New law to ensure affordable housing to homeless in Madhya Pradesh

BHOPAL: Madhya Pradesh will be the first state in the country to enact a new law ensuring affordable housing to the people. Under the law, no poor will be shifted without ensuring a shelter or a new accommodation, informed a review meeting chaired by chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.

The meeting stated that the government would observe September 25 as “Garib Kalyan Varsh (welfare year for poor), on the birth anniversary of Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay.” This is to support homeless and provide them with affordable housing as per law.

During the year, various pro-poor schemes will be reviewed, suitably improved and new schemes will be launched. The state government will also make public its report card on the basis of its performance. The meeting also discussed availability of surplus land to facilitate landless farmers. Plans to constitute a land reforms commission were also afoot, it said.
