In WB Bangla Awas Yojana 2020, West Bengal Government is going to provide Free Houses for Sanatan (Hindu) Brahmin Priests. Around 8,000 poor brahman pujari working in temples (mandirs) will get new homes under the flagship Banglar Awas Yojna housing scheme. In addition to this, a monthly allowance of Rs. 1,000 per month will be provided to hindu priests. Bangla Awas Yojana is a part of the Pradhan Mantri Gramin Awas Yojana flagship housing scheme in West Bengal. Govt. will hand over these houses to the people on a specified date which is to be announced soon.

The decision to provide free homes to Sanatan Brahmin Priests under WB Bangla Awas Yojana 2020 was taken ahead of the assembly polls in 2021. The state govt. had earlier provided land to the Sanatan Brahmin sect to set up an academy at Kolaghat. Many priests in this sect are financially weak. So the govt. has decided to help such hindu priests by providing them with an allowance of Rs. 1,000 per month and also free housing under the state government’s housing scheme.

The state govt. of West Bengal will also distribute sanction certificates to beneficiaries on “Banglar Awas Bitaran Divas”.
