Acom­put­er­ized draw for al­lot­ment of houses will elim­i­nate mid­dle­men and en­sure trans­parency in the process, Gujarat Chief Min­is­ter Anandi Pa­tel said. "In the past, mid­dle­men used to syphon off ben­e­fits in­tended for poor. I hope that the com­put­er­ized draw sys­tem would keep them at bay," Pa­tel said here.

She presided over a func­tion to mark com­put­er­ized al­lot­ment of houses by the Gujarat Hous­ing Board (GHB). The draw was held for 772 houses to be con­structed in the city, un­der 'Mukhya­mantri GruhBSE 3.81 % Yo­jana'.

"Since 2012 when the then chief min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi an­nounced build­ing of 50 lakh houses for the ur­ban and ru­ral poor, the state gov­ern­ment has al­ready built 2lakh houses and al­lot­ted them to ben­e­fi­cia­ries. An­other 40,000 to 50,000 houses are in var­i­ous stages of com­ple­tion while gov­ern­ment plans to build 3 to 4lakh houses ev­ery year," she said.

The chief min­is­ter also said that the gov­ern­ment will pro­vide qual­ity in­fras­truc­tural fa­cil­i­ties near hous­ing sites in a transpar- ent and ex­pe­di­tious man­ner. "Apart from pro­vid­ing houses to the poor, the gov­ern­ment is also de­ter­mined to pro­vide them ed­u­ca­tion with a view to cre­ate a pros­per­ous so­ci­ety," Pa­tel said.

She also said that the state gov­ern­ment has al­ready ap­proved more than 150 town plan­ning schemes with an aim to make the state free of slums. "Th­ese houses are to be built for dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories of peo­ple as per their an­nual in­come," she added.

The chief min­is­ter said that gov­ern­ment will build homes for the eco­nom­i­cally weaker sec­tions and also help peo­ple get loans for their homes. It is our aim to pro­vide af­ford­able homes to ev­ery­body.
