According to former district mission coordinator Ernest C Thomas, the beneficiaries are both landless and those who do not own a house as seen in the third phase.
Construction of as many as 20,750 houses has been completed under the third phase of the Life Mission so far in Ernakulam. The construction of housing complexes is progressing in the district.
According to former district mission coordinator Ernest C Thomas, the third phase beneficiaries are both landless and those who do not own a house. He was speaking on Saturday during the seminar organized as part of district level celebration of observing local self-government day at Ernakulam Town Hall.
The construction of housing complexes under the third phase is underway at Ayyampuzha, Kochi Corporation and Karumalloor. Housing complexes have been already completed and handed over to beneficiaries at Keezhmadu and Angamaly.
Thomas said many people are relinquishing land for constructing houses for the landless under the mission. The authorities are identifying places with the support of public participation for the cause. Government is also trying to identify eligible persons who were not included in the first and second phases of the mission. Applications were invited and the list of the beneficiaries will be published after scrutinizing all the applications.
At Saturday’s function, Swaraj trophy for the best panchayat in the district was handed over to Kunnukara panchayat. Second prize went to Palakkuzha panchayat. Mahatma award for implementing national rural employment guarantee scheme was handed over to Kunnukara and Thirumaradi panchayats.
