CG Aawas Portal – Single Window Residential Colony Approval by Chhattishgarh CM Bhupesh Baghel

Housing is one of the biggest concerns for the common person in India. With an increasing population and limited space, affording a house becomes a steep undertaking. The Chhattisgarh government, in light of the issues that arise with the problem of housing, has announced a solution – the CG Aawas Portal. 

About the CG Aawas Portal

The Chhattisgarh Aawas portal has been created to accelerate the approval process for residential colonies in the state. Through this portal, residential colony approvals will be done in a seamless and transparent manner. 

With the implementation of the scheme, applications for the development of residential colonies will now get approval within 100 days and there would be no need to make frequent visits to government offices to see the deal through. The updates regarding the application would be offered to the applicant through the Chhattisgarh Aawas portal and SMS. 

The Single window CG Aawas Portal

The CG Aawas portal will enable the completion of the entire residential colony and its approval process in under 100 days. If the colonizer applicant has not submitted the integrated and consolidated records of the land plot owned by the person, an additional time limit of 40 days will be given for the land record submission. Through the implementation of the single window CG Aawas portal, the applicant will no longer need to run from pillar to post in any governmental office. 

e-Awas and computerising the workflow of the Chhattisgarh Housing Board

To bring about the wave of digitisation, e-Awas is a web-based software that is developed to computerise the workflow of the Chhattisgarh Housing Board. Being a part of e-governance, the main objective is to create more transparency between the government and the public or the beneficiaries. 

Some of the major activities covered by e-Aawas are: 

  • Estate management
  • Works management
  • Accounts management
  • TLMS – TimeLine monitoring system
  • Freehold
  • Helpline service
  • Right to information – RTI
  • Lok Seva Guarantee Adhiniyam

How to get the approval through the CG Aawas Portal?

The Chhattisgarh government has appointed Additional District Magistrate in every district for proper implementation of the Single-window system so that it proves to be useful to the people it is meant to be useful for. The SDM will essentially forward the application to the departments concerned for further action. 

After getting approval from the departments concerned, the final approval will be given by SDM itself and the district collectors will review the applications received under the aforementioned system every week in the time-bound meeting. 

Wrapping it up

In the long run, such a system will prove beneficial in approving residential colonies, which up until now, took ages to get a go-ahead on. This will considerably dent the housing problem in the state, and could well be considered the first step among many more towards making housing a stress-free pursuit for the generations to come. 

In the end, quite like the other basic human needs, housing – representative of the shelter component, from food, clothing and shelter – should not be something that hassles a human.

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.
