PM Narendra Modi to Inaugurate India’s Largest Housing Project for Economically Weaker Sections in Solapur

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to inaugurate India’s most extensive housing project for economically weaker sections in Solapur, Maharashtra. The ambitious development, located in Raynagar, spans a sprawling 100 acres and aims to construct a total of 30,000 homes. Impressively, 15,000 of these homes are already completed, as announced by Valsa Nair Singh, Maharashtra’s Additional Chief Secretary.

Execution by Mhada with PMAY Support The Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (Mhada) is spearheading the project’s execution, with crucial support from the central government’s Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY).

Diverse Beneficiaries This monumental project caters to a diverse range of beneficiaries, including unorganized workers, textile laborers, beedi workers, construction laborers, ragpickers, and garment workers. It reflects the government’s commitment to providing affordable housing to various sections of society.

Multi-Thousand Crore Dharavi Redevelopment Project In addition to the Solapur project, Valsa Nair Singh announced the impending signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to kickstart the multi-thousand crore Dharavi redevelopment project. This initiative is expected to set the stage for similar cluster-based projects across the state, aligning with the government’s focus on cluster-based development.

Maharashtra’s Housing Policy Objectives Singh highlighted the key objectives of the forthcoming housing policy, including promoting affordable housing, creating “walkable cities,” enhancing work-life balance, integrating smart home technology, and prioritizing homes for specific demographics like senior citizens and students. The policy aims to address the issue of skilled manpower and uphold the dignity of senior citizens as India’s population ages.

Government’s Commitment to Climate Action Pravin Darade, Principal Secretary for the Environment, emphasized the government’s commitment to crafting an action plan for climate change. To facilitate this process, the government has enlisted 20 interns working in collaboration with various government departments.

The inauguration of this colossal housing project marks a significant step towards addressing the housing needs of economically weaker sections and promoting inclusive development in India.
