The disadvantaged locals eking out their livelihood through daily wage are elated with Banke’s Khajura rural municipality constructing safe housing. Prem Chaudhary, a local, said, “We never ever expected to get a house. Now we are happy to live in a well-constructed home."

As many as 16 families like Prem’s family are residing in the houses constructed by the local government. As informed, each family gets a house with two rooms, a kitchen, and a balcony which has become the source of happiness for disadvantaged people.

Khajura rural municipality has constructed a collective housing for disadvantaged and under-represented communities at Khajura-3 village as part of the Terai Prosperity Programme. Around 21 houses have been constructed. Sixteen households have started residing in these houses.

Khajura Chairperson Kismat Kumar Kakshyapati said that those who are homeless have been settled in the community housing based on the applications from the disadvantaged people of the locality. According to him, 21 houses have been constructed at the cost of Rs 1.76 million.

“We have arranged residential facilities for the homeless and disadvantaged people”, Chair Kakshyapati said, adding, “The local government is becoming a helping hand for the security and livelihood of disadvantaged families”, Chief Administrative Officer of Khajura rural municipality, Bam Bahadur KC shared.
