PM Modi - light house projects

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday reviewed the Lighthouse projects (LHP) in a unique way. He reviewed the progress of these projects across the country via drones.

PM Modi had launched the Lighthouse projects on 1st January 2021, to use new technology to complete housing projects faster while making them more resilient.

The ongoing project in Indore will not have brick and mortar walls, instead they will use the prefabricated Sandwich Panel system while in Rajkot, they will be built using French technology and have monolithic concrete construction technology using tunnel and the house will be more capable of withstanding disasters.

Canada’s technology is being used in Lucknow, which will not require plaster and paint and will use the entire walls already prepared to build houses faster.

In Chennai, US and Finland technologies will use the Precast Concrete system, which will construct the house faster and cheaper.

In Ranchi houses will be built using Germany’s 3D construction system. Houses are being built in Agartala with the steel frames using New Zealand’s technology which can withstand major earthquake risk.
