Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren on Monday met Union rural development minister Giriraj Singh to seek approval for pending houses under the PM Awas scheme for the state.

Soren said as many as 629,447 houses under the PM Awas rural scheme were pending for approval with the Union rural development ministry.

Also, information on 207,775 houses was not captured on the list due to errors in data entry and hence the central government should facilitate verification and approval of these beneficiaries, he said.

Soren has been raising this issue for quite some time. Last year in November, he had written to the rural development minister requesting, among other things, to assign the physical target of the PM Awas rural scheme for 2022-23 for the state.

On Monday he met the minister in Delhi putting forward the request. Singh assured the CM that he would look into the matter, sources in the state government told ET.

“We had a positive discussion on rural development ministry schemes and the outlay for the state, MGNREGA and the 15th Finance Commission,” Soren said after the meeting.

Singh said various rural development schemes like PM Awas, PM Gram Sadak Yojana and MNREGA were discussed and the central government was committed to the development of rural Jharkhand.
