Under the PMAY-G, houses are being constructed with new technologies and amenities like water, gas, toilet and electricity supply.
In the 1st phase of the scheme from 2016-17 to 2018-19, a target for construction of 1 crore pucca houses were set. In the 2nd phase of the scheme starting from 2019-20 to 2021-22, the target of construction of the remaining 1.95 crore houses has been set.
