In a Cabinet meeting on June 10, 2024, it was decided to extend assistance to an additional 3 crore rural and urban households to address the growing housing needs due to an increase in eligible families.

Since 2015-16, the Government of India has been implementing the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) to assist rural and urban households in constructing houses with essential amenities. Over the past decade, 4.21 crore houses have been completed under PMAY for poor families.

These houses come with basic amenities such as household toilets, LPG connections, electricity connections, and functional household tap connections, facilitated through collaboration with other Central and State Government schemes.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi highlighted that the decision to support the construction of 3 crore more houses under PMAY reflects the government’s dedication to meeting the nation’s housing needs and ensuring a better quality of life for all citizens.

Additionally, Prime Minister Modi authorized the release of the 17th installment of PM Kisan Nidhi, benefiting 9.3 crore farmers with a total distribution of around Rs 20,000 crores. He emphasized the government’s commitment to Kisan Kalyan, noting that the first file signed upon taking office was related to farmer welfare, and expressed a continued commitment to supporting farmers and the agriculture sector.
