Telangana’s 2BHK scheme
The scheme which is also known as the Double Bedroom Housing scheme aims to make Hyderabad slum-free by providing free-of-cost housing to poor people.
The houses are allotted to the beneficiaries who have to apply online through Mee Seva. The selected beneficiaries not only get the house but registration is also done in their names by the government.
In order to construct the 2BHK houses, government lands are utilized.
