The NRA Steering Committee meeting held on September 6 has set a new timeline to receive the government private housing grant.
As per the latest timeline, the beneficiaries who have taken the first instalment before July 16 2018 should now take their second instalment by January 14, 2019 and the third instalment by May 14, 2019.
Likewise, the deadline for grant agreement and release of first instalment for all beneficiaries identified through grievance hearing has been stipulated for November 16, 2018. Such beneficiaries should take their second instalment by Feb 12, 2019 and the third instalment by June 15, 2019.
However, the deadline for receiving the grant instalments for beneficiaries to be added from future grievance hearings and resurveys, vulnerable groups, traditional settlements and beneficiaries from resettled households will be as determined by the executive committee.
The NRA has adopted a flexible timeline as per the goal determined by the government through its budget. The beneficiaries who have taken their first instalment but have not started construction yet should start construction as soon as possible. The NRA has requested all remaining beneficiaries to start reconstruction as soon as possible because it will be difficult to extend the deadline this time although the deadlines used to be revised in the past.
