AP YSR Pedalandariki Illu Scheme 2020

Housing undoubtedly stands to be an essential need, after all, a roof over your head is something we can all be grateful for. However, this is a privilege not everyone gets to enjoy and there are millions of people in the rural parts of India who go for years without having a proper house of their own.

In order to organize a better venture for them, the Andhra Pradesh government has initiated a new scheme that goes by the name AP YSR Pedalandariki Illu Scheme 2020.

What is the AP YSR Pedalandariki Illu Scheme 2020 all about?

The scheme is still in the pipelines and an official announcement of it will be made on the 25th of December 2020 which is also when its implementation will officially begin, however, this scheme is a housing scheme for the residents of Andhra Pradesh and brings in great news for those who have been struggling to get a concrete structure of their own to call it “home”.

The scheme is said to benefit 30.6 lakh beneficiaries across the entire state of Andhra Pradesh and there will be documents distributed for free house sites in the “litigation-free areas” of the state.

The budget sanction for the implementation of the scheme

On the 16th of June 2020, the Finance Minister of the Andhra Government formally introduced the budget of the state for the financial year 2020-21. One of the major highlights in the budget was the allocation of funds for the welfare of the needy people in the state of Andhra.

With the consequences of covid-19 lockdowns still not entirely washed from records, the government has given utmost priority to the welfare of the poor and marginalized people of Andhra. This year, for the implementation of the scheme, the government has sanctioned ₹3691.79 crores and it has specifically been earmarked for the welfare in the housing sector.

The AP YSR Pedalandariki Illu Scheme 2020 will be implemented in two phases. Under the first phase of AP YSR Pedalandariki Illu Scheme 2020, the construction will officially begin from the 25th of December 2020 and it is expected to continue well into the next years, more specifically till June 2022.

Under the second phase of implementation, the Housing scheme construction will carry out till June 2023.

In the first housing phase, around 15.1 lakh houses will be constructed and in the second phase, around 13 lakh houses will be constructed.

The approximate cost of construction of a single house is expected to be ₹1.80 lakh and these houses will be offered to the needy and the homeless free of cost.

Through the implementation of this scheme, the state of Andhra not only intends to offer housing solutions to the poor and needy of the state, but it also aims to boost the state’s economy through the organic generation of employment opportunities for millions of workers and labourers who have lately lost jobs due to the pandemic.

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.
