Odisha CM Unveils New Homes for Slum Dwellers in Bhubaneswar

Odisha’s CM inaugurates 3 housing complexes under Odisha’s urban housing initiative, bringing hope to slum dwellers in Bhubaneswar.

Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik inaugurated three housing complexes in Bhubaneswar on Monday, providing a new abode for economically weaker sections, particularly slum dwellers.

The three housing projects, namely Keshari Residency in Satya Nagar, Buddha Vihar in Chandrasekharpur, and Barunei Enclave in Subudhipur, were unveiled under the urban housing scheme known as Saharanchal Awas Yojana.

Keshari Residency, constructed for residents of the Shantipally area, and Barunei Enclave, designed for the slum dwellers of Tarini Basti, saw the distribution of 840 houses, according to an official release.

With a broader vision in mind, the plan aims to provide 7,000 such houses to slum dwellers, with 1,700 already standing as a testament to progress.

Chief Minister Patnaik handed keys to 314 beneficiary families in the 560-house Keshari Residency, while over 300 families received new homes in Barunei Enclave.

Each economically weaker section family now owns a one-BHK house featuring a bedroom, hall, kitchen, and bathroom. This initiative is a huge step towards uplifting the living standards of those in need, fostering hope and progress in the community.
