Exercise to be carried out from September 1 to 15

DCC teams to visit villages and examine beneficiaries’ lists

Handing over of first phase ‘Indiramma’ houses from October 2

ANANTAPUR: The District Congress Committee (DCC) has decided to visit villages selected for the second phase of ‘Indiramma’ housing programme to identify the eligible missed out families and also to detect the ineligible ones, if included by any chance. The families which have been denied the benefit will be included in the beneficiaries’ list.

Talking to newspersons here on Wednesday, DCC president P. Venugopal Reddy said all eligible poor in the villages selected under the second phase of the programme would be sanctioned houses, irrespective of their political affiliation and caste or creed. The decision to identify the missed out families by the DCC was taken at the recent PCC meeting held in Hyderabad.

The DCC teams would visit the villages, examine the beneficiaries’ list and find out if any eligible family was not sanctioned house under ‘Indiramma’. They would take the list of missed out families to the notice of the officials concerned for their inclusion under the scheme. The exercise would be carried out from September 1 to 15. While handing over of the houses constructed in the first phase to be taken up from October 2, the DCC teams would also identify eligible families missed out in the first phase. Such families would be sanctioned houses in the second phase itself, he said.

An extended DCC meeting would be conducted on August 25 with legislators, Ministers, ZPTC members, ZP Chairperson and others. The DCC president thanked the Chief Minister for including Anantapur in the five districts selected for the Rs. 900-crore rural road improvement project.
