The project includes mass awareness programmes as well as volunteers visiting the homes of the PMAY (U) beneficiaries to have them enrolled into Ujjwala scheme, for LPG connections, Ayushman Bharat health cards and Ujala, for LED lights.

Meanwhile, the Ministry sanctioned construction of another 2.99 lakh houses under PMAY (U) on Thursday, bringing the total number of sanctioned homes to 88 lakh, the Minister said.
