Housing is one of the most important aspects of one’s life. Having a roof over one’s head is one of the most basic needs. However, the ground reality happens to be that a house is something not everyone can afford, at least not right away.

In order to alleviate the situation for the poor in the state – who find it difficult even to put together two square meals a day – the Andhra Pradesh state government has initiated the NTR Housing scheme benefits.

About the Andhra Pradesh NTR Housing scheme

Under the implementation of the scheme, about 1 lakh beneficiaries would be an official handover of their houses on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti, on the 2nd of October. The state government aims to develop about 10 lakh houses for the rural populace with a total expenditure of ₹16,000 crores.

The houses constructed under the implementation of the NTR housing scheme are constructed in about 9,835 villages and in 884 wards.

Further updates on the NTR Housing scheme

Observing the problem-solving nature of the scheme in the rural areas, the Andhra government has taken the step further and extended the implementation of the scheme to urban areas, in collaboration with Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana – Urban.

Under this, a total of 1.93 lakh houses would be constructed for the poor in urban areas of the state out of which 41,000 would in fact be independent houses.

Summing it up

Housing can be quite a difficult task. But with due support and assistance, nothing is impossible. Housing is the first step to individual progress. Once a person has a roof over his or her head, things start looking up and up from there. This basic level of support can actually go a long way in helping the rural and urban poor aspire to work towards a better life, thereby contributing to the state’s overall development, and even adding to national upliftment on the whole.
