In a statement, the Union Housing and Urban Affairs Ministry said that the awards are aimed at enthusing states and Union Territories (UTs) to perform better and make the dream of a house for millions a reality within the decided period.

According to the ministry, few special category awards to give recognition to states and UTs for innovative technology in construction, community mobilization, slum redevelopment, policy initiatives, project monitoring among others have also been instituted.

In the statement, the ministry, which is mandated to implement the PMAY (U), stated one of the major factors influencing the rank of state and UTs for the evaluation of PMAY(U) awards is their monthly incremental progress on vital parameters which will be given more weight for the period of January to May 2019.

It stated that this provision has also been specially incorporated for giving a window of opportunity to slow progressing states and UTs for becoming good performers, giving them better chances of the award.

According to the statement, the PMAY (U) mission has achieved a significant milestone of approving 73 lakh houses against a demand of about 1 crore in urban areas.Out of these, around 39 lakh houses are at various stages of construction and around 15 lakh houses have already been completed, it added.
