Prime Minister Imran Khan will launch a pilot project of ‘Mera Ghar’ scheme on Wednesday.

The project has been conceived and led by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government to provide houses to homeless people in the country as part of its elections manifesto.

The federal government has decided to launch pilot projects in four provinces and Gilgit-Baltistan in the first phase of the ‘Mera Ghar’ scheme.

They said that the federal government in consultation with the provincial governments will select a district for executing the pilot project there. The pilot project will be started simultaneously in all four provinces and the GB.

With the help of National Registration and Database Authority (NDRA) registration form for the pilot project will be issued. A nominal price will be received for the registration form.

Sources said that Mera Ghar Authority will be established after proper legislation to execute the housing project.
