It is pertinent to mention here that under the ambitious scheme, nearly one Crores pucca houses are targeted for construction over a period of three years from 2016-17 to 2018-19 after the reconstruction of erstwhile rural housing scheme Indira Awaas Yojana (IAY) wherein 39000 houses were targeted for Jammu and Kashmir state but due to nonchalant attitude of official of rural development, the scheme is still implemented in letter and spirit.
Sources in rural development department informed that however, the slow pace of construction pucca houses were raised by various legislators during the District Development Board Meeting (DDBM) but due to lack of coordination among Directorate of Rural Development and lower rung official of department concerned, the target is still lingering on and thousands of rural poor yet to avail the facilities
