PM Imran to launch 5 million houses in ‘Mera Ghar’ scheme’s pilot project today

Prime Minister Imran Khan will launch a pilot project of ‘Mera Ghar’ scheme on Wednesday, taking a step to realise its commitment for providing 5 million homes at affordable prices to citizen in five years.

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), in its election manifesto, had pledged to provides houses to homeless people across the country if it voted to power. Now, it is going to launch the pilot projects of the scheme in all the four provinces and Gilgit-Baltistan in the first phase.

Media reports say the federal government in consultation with the provincial government will select a district in all the provinces where the project will be executed.

With the launch of the project, the registration process with the help of National Registration and Database Authority (NDRA) will also be started from today. The registration forms will be provided by NADRA at minimal price.

In order to handle the project, a special authority will be established after legislation. The project will be executed through public-private partnership.

PM Khan has already decided to take ownership of this demand-driven initiative that would not only fulfil PTI’s promise of provision of 05 million houses to the homeless but would also create huge economic activities and job opportunities for the youth.
