बजट 2019: प्रधानमंत्री आवास योजना की सुस्‍त रफ्तार को मिलेगी तेजी?

मोदी सरकार के दूसरे कार्यकाल का पहला आम बजट 5 जुलाई को पेश होने वाला है. इस बजट को वित्‍त मंत्री निर्मला सीतारमण पेश करेंगी

देश की वित्‍त मंत्री निर्मला सीतारमण आगामी 5 जुलाई को बजट पेश करने वाली हैं. इस बजट में प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी के ड्रीम प्रोजेक्‍ट ''आवास योजना''  में तेजी लाने के लिए जरूरी कदम उठाए जा सकते हैं. दरअसल, बीते कुछ महीनों से लगातार ऐसी रिपोर्ट आ रही हैं कि मोदी सरकार की प्रधानमंत्री आवास योजना (पीएमएवाई) की रफ्तार में सुस्‍ती आ गई है.

हालांकि सरकार के केंद्रीय आवासन और शहरी कार्य मंत्री हरदीप सिंह पुरी का दावा है कि 2 साल पहले ही लक्ष्‍य हासिल कर लिया जाएगा. बता दें कि पीएम मोदी ने कहा था कि 2022 में देश की स्वतंत्रता की 75वीं सालगिरह मनाने तक सबके लिए आवास योजना के तहत देश के सभी परिवारों के पास उनका अपना घर होगा.

सिर्फ 39 फीसदी घर बन सके?

बीते मार्च महीने में रियल स्टेट सेक्‍टर की समीक्षा करने वाली एनारॉक की एक रिपोर्ट ने योजना की रफ्तार पर सवाल खड़े कर दिए. इस रिपोर्ट के मुताबिक प्रधानमंत्री आवास योजना (पीएमएवाई) के तहत मंजूर सस्ते घरों में सिर्फ 39 फीसदी घर अब तक बन पाए. इस रिपोर्ट में कहा गया, "पीएमएवाई के तहत सस्ती आवासीय परियोजना की प्रगति की रफ्तार सुस्त है. आवासीय और शहरी मामलों के मंत्रालय के अनुसार, पीएमएवाई के तहत मंजूर 79 लाख घरों में से अब तक सिर्फ 39 फीसदी घरों का निर्माण पूरा हो चुका है."

रिपोर्ट के मुताबिक देश के 7 बड़े शहरों में नई आवासीय इकाइयों की आपूर्ति में पिछले पांच सालों में 64 फीसदी की कमी आई है. बता दें कि साल 2014 में 5.45 लाख आवासीय इकाइयां थीं. यह आंकड़ा 2018 में 1.95 लाख रह गई. रिपोर्ट में कहा गया कि घरों की बिक्री पिछले पांच साल में 28 फीसदी घट गई है. साल 2014 में जहां 3.43 लाख घरों की बिक्री हुई, वहीं पिछले साल 2.48 लाख घर बिके.

दो साल पहले मिल जाएगा लक्ष्‍य!  

केंद्रीय आवासन और शहरी कार्य मंत्री हरदीप सिंह पुरी ने बीते दिसंबर महीने में एक बयान दिया था. इस बयान में उन्‍होंने दावा किया था कि प्रधानमंत्री आवास योजना (पीएमएवाई) के तहत सबको आवास मुहैया करवाने का लक्ष्य 2022 की समय-सीमा से 2 साल पहले हासिल हो जाएगा. केंद्रीय मंत्री के मुताबिक राष्ट्रीय शहरी आवास निधि के तहत पीएमएवाई के लिए खासतौर से अतिरिक्त बजटीय संसाधन के रूप में 60,000 करोड़ रुपये प्रदान किए गए हैं.

क्‍या हैं मुश्किलें?

दरअसल, नोटबंदी के बाद से रियल एस्‍टेट सेक्‍टर बुरे दौर से गुजर रहा है. ऐसे में पजेशन में देरी और घरों की आपूर्ति बढ़ने जैसी कई चीजें हैं जो बाधा के रूप में सामने खड़ी हैं. सस्ते घरों की योजना को मिले इन्फ्रास्ट्रक्चर स्टेट्स जैसी चीजें भी नजरअंदाज नहीं की जा सकती है.

Union Minister for Jal Shakti, Shri Gajendra Singh Shekhawat reviewed the ongoing Namami Gange projects in Varanasi during his visit to the city today. He inspected the 140 Million Litres Day (MLD) Dinapur Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) from inlet upto outfall point into Varuna. He was accompanied by Director General, National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG), Shri Rajiv Ranjan Mishra.

Union Minister, Sh. Shekhawat instructed the officials of Dinapur STP to conduct periodic chemical checks to ensure that the sewage does not have any industrial or other toxic discharge. Under the Namami Gange program, 2 STPs at Dinapur and Goitha (120 MLD) have been recently completed at Varanasi, of which, the Dinapur STP was inaugurated late last year by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi in November 2018.

Furthermore, the 50 MLD STP being constructed in Ramana will bolster the existing sewage treatment capacity of the city and take it to 412 MLD which is adequate to meet the sewage treatment demand till 2035 and stop untreated sewage from entering the Ganga in Varanasi.

Shri Shekhawat also inspected all the 84 iconic Ghats of Varanasi by boat with a particular focus on the 26 Ghats, where the projects of repair/ renovation have been taken up under the Namami Gange Program. He also reviewed the project for regular cleaning of the 84 Ghats as well as the river surface cleaning project, both of which have been put in place under the Namami Gange Program to ensure cleanliness in and around the river.

