To make it easier for the people, the State Government has decided to enable the paying of the registration fee by recipients of houses under the Bangla Bari Scheme directly to banks. The fee is Rs 35,000 for a flat and Rs 25,000 for a standalone house.
Under this scheme, those poor people who have at least 500 square feet (sq ft) of land get Rs 3.48 lakh for constructing a house. The money is transferred to the plot-owner’s bank account in five instalments of Rs 60,000, Rs 1 lakh (for two instalments), Rs 50,000 and Rs 38,000, respectively.
The passing of the Thika Tenancy Act by the State Assembly has given a spur to the construction of houses under this scheme.
