Task Force for Improving Design & Quality of IAY Houses
Design & Quality of Houses
Efforts should be made to ensure that the IAY house is a pucca one with permanent walls and permanent roofing.
Each State Government is required to finalize type designs for the IAY house along with technical and material specifications based on the above principles.
For all type designs approved by the State Government, the State Government should take responsibility and train sufficient number of masons and other mechanics for execution of the house as per the type designs.
Cluster approach is to be followed to facilitate better supervision, convergence of schemes and economies in purchase.
In addition to providing sanitary latrine in every house by dovetailing funds from Total Sanitation Campaign (TSC), IAY scheme should also have convergence with DWS for providing drinking water, with Rajiv Gandhi Gramin Vidyutikaran Yojana for providing free electricity connection, with Insurance companies for Jan Shree/Aam Admi Bima and beneficiaries should be encouraged to use clean fuel as well as have kitchen gardens.

Release of Funds
The funds should be released either in two or three instalments. Ideally, the funds should be distributed to the beneficiaries in two instalments, first instalment with the sanction order and the second instalment when the construction reaches the lintel level.
Technical Supervision, Monitoring & Transparency
Technical supervision shall be provided at least at the foundation and the roof laying stages.
An effective complaint Monitoring System with adequate staff should be set up at the state level which can visit, independent of the regular execution wing and give a report to the implementing agencies about the short-comings/shortfalls, for effective redressal.
System of social auditing of the Scheme shall be introduced by the State Governments.
