The administration released the preliminary list of land plot recipients for the 'Binveriya' Housing Scheme on Monday. The list, published in the Government Gazette, includes the names of those shortlisted for the scheme, finalised after evaluation.
Minister of National Planning, Housing and Infrastructure Mohamed Aslam briefed the media on the progress of the Binveriya scheme at a press conference at the President's Office. The 'Gedhoruveringe Committee' shared information on how they evaluated and finalised the list of individuals eligible for land plots under the scheme.
Of the 19,858 applications received under the Binveriya scheme, 12,794 were eligible. Minister Aslam announced that applicants who applied separately from qualified candidates would also be allowed to submit joint applications, following a decision made by President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih.
Today's list includes 10,314 recipients, including people who applied jointly and as separate individuals who would receive land plots under the scheme. The public can raise complaints or inquiries about the list from today until July 15, 2023, through the 'Gedhoruverin Portal.'
The scheme is the largest housing initiative undertaken in the country. The programme received 15,164 applications from 23,088 individuals. The scheme aligns with the administration's commitment to providing housing and securing a life of dignity for all citizens.
