Development Authorities and Housing & Development Board gets EWS/LIG buildings constructed on priority
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mr. Akhilesh Yadav has said that the state government has taken a decision to form an inter-departmental committee for community housing projects to assimilate new technology, in consonance to the recommendations made by the Building Materials and Technology Promotion Council. This committee would be formed from the executing agencies and departments related to building construction.
The Chief Minister highlighted these points in a letter written to Union Urban Development, Housing and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Mr. M. Venkaiah Naidu. The Chief Minister also underlined how the interdepartmental committee would review and inspect buildings in various states with regard to the Council’s recommendations on technology.
The committee would also give its recommendations with regards to assimilation of techniques in building construction related department, development authorities and Housing and Development Board. Mr. Yadav also informed the union minister that various development authorities and the Housing and Development Board builds on priority EWS/LIG houses. The committee, with this in mind, would also review on whether the new technologies were more cost-effective than the conventional methods of construction.
Based on the recommendations of the committee the state government would take a decision as warranted, which would then be implemented by all agencies involved in building construction/private builders. It may be pointed out here that the Union Minister had written to the UP Chief Minister with regards to assimilation and adoption of new technologies as recommended by the Council.
