Centre to contribute 90 pc for NE housing

By The Assam Tribune

AIZAWL, Sept 16 � Union Minister for Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation Kumari Selja today said that the funding pattern on implementation of Rajiv Awas Yojana (RAY) would be 90:10 in the Northeastern States with the Centre contributing 90 per cent of the fund.

Addressing a press conference here this evening, Selja said that the RAY funding pattern in the region, unlike other States where the Centre contributed 50 per cent, was decided due to the unique problems faced by the States of the North East including difficult terrain, transportation costs and others.

�The main objective of the RAY is to make Indian urban areas slum free,� she said, adding that the Centre had released Rs 4.6 crore to the Mizoram Government under RAY.

Selja also said that Rs 65 crore would be earmarked for establishment of Skill Training and Women Vendor Marketing Complex in the State which would include establishment of State resource centre and capacity building support.

The Centre had earmarked Rs 109 crore for Mizoram under JNNURM and had so far released Rs 42 crore, she said.

Selja had earlier inaugurated the Conclave on Urban Poverty Alleviation for Northeastern States and Sikkim here, which was attended by State Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla, State Urban Development and Poverty Alleviation Minister Zodintluanga and officials from the Urban Development and Poverty Alleviation departments of the region. � PTI
