AP YSR Jagananna Colonies Scheme 2021 – Works at Housing Colonies Start | Land with Documents to Urban & Rural Beneficiaries

Owning a house is a basic fundamental right of every person. It falls under the prescribed essentials of Food, Clothing and Shelter. However, owning a house currently could seem like a steep climb; with soaring apartmental prices and shrinking spaces in cities, people barely have any place to build a house and call it their own. 

However, the government of Andhra Pradesh has realised this problem its citizens face and has decided to do something to alleviate the stresses of owning a house. To achieve better housing for people from the poorer sects of the society, the state government has launched the Andhra Pradesh YSR Jagananna Colonies scheme 2021. 

About the Andhra Pradesh YSR Jagananna colonies scheme 2021

The state government aims to offer affordable housing solutions to the poor in the state. This is to achieve the aim that no poor family will be left without a house in the state by the year 2023. 

The impact of the scheme is assumed to be huge, in the sense that it is estimated to positively impact the lives of thousands in the state. The state government will allocate 1-1.5% of the land with documents to beneficiaries in both urban and rural areas. 

The scheme officials mentioned that 17,000 housing colonies are coming up in the state and the state government, through the implementation of the scheme, will offer shelter to 31 lakh families at a whopping cost of ₹56,000 crores – an amount that is already earmarked by the state government in its state budget. 

Overhaul at the district level

To seamlessly implement the scheme, the Andhra Pradesh government is to create at least four new districts with the new AP YSR Jagananna housing colonies. This would be done to house nearly 1.2 crore people from 31 lakh families. 

Andhra Pradesh government will not stop at merely providing houses, but it will also supply 20 tonnes of sand free of cost to each housing unit and two fans, two tube lights and four bulbs and one overhead water storage tank as well. 

The person in charge of implementing the scheme would be the Andhra Chief Minister himself and would take up the responsibility to create top-class infrastructure in all housing colonies. To add to the deal, the government will also construct schools, parks, Anganwadi centres and even digital libraries in these colonies. 

All eligible poor who are yet to get a house site should apply in their nearest village/ward secretariat to get the benefit of the scheme within 90 days. 

Development of Infrastructure 

The AP housing scheme will offer the following components of infrastructure facilities: 

  • CC roads
  • Underground CC drains
  • Water supply
  • Electrification
  • Internet services

All of the aforementioned facilities will be offered to the residents in the AP YSR Jagananna scheme. If these facilities are not provided, the CM mentioned that in that case, nobody will come forward to occupy houses. 

This level of efficiency and implementation of plans is what is needed to make housing possible for all.

Schemes launched by the state government

The state governments of India are the next important government bodies right after the central government of the country. The state governments constitute 28 states and 8 union territories

India is a democratic and republic country wherein highest authorities and powers are proffered to the central government. For the state government, real executive powers are given to Chief Minister as he is responsible for heading the Council of Ministers. The state governments of India work toward internal security, such as police department, social welfare, public health betterment and other similar state-related issues. The state government of the country earns its employee income from sales tax services, stamp duty services, and from some parts of GST.

The state governments have launched a variety of schemes so far. Some of the examples are as follows:

In Andhra Pradesh, Chandranna Bima Yojana, National Energy Efficient Agriculture Pumps Program, and Smart Pulse Survey have been launched. In Assam, Mass Rapid Transit System has been recently launched. In Maharashtra, Police Pratisaad Ask services and various schemes for the betterment of farmers have been launched. In Karnataka, PM Santwana Harish Yojana, and Housing scheme for Transgenders have been launched. In Uttar Pradesh, Deen Dayal Upadhyay Gram Jyoti Yojana, Hausla Paushan scheme, and Swadhar Greh yojana have been launched.

The state government of India monitors both rural and urban development. However, it is not feasible for the state government to monitor all rural and urban local government bodies. Thus, based on the provided funding and coverage, rural and urban local entities create development plan whenever required. These government entities work in close association with planning commission and local or regional government sectors and authorities.

Apart from these schemes, the state government also ensures the effective implementation of centrally sponsored schemes in respective states.