Apart from inspecting the Ghats, he also observed the Ghat pumping stations and tapping of drains. Out of 23 drains, 20 drains have already been tapped. The remaining 3, including Assi are being tapped through Ramana STP project, which is to be completed during this year.

The Minister also visited ‘Ganga Tarini’, a floating museum on a house boat which showcases a film display on Ganga and its rich biodiversity. It is a first of its kind initiative to inform people about the various facets of the river including the social, cultural, historical and economical aspects. Ganga Tarini has been developed by the Wildlife Institute of India (WII) in collaboration with NMCG.

Shri Shekhawat also visited ‘Jalaj’, a boat which moves along the Ghats of Varanasi and the nearby villages, displaying and selling products prepared by the Ganga Praharis and local villagers, as a boost to better livelihood opportunities for people living along the banks of the Ganga. The trained Ganga Praharis also educate the local people and tourists regarding Ganga river, biodiversity and cleanliness.

The Prime Minister stressed that the focus should be on collective responsibility for achieving short term and long term goals.

Shri Narendra Modi said that the goal to make India a 5 trillion dollar economy by 2024, is challenging, but can surely be achieved. He said States should recognise their core competence, and work towards raising GDP targets right from the district level.

Noting that the export sector is an important element in the progress of developing countries, he said both the Centre and the States should work towards growth in exports, in order to raise per capita incomes.

He said that the benefits of PM-KISAN – KisanSammanNidhi – and other farmer centric schemes should reach the intended beneficiaries well within time. Noting that there is need for structural reform in agriculture, the Prime Minister spoke of the need to boost corporate investment, strengthen logistics, and provide ample market support. He said the food processing sector should grow at a faster pace than foodgrain production.

Turning to aspirational districts, the Prime Minister said that the focus should be on good governance. He said improvement in governance has led to remarkable progress in several aspirational districts. Giving several examples, he said out-of-the-box ideas, and innovative service delivery efforts in some of these districts have also delivered outstanding results.

The Prime Minister said that many aspirational districts are affected by Naxal violence. He said the battle against Naxal violence is now in a decisive phase. He said violence will be dealt with firmly, even as development proceeds in a fast-paced and balanced manner.

On the health sector, the Prime Minister said that several targets have to kept in mind, to be achieved by 2022. He also mentioned the target of eliminating TB by 2025. The Prime Minister urged those States who have not implemented PMJAY under Ayushman Bharat, so far, to come onboard this scheme at the earliest. He said health and wellness should be the focal point of every decision.

The Prime Minister said that we are now moving towards a governance system characterized by Performance, Transparency and Delivery. He said proper implementation of schemes and decisions is vital. He called upon all members of the Governing Council of NITI Aayog to help create a government setup which works, and has the trust of the people.

हमारे युवाओं को एक दूसरे के साहित्य यानि लिटरेचर से परिचय हमारे संबंधों को गहराई देगा। SCO देशों की भाषा में भारतीय साहित्य की 10 श्रेष्ठ कृतियों का translation किया जायेगा। हाल ही में, उज्बेकिस्तान के सहयोग से, ताशकंत में SCO फिल्म फेस्टिवल का सफलतापूर्वक आयोजन किया गया। इसमें मनोरंजक बॉलीवुड और उज़बेकी फिल्मों का समावेश था। Literature और culture हमारे समाजों को एक सकारात्मक गतिविधि प्रदान करते हैं। खासकर यह हमारे समाज में युवाओं के बीच radicalization फैलने से रोक सकता है।

T for Terrorism free society

पिछले रविवार श्रीलंका की अपनी यात्रा के दौरान, मैं सेंट एंटनी के चर्च गया था। वहां मुझे आतंकवाद के उस घिनौने चेहरे का स्मरण हुआ जो हर कहीं, कभी भी प्रकट होकर रोज़ मासूमों की जान लेता है। इस खतरे से निपटने के लिए सभी मानवतावादी ताकतों को अपने-अपने संकीर्ण दायरे से निकलकर एक जुट हो जाना चाहिए। आतंकवाद को प्रोत्साहन, समर्थन और वित्त प्रदान करने वाले राष्ट्रों को जिम्मेदार ठहराना जरुरी है। SCO सदस्यों को आतंकवाद का सफाया करने के लिए SCO-RATS के तहत सहयोग की पूरी क्षमता का इस्तेमाल करना चाहिए। भारत आतंकवाद से निपटने के लिए एक अंतरर्राष्ट्रीय स्तर के सम्मेलन का आहवान करता है।

H for Humanitarian Cooperation

भारत अपने क्षेत्र में humanitarian cooperation में और disaster में फर्स्ट responder की भूमिका निभाता रहा है। हमें SCO देशों के साथ अपने अनुभव और विशेषज्ञता साझा करने में प्रसन्नता होगी। हमें Disaster Resilient Infrastructure के विषय पर विशेष ध्यान देना चाहिए।

Excellencies,

[Bishkek Declaration का स्वागत ; सहयोग के लिए उपयोगी blueprint] मैं एक बार फिर से हमारे मेजबान, महामहिम राष्ट्रपति जीन्बेकोव को धन्यवाद देता हूं। राष्ट्रपति व्लादिमीर पुतिन को अगले वर्ष के लिए SCO की अध्यक्षता करने के लिए बधाई देना चाहता हूं और रूसी संघ की सफल अध्यक्षता के लिए भारत के पूर्ण सहयोग का आश्वासन देता हूं।

धन्यवाद।
