Best House Construction awardees

Jammu province has registered its three residents as awardees under “Best House Construction” under PradhanMantriAwasYojna . They are one from Samba, one from Ramgarhand one from Bhaderwah. To incentivise and encourage best performing states and UTs under the PMAY(U), for implementation and innovation , Government of India had decided in early 2019 to confer such awards . It is primarily with a view to make the dream of millions of the countrymen true to own a house and since a target of constructing one crore houses under the scheme by the end of 2022is envisaged , better performance and speed were aimed at, hence the award of ”Best House Construction”. It may be noted that monthly incremental progress on vital parameters is judged for deciding about such awards. Not only are, therefore, performers awarded but an opportunity is given to slow performers too to improve upon their working .
However, it is a matter of joy that three of the residents of Jammu Province got these awards through video conference by the Prime Minister . It must provide an opportunity to the concerned Municipal Councils and other agencies engaged in implementation of the flagship scheme of providing housing to all, to gear up their efforts in the noble direction and treat such awards as only the first ones and to strive to get more in future.
