The district administration undertook a number of initiatives to promote the importance of PMAY-G in the district including use of innovative methods such as running campaigns through educational institutions, local government and media platforms to raise awareness of the project and its potential impact on the people of Rajouri.
This achievement has enabled thousands of families to receive decent, affordable and safe housing, leading to a greater sense of security and well-being among the community in the district.
Deputy Commissioner, while expressing gratitude to all stakeholders for their outstanding contribution towards timely completion of these houses, assured that more such houses would be constructed in the coming months.
