About 42 lakh poor got houses in four years: Uttar Pradesh CM – ET RealEstate

LUCKNOW: Unleashing a frontal attack on the opposition, chief minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday said previous governments in Uttar Pradesh never had the poor, women, farmers or youth on their agenda and this is buttressed by hard statistics.

Only 53 lakh houses could be provided to the needy in last 30 years, Yogi said, while distributing keys to 5.41 lakh beneficiaries of PM Awas Yojana (PMAY) and CM Awas Yojana (CMAY).

In contrast, the BJP government, he said, provided 41.73 lakh houses in rural and urban areas in four years, which is a record. “It was only after PM Narendra Modi assumed power in 2014 that the poor were associated with various schemes of the government without discrimination of caste, region or religion,” said Yogi, who also interacted with beneficiaries from Ayodhya, Varanasi, Rae Bareli, Bahraich and Kushinagar.

He said, people were unable to receive the entire amount under PMAY scheme. “Earlier, there was corruption and discrimination,” Yogi said, insisting that Jan Dhan accounts opened in banks following PM Modi’s directions plugged leakages and the needy received the entire amount.

The CM enquired from beneficiaries if they had received benefits of other schemes, including Ujjwala, Saubhagya and Ayushman. The CM maintained that houses provided to poor under PMAY and CMAY were part of the pro-people agenda of the BJP government at the Centre and state. Yogi lauded the Lakhimpur Kheri administration for promoting the “cluster approach”, under which the needy were provided houses and facilities like electricity and piped drinking water in a township-like setting in Landanpur village.

“Earlier, development was usurped by nepotism and casteism. However, when a good government is chosen by the people, benefits from schemes reach every needy,” Yogi stressed. He added, the state government was satisfied that 70% owners of PMAY were women, which has, in turn brought them closer to the dream of PM Modi to make women ‘atmanirbhar’ (self-reliant).

Yogi also pitched for the coming together of economically sound rural families and the state government for providing better facilities in villages. “People should not be totally dependent on the government. They should instead help in bringing socio-economically poor people into the mainstream,” he insisted.

Stop 10% fee on property transfers: Noida Sec 62 RWA to Uttar Pradesh CM – ET RealEstate

NOIDA: Members of the Sector 62 RWA have written to chief minister Yogi Adityanath, urging him to do away with the 10% property transfer memorandum charge levied by the Noida Authority.

The residents said property prices hadn’t seen much hike in the past few years and many of them have had pay cuts and job losses during the pandemic.

The residents also questioned the logic of charging a 10% fee for property transfers when they have already paid 99 years’ lease, which, they claimed, was 11 times the prevalent rate then. There are 47 highrises in Sector 62 and most of the people had bought flats there in the nineties.

“The flat owners had invested their hard-earned money about 20 years ago. As property transfer charge, the Noida Authority is now levying 10% of the difference between the selling price and the cost of its acquisition. This nearly amounts to 20% capital gains tax, just for changing the name of the owner in their records. This is a huge burden on residents,” said RK Uprety, the RWA president.

Uprety also pointed out that property prices had slumped in the past few years. “The property market has witnessed a reduction of about 25% in rates. It is shocking that property transfer charges are being levied now,” he said.

“We have already paid a one-time lease for 99 years, which was 11 times the prevalent rate according to Authority rules. Even after that, it is only in Noida where we not only have to pay a registry amount again but also this property transfer charge now. So, we have urged the CM to remove this clause and clear the freehold properties for Noida residents,” said Uprety.
