Maha: DISHA meet passes resolution seeking PMAY grant hike, Mumbai-Latur Vande Bharat service
The concerned authorities should be vigilant and ensure the works under this scheme are of good quality, Shrangare said.
A resolution passed at the meeting of District Development Coordination and Monitoring Committee, also called 'DISHA', in Latur in Maharashtra on Saturday sought that the grant under the Centre's Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana be increased to Rs 4 lakh from the present Rs 1.5lakh.
Speaking at a press conference following the DISHA meeting at the collectorate here, Dharashiv (formerly Osmanabad) Lok Sabha MP Omraje Nimbalkar said the current amount was not adequate to build homes due to rise in input costs.
Other resolutions passed at the meeting sought the starting of a Vande Bharat Express from Mumbai to Latur due to heavy passenger rush on the route, and increase in financial assistance provided to destitute persons, disabled, orphan children, needy women under Sanjay Gandhi Niradhar Pension and other schemes to Rs 5,000.
Latur MP Sudhakar Shrangare, Collector Prithviraj BP, ZP chief executive officer Abhinav Goyal. among others, took part in the meeting.
At least Rs 547 crore has been sanctioned for 945 schemes in Latur under the Central government's Jal Jeevan Mission and hence, officials need to ensure that the quality of work is good, MP Shrangare said at the meeting.
''The Jal Jeevan Mission is being implemented to supply tap water to every household in rural areas. This will help to resolve the drinking water issue. The concerned authorities should be vigilant and ensure the works under this scheme are of good quality,'' Shrangare said.
