We are undertaking a massive housing campaign to build houses for 2 lakh families without land or housing, which will be inaugurated on Kerala Piravi, 1 November 2016. Emphasis will be on financial empowerment and providing means of livelihood. All landless and homeless will be rehabilitated in the next five years.
3 cents would be needed per family for independent houses, requiring a total of 6,000 acres for 2 lakh families. Instead, as our state faces an acute shortage of land, housing complexes will be built, requiring only 1,140 acres of land. Social security schemes will be initiated in the housing complexes, as well as skill training for adults among the beneficiaries. Emphasis will be on financial empowerment and providing means of livelihood. The project will be coordinated between the departments of local self government and social welfare.
