The state government set up the Chhattisgarh Housing Board (CGHB) in 2004, with an aim to provide affordable housing to the various sections of people. Constituted under the Chhattisgarh Housing Board Act, 1972, the Chhattisgarh Housing Board (छत्तीसगढ़ गृह निर्माण मंडल) was started as an autonomous body. The CG Housing Board has formulated and executed various housing schemes in Chhattisgarh. The CGHB has, in fact, launched specialised housing schemes for different income groups, so that every individual of the state can avail of housing facilities at affordable prices.
CGHB housing schemes for EWS and LIG buyers
While catering to the housing needs of everyone, the CGHB has people from the economically weaker sections (EWS) and lower-income group (LIG) as its key target group.
This is reflected in the fact that since its inception, the CGHS has built 1,02,113 houses and 85% of these houses have been built for people belonging to the EWS and the LIG categories.
The specialised housing schemes meant for these sections of people include the Vihar Yojna, the Atal Awas Yojna and the Deendayal Awas Yojna.
