As of now, Assam has successfully constructed 12,43,584 houses out of the targeted 19,10,823, with an impressive achievement of 8.39 lakh houses in the last two years.

In line with the Antyodaya philosophy, Prime Minister Narendra Modi set a challenging goal of constructing 19,10,823 houses in Assam.

The housing initiative in Assam not only addresses the pressing issue of shelter but also promotes sustainable development and livelihood enhancement. The construction of these houses creates employment opportunities, stimulating economic growth in the state. Additionally, the improved living conditions empower individuals and families to pursue education, work, and other socio-economic activities, thereby uplifting their overall quality of life.

These policies include streamlined approval processes, financial assistance programs, and partnerships with private sector entities. By creating an enabling environment, the government has encouraged participation from various stakeholders, making the housing initiative a collective success.

The government has fostered a spirit of inclusivity by engaging local residents, community leaders, and non-governmental organizations. This approach ensures that the housing projects are tailored to meet the specific needs of each community, promoting a sense of ownership and pride among the beneficiaries.

With over 6.67 lakh houses still left to be constructed, CM Himanta Biswa Sarma's government remains resolute in achieving the remaining targets. The roadmap for the upcoming years includes intensified efforts in the identification of beneficiaries, swift execution of construction projects, and continued collaboration with stakeholders.
