KAKINADA : The State Government has sanctioned 4,048 houses more for East Godavari district. 
Earlier, the government sanctioned 1,250 houses each for all the Assembly constituencies except for Kakinada Rural and Rajamahendravaram Rural segments in the district for the financial year 2016-17 for the benefit of poor people. 

Following representations from legislators and other people’s representatives of the two Assembly constituencies, 4,048 houses were newly sanctioned. 

This was in addition to 20,150 units sanctioned for the district earlier. Apart from the two Assembly constituencies, the newly merged mandals with the district as part of rehabilitation of the displaced people of Polavaram irrigation project, will get benefited from allotment of more houses for East Godavari. Under the Houses for All scheme of the Smart City Project, 4,608 units were sanctioned for Kakinada. 

The district administration has decided to give an impetus to implementation of housing schemes to realise the set targets for the current financial year. 

The construction of houses for the eligible poor in the limits of Kakinada Municipal Corporation will also get a big boost. 

“As we got 4,608 houses under the Houses for All scheme, a field level survey is being conducted to identify the beneficiaries. Local representatives and Janmabhoomi committees will also be involved in its implementation. The housing scheme will be taken up in the municipal corporation soon,” said KMC Commissioner Aleem Basha.
