Affordable Houses Under IHSDP

The Minister for Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation Kumari Selja has said that Delhi being a mission city, a total of 67,784 houses have been approved for urban poor/slum dwellers including the Scheduled Castes/Schedule Tribes, backward castes and economically poor under the sub-Mission on Basic Services to the Urban Poor (BSUP)- component of Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM), rather than Integrated Housing and Slum Development Programme (IHSDP), which is for non-Mission cities. 
In a written reply in the Rajya Sabha today Kumari Selja said, JNNURM was for a period of 7 years upto 2012 and it has been extended for 2 years upto March, 2014 for completion of projects sanctioned upto March, 2012. During the extended period, no new houses can be sanctioned under BSUP or IHSDP. JNNURM guidelines are applicable to dwellers of slums and do not differentiate between slum dwellers based on caste in connection with identification of beneficiaries.
