Basava Vasati Yojana
Basava Vasati Yojana, RGRHCL is an initiation on behalf of the Karnataka government to fight homelessness. Besides food, shelter is a basic need for all people. The statistics from a survey done by Housing Department show that Karnataka has 36.69 homeless people collectively in Rural and Urban areas. Basava Vasati Yojana is a State level housing program launched by the Government of Karnataka.
Central Government has done its bids to provide the poor people with pucca houses through Housing schemes such as; PMAY (Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana). Still, many states have initiated state-level housing programs to consolidate the effort. The rich and the bourgeois can build a house to live in, in their lifetime but the people who fall below the poverty line can only dream of having a house except for kutcha houses that are not permanent.
The primary aim of the scheme is to provide the Economically Weaker Section with housing facilities. This way they will have a permanent place to live. That is to say that they will be eligible for other government documentation as they will have permanent residence. Once they have a permanent address they will be able to benefit from other schemes of State Government.
