In a statement in the just concluded special session of assembly for ratifying GST bill, Rural Development minister Naresh Jamatia made it clear that left front government in Tripura has been illegally collecting fund of Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna (PMAY) from beneficiaries account through block development officers (BDO) to the government accounts. The opposition alleged that the state government is skillfully doing the mischief in the rural areas and the matter has been informed to the central government seeking action on it. However, the minister argued to follow the old tradition of the scheme and the department is reviewing the issue. The PMAY has been designed by the centre to the families without having a pucca house regardless of status as BPL. Each of the beneficiaries was sanctioned Rs 1.30 lakh for house building in three installments and fund was directly transferring to the beneficiaries account.
