“At 1 PM today, the first installment of Pradhan Mantri Awaas Yojana – Gramin (PMAY-G) would be given to 1.47 lakh beneficiaries of Tripura. This will give a big impetus towards empowering the people of the state,” PM Modi tweeted.
The first installment will be transferred at around 1 pm today via video conferencing, informed an official statement issued by the Prime Minister Office.
“More than Rs 700 crore will be credited directly to the bank accounts of the beneficiaries on the occasion, the statement said.
The statement further said that a large number of beneficiaries living in ‘kuccha’ houses will get assistance to construct a ‘pucca’ house in Tripura after taking into account the unique geo-climatic condition of the state.
