"Beneficiaries of the PMAY are facing a lot of problems due to high prices of sand. Hence, I announce that PMAY beneficiaries will get sand for free to construct their houses, and necessary amendments will be made in the State's sand policy for the purpose," Mr. Chouhan said.

The Chief Minister further said another survey will be conducted to cover beneficiaries who were left out in the 2011 list to ensure that maximum number of poor families get their own houses under the scheme.
