Jalpaiguri: North Bengal affairs minister Gautam Deb on Saturday introduced a new housing project in Jalpaiguri district under which those under the poverty line whose names are not in the BPL list can also get benefited.
He said that around 1000 people will get houses under the project.
"Just because their names are not included in the BPL list, many poor people don't get housing facilities under various projects. But under this scheme, we will give housing to needy irrespective of whether their name is there in the BPL list or not," Deb said at a function here.
