New Delhi: The government on Tuesday said it has identified 245 sites for constructing about one lakh houses for personnel belonging to paramilitary forces.

"Tentative locations based on availability of land and housing needs of CPMFs have been identified across the country at approximately 245 sites," Minister of State for Home Affairs Ajay Maken said in a written reply to Lok Sabha.

The Ministry of Home Affairs has proposed a Mega Housing Project for construction of approximately 1,00,000 houses over a period of four years for the personnel of central para-military forces (CPMFs) through the Public Private Partnership (PPP) route.

In the Budget estimates for 2010-11, a provision of Rs two crore has been made for payment to the transaction advisor for the PPP Project, he said.
