Of this, the construction of just about 3,733 houses are in the finishing stages, and these are likely to be handed over to beneficiaries within a couple of months. The remaining 5,248 double bedroom houses are still under construction, while the tender process of a few houses is yet to be finalised before construction. 

Meanwhile, numerous eligible beneficiaries are still waiting for their application to be sanctioned.
