Mo Ghara’ Scheme:- Bhubaneswar: As Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik completed four years of his fifth term, the state Cabinet authorized the start of a new housing plan called “Mo Ghara” to give financial help to low and middle-income people in rural regions on Monday.
According to official sources, the scheme will cover all such families who were excluded from existing housing schemes due to stringent eligibility criteria or insufficient allocation, as well as those who received housing assistance in the past but now want to upgrade or expand their homes.
A recipient can obtain a house loan of up to Rs 3 lakh under the ‘MO GHARA’ (Government House Assistance in Rural Areas) Scheme, which can be repaid in 10 years, except for a one-year moratorium period, in simple payments. They can choose from four loan amounts: Rs 1 lakh, 1.5 lakh, 2 lakh, and 3 lakh.
The state government would shoulder the scheme’s expenditures of Rs 2150 crore for about 4 lakh beneficiaries during a two-year period.
Mo Ghara’ Criteria for Eligibility
This initiative will be available to the rural families listed below.
- If the family is dwelling in a kutcha home or a single pucca room with an RCC roof.
- If the household has never received any government housing help or has received assistance worth less than Rs.70,000/- in the past.
- If the family’s monthly income is less than Rs.25,000.
- If the household does not have a personal non-commercial motorized four-wheeler.
- If no one in the household is a regular Government / PSU employee or is receiving a monthly pension from the Government / PSU.
- If the family owns less than 5 acres of irrigated land or less than 15 acres of non-irrigated land.
- On completion of the house, the state government would disburse capital subsidies to the recipients’ loan accounts. Increased capital subsidies would be given to disadvantaged groups such as SC/ST and PWD-headed households. The subsidy rates determined by the State Cabinet today are as follows:
- The capital subsidy issued to the recipients’ loan accounts would result in a large reduction in EMI for payback, making repayment more affordable.
- Banks will not charge the recipient any processing fees for loan approval.
- To further alleviate the financial burden on the beneficiaries, the State Government has eliminated the registration cost and stamp taxes necessary for the mortgage of the title deed. The fees for obtaining certified copies of essential papers from Sub-Registrar offices, which are required by banks in order to process loan applications under this plan, would also be eliminated.
- The legal consultation price is also capped at Rs. 1000/-, which the State Government would pay to banks.
- Beneficiaries may also get assistance under appropriate rural sanitation, drinking water, and rural electricity initiatives if they are judged to be eligible and have not previously received assistance.
