THE Government has been working to free the housing sector of corruption and middlemen to ensure people get their own houses without facing troubles, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said. He also said that use of latest technology is ensuring faster building of houses for the poor in rural and urban areas at affordable cost.

“We have been working to free the housing sector from middlemen, corruption and ensuring that the beneficiaries get their own home without hassles,” Modi said while addressing beneficiaries of the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna (PMAY) through video conference. He also said the housing sector is being invigorated with the latest technology. “This is enabling faster construction of affordable houses for the poor in towns and villages,” the Prime Minister said.
