Distribution of free house site pattas and houses in the name of women beneficiaries is aimed to empower women. Under this, so far, the government distributed 30.60 lakh house site pattas across the state and is constructing over 21 lakh houses.
Distribution of 300 sq.ft TIDCO houses to 1,43,600 beneficiaries across the state for a token payment of Rs 1 per family, with full rights, is benefitting women beneficiaries across the state at an expenditure of Rs 9,406 crore.
By contrast, under the previous TD government, poor women beneficiaries had to pay Rs 7.20 lakh as principal and interest for the same house, the official release said.
