The Union government has asked the Telangana government to return Rs 190 crore which was given to the state in 2016-17 for building rural houses under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY). After Telangana government did not build a single house under the scheme, on October 13 Union government directed the Telangana government to return the money.

Earlier, K Chandrashekar Rao led state government has refused to update the Union government of its progress on implementing the scheme.  As per the reports, a target of building 70,674 houses was allotted to Telangana in 2016-17, and the first instalment of Rs 190.78 cr was released to the state. Further, the state obtained information that the funds will go to other states schemes that require the money.
