THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The state government will hand over new houses to 20,808 beneficiaries on May 17 as part of the Life Mission Project. Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan will inaugurate the function by handing over the keys to Ameeruddeen-Aisha Beevi couple of Kadinamkulam panchayat here on 17 May at 4 pm. The handing over of other houses will be held at functions organised in the respective   local self-governments, said the Minister for Local self-governments M V Govindan.

The event is part of the second 100-day programme of the government. Earlier, 12,000 houses were handed over as part of the first 100-day programme. As many as 2,95,006 houses have been handed over as part of the mission so far. 34,374 houses are in construction.
