    Dear PM, not clear on how to avail the benefits of house for all as my maid who does not have a roof of their own for her family of 5 members including 3 children, has been running from post to pillar trying to avail the benefit of your ‘Pradhan Mantri Gramin Awas Yojna’. Such benefits should be under the direct benefit / transfer scheme to avoid middlemen take away 50pct or more of the benefit. Appreciate your intervention to clear such anomalies in the system which can only be remedied by direct transfer.

            What about some people who have house of their own living good life still managed to obtain an BPL card. Check around I bet not less than 1000 cases per state will be found.

              Only in up Punjab Gujarat ......why can't you come to south india ...we are also part of india. I wish we become separate from north India....every national news cover most news from north India , such as other part of india is not existing. Modi visited southern India not more than 10 times ....but he got lots of time for north and his foreign trips. I pray to God , we south india become separate . Big partiality by these north Indian leaders . Pathetic politicians.

                The ambitious central scheme aims to provide affordable houses to all those living below the poverty line by the year 2022. A great work by BJP govt for the poor sections of society.
