‘ Gamata Geyak Ratata Hetak ‘ ready to begin end of January

Local News Update: Construction work to build new houses in each of the 14,022 villages under the’ Gamata Geyak Ratata Hetak ‘ program is scheduled to begin on January 31 this year, Minister of State Housing Facilities Indika Anuruddha said.

State Minister Anuruddha said yesterday, addressing a media conference at Temple Trees, that Cabinet approval has already been given Rs.8,420 million for this. Nevertheless, most of the houses built during that time are under-standard. “Some of the houses were built on migration routes for elephants that compelled the beneficiaries to flee.”
