The Telangana Cabinet on Tuesday approved a major sop for the homeless poor in the state. It has decided to launch the construction of 2BHK houses for them to coincide with the first anniversary of TS Formation Day on June 2.
The 2BHK housing scheme — a major poll promise of the TRS — will be launched in selected mandals in all the Assembly constituencies. The 2BHK houses will have a built up area of about 570 sq.ft, including a toilet.
The beneficiaries will be selected by district collectors based on the household survey conducted by the TS government in August last year. The government has estimated the expenditure for each 2BHK house at nearly Rs 9 lakh in cities and Rs 7 lakh in semi-urban and rural areas.
