Bhubaneswar: Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi urging the latter to open the window of Aawaas+ Mobile App for the entire state for a period of one month to migrate the data of identified households.
The CM had last year requested the PM to cover about 6 lakh identified eligible households under PMAY(G) in respect of the districts not affected by Cyclone FANI.
“I would like to apprise that Aawaas+ window was opened by Ministry of Rural Development, Government of India only for 14 Cyclone FANI affected districts for a period of one month. The process of identification could not be taken up in the remaining 16 districts not affected by Cyclone FANI. These are predominantly tribal dominated districts and cover all the KBK areas. The State has identified the left-out eligible households in these districts through State-developed RH Portal observing the procedure similar to Aawaas+,” Patnaik said in the letter.
“In such a scenario, the Ministry of Rural Development, Government of India may be directed to open the window of Aawaas+ Mobile App for the entire State of Odisha for a period of one month to migrate the data of identified eligible households to Aawaas+,” he added.
