#WeeklyNewsRoundup: Centre Approves Subsidy Of 3% On Home Loans In Rural Areas [Video]

Loading video...

Description

In a bid to ease EMI burden by ensuring cheap home loans in rural areas, the Centre has approved three per cent interest subsidy on loans of up to Rs 2 lakh for all households not covered under Pradhan Mantri Aawas Yojana (Gramin). Stating this rural development minister Narendra Singh Tomar said: “The scheme would also enable people in rural areas to construct new houses or add to their existing pucca houses to improve their dwelling units.”

Redevelopment of dilapidated colonies of the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA) is expected to get a boost. The state government has proposed to allow developers pay either a premium or offer housing stock to the authority for projects spread over less than 2,000 sq m. Mumbai has 104 MHADA layouts, of which buildings in 56 colonies are dilapidated. Most of these are spread over less than 2,000 sq m.

Owing to limited scope to expand in the City Beautiful due to non-availability of land, the Chandigarh Housing Board (CHB) for the first time is moving outside the city and will construct flats in Punjab’s Mullanpur and Kandaghat, near Solan in Himachal Pradesh.

While the construction of a few projects is under way in Mullanpur, 60 acres will be developed in Kandaghat. The scheme would be open for all and not restricted to Chandigarh residents.

With less than a month to go for its maiden global investment summit in Ranchi, the Jharkhand government plans to allot non-cultivable land to prospective investors willing to set up their units in the state. The state government official said the government had identified approximately one lakh hectares of non-cultivable land in possession of various state government departments. The state currently has a land bank of 1,500 acres.
