Deputy Commissioner A B Ibrahim, ZP CEO Tulasi Maddineni and ZP Vice President Sathish Kumar Kumpala look on.
Taking note of the complaints over misuse of government housing schemes by beneficiaries, MP Nalin Kumar Kateel has directed the department officials to conduct an enquiry into the issue and submit a report to the DK DC soon.
The MP said that he was aware of several cases in the district where the beneficiaries of Basava Vasathi and Indira Awas Scheme sold their houses to others. The beneficiaries have handed over their house agreement copy to others and have received cash in return, he said.
He was speaking at the district-level vigilance and monitoring committee meeting at Zilla Panchayat on November 6, Thursday. Elaborating one such instance, the MP said that a beneficiary had not only sold the house built under the scheme to another person, but also got another house sanctioned for himself under a housing scheme. He could easily get the second house sanctioned due to the assistance of a local elected representative, the MP stated. A proper probe and correction of the matters is vital.
