The central government has sought a report from the Himachal Urban Development Department on the past liability of the scheme and the plan of new work before releasing the third and final installment of the Shelter for Urban scheme. The life of this project is being completed on 30th September this year. Earlier, the central government has to release Rs 28.68 lakh of the third installment of the scheme.
The central government has sanctioned Rs 1.43 crore for this project. The Center has so far released Rs 1.14 crore to the Urban Development Department, that is, 80 percent of the budget of the scheme has been spent on the Shelter for Urban scheme. This money has been spent on 8 bodies of the state. Home shelters have been made in 40 bodies. In these, 840 beds have been arranged.
These homes are to house those who do not have a home and are sleeping on the streets. The Central Government has asked the Urban Development Department to release the report of this second installment before releasing the third installment. The central government wants to know that the money released to the department under the scheme, how much has been spent and how much budget is left.
Department director Manmohan Sharma said that before releasing the third and final installment under Shelter Urban, the central government has sought details of the budget released behind, which will be sent to the center soon. After this, as soon as the third installment is released, the project will be completed before the 30 September deadline.
