Model Village In Every District-K Chandra Shekar Rao

Telangana CM KCR, buoyed by the successful implementation of  2BHK scheme in the two villages adopted by him in the Siddipet constituency, is now keen on selecting one village in every district and converting into a model village in the next two years.

The State government has fallen back on this idea as the 2BHK scheme could not take off on as large a scale as  the government wanted, despite the allocation of substantial funds. In many districts, the contractors not willing to the construct the houses at the price fixed by the government. 

The government wanted the houses to be constructed at a cost of Rs 5.50 lakh per unit in the districts, However, private agencies are demanding Rs 7.50 lakh per unit. The CM expressed his happiness at the timely completion of the houses in Erravelli and Narsannapet villages adopted by him. While participating in the mass house-warming ceremony there on Friday, KCR discussed with Housing Minister A Indrakran Reddy and Principal Secretary to Housing Chitra Ramachandran the possibility of executing the scheme in a similar manner in all other districts. 

KCR was keen on adopting one village in every districts and establishing model villages with all basic amenities and infrastructure like safe drinking water, sanitaion, road network, power supply and other facilities. The officials have been asked to send proposals along with the district plans, for inclusion in the state's annual budget for 2017-18. These model villages would have been internet connectivity. Each of the model villages would have also be made cashless by allocating special funds in the budget.
