This will help in completion of 71,559 dwelling units around several parts of the country.

So far 7 sites have activated construction plans with material and manpower,” tweeted the finance ministry.
Last month, Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman organised a review meeting to analyse the progress of SWAMIH scheme.
While reviewing the performance of SWAMIH, the Union minister had highlighted the need for fast efforts for completing construction of projects for which last mile funds has been sanctioned.
