Dewas (Madhya Pradesh): Dewas Municipal Corporation on Monday said legal action will be taken against beneficiaries who have not constructed houses even after taking up to Rs 2 lakh under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY).
Municipal commissioner Vishal Singh Chouhan issued the orders while reviewing the progress of PMAY. At the review meeting, Chouhan also said to ban transfer of their properties through registered sale deed. “The PMAY beneficiaries will not be able to donate or mortgage their properties,” he added.
