Mera Ghar scheme has been introduced by Prime Minister Imran Khan to help low incomed group to own a house.
Prime Minister Imran Khan said Friday that his government’s scheme of subsidised loans for house construction would not only help the low-income group to own a house but also boost the national economy through enhanced construction activity. He said this is the first time that poor and low income families in the country will have their own homes.
The prime minister, addressing an event marking the approval of over Rs100 billion housing construction loans by private banks under Mera Pakistan Mera Ghar Scheme, the prime minister said the previous governments never thought of extending such a facility to the common man.
“This is a great moment for Pakistan because we are heading on the path which we should have opted way earlier,” the prime minister said. Appreciating the Finance Advisor Shaukat Tarin, State Bank Governor Raza Baqir and Naya Pakistan Housing Chairman Anwar Ali Hyder for their efforts, the prime minister particularly lauded the banks for mending their attitude toward the common man who otherwise used to consider himself an alien in a westernized atmosphere of the banks.
He said the salaried class never had the resources to buy a house but no one ever thought to find out the ways to support them to have the facility.
