Madras High Court seeks status report on probe into misappropriation of Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana funds

In his PIL, Dhamodharan claimed that replies to his queries under the Right to Information Act (RTI Act)confirmed misappropriation of around ₹54,40,000 worth of government subsidy funds meant for welfare schemes such as PMAY-G, the Chief Ministers Solar Powered Green Housing Scheme, and the State’s Flood Relief Housing Scheme.

On Tuesday, Dhamodharan told the Court that the funds had been pocketed by some officials who had allocated houses to “non-existent persons and to persons above the poverty line.” He further said that he had sent a written complaint to Revenue Department authorities in December last year but no action had been taken so far.
