Grants Under IHSDP
The Minister for Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation Kumari Selja has said that Integrated Housing and Slum Development Programme (IHSDP) – component of the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Missions (JNNURM) is under implementation in 32 States/Union Territories including the State of Jharkhand.

In a written reply in the Lok Sabha today she said, under IHSDP, Central Assistance is given to States for integrated housing and infrastructure facilities for urban poor/slum dwellers. The sharing of funds is in the ratio of 80:20 between Central Government and State Government/Urban Local Body (ULB)/Parastatal/Beneficiary. For special category States, the funding pattern is in the ratio of 90:10. There is no ceiling except ceiling cost for Dwelling Unit (DU) which is Rs. 1,00,00 presently. Ceiling cost for dwelling unit (DU) was revised upwards from Rs. 80,000 to Rs. 1,00,000 from the year 2008-09 onwards. As IHSDP is in final year of its implementation, there is no proposal to increase the ceiling cost further.
