The chief minister of Andhra Pradesh YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has stressed that the YSRC government has decided to provide houses to all the homeless in the state and asked officials to have progressive monitoring of the works to ensure quality and their completion in a stipulated period. Jagan conducted a high-level review meeting with housing minister Jogi Ramesh and municipal administration minister Adimulapu Suresh and senior officials on Thursday.
The chief minister said an amount of Rs 5,655 crore had been spent on the housing programme so far this fiscal. He said it is important that the officials visit the layouts and review the progress of construction to ensure their completion in an expeditious manner. He said to officials that they must upload photos of their visit to these layouts and their monitoring of the construction works on their web portal.
Jagan asked the officials to pay special attention to the houses of beneficiaries who exercised their option 3, wherein the government would construct houses and identify the works on a priority-basis, layout-wise, to help complete the construction works according to schedule. Jagan also asked the officials to check quality in every stage of construction. He said them they must scrupulously comply with the standard operating procedure. He recommended to take the services of engineering assistants from village/ward Secretariat level to maintain quality in the constructions.
Authorities informed the chief minister that they had prepared the DPR on various works related to the housing programme. They were observing every Saturday as Housing Day, wherein officials visited the layouts and inspected the progress of housing works to avoid any delay in the progress of work.
