Harness the opportunities provided by the upgradation of infrastructure and housing, for its job generating potential

Inadequate Progress

BJP government continued Modified Industrial Infrastructure Upgradation Scheme (MIIUS) under 12th year plan. Under this Scheme, projects have been undertaken to upgrade infrastructure in existing Industrial Parks/ Estates/ Areas. This scheme was allocated Rs. 1030 crores & the Central assistance of Rs. 513 crores has been approved under 12th year plan as of March, 2017 as compared to allocated Rs. 1050 crores & the central assistance of Rs. 378 crores under 11th year plan.

BJP government launched  “Housing for all by 2022” scheme under  Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) to boost affordable housing & creating job potential through it.  While the target has been to construct 2 crore houses by 2022, a total of 6716 houses have been built as of December, 2016.

Since there hasn’t been a sufficient increase in budget allocation & in terms of providing houses, government has not done well. Hence, the progress has been classified as inadequate.
