Vambay Houses in Lucknow

The then Hon’ble Prime Minister announced on Independence Day, 2001, from the ramparts of the Red Fort, a new Centrally sponsored scheme called Valmiki Ambedkar Awas Yojana (VAMBAY) with a view to ameliorating the conditions of the urban slum dwellers living below the poverty line who do not possess adequate shelter.  The scheme has the primary objective to facilitate the construction and upgradation of the dwelling units for the slum dwellers and to provide health and enabling urban environment through community toilets under Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan, a component of the scheme.  This scheme was formally launched by the then Hon’ble Prime Minister himself on 2nd December 2001, at Hyderabad.  This is the first scheme of its kind meant exclusively for slum dwellers with a Government of India subsidy of 50 per cent; the balance 50 per cent to be arranged by the State Government with ceiling costs prescribed both for dwelling units/community toilets.  The State’s share may consist of funds from any source in the form of subsidy or loan from Housing and Urban Development Corporation Limited (HUDCO) or any other agency.  The guidelines of the scheme provides for submission of proposals by the nodal agencies of State Governments to HUDCO who, in turn, process and forward them to this Ministry with their recommendations.  The funds are released by this Ministry only after a VAMBAY account is opened by the State Nodal Agency and the share of the State/Union Territory Government is deposited in that account.
