The selection process was carried out by the National Informatics Centre (NIC) officials through a randomisation method without the involvement of middlemen to ensure transparency.

Speaking on the occasion, Srinivas Yadav said that they used specially designed software to avoid any controversy in the allotment of houses.

“An online draw would be conducted for the first time in the country to select the beneficiaries,” said Srinivas.

Stating that the Telangana government was constructing 2 BHKs with facilities that are not being provided to the poor elsewhere in the country, Srinivas informed that Rs 9.5 lakh was being spent on the construction of each unit.

Criticising the previous governments for providing nominal financial assistance and building cramped houses, the minister said that the beneficiaries were unable to take loans from banks and hence struggled for construction of the houses.
