Pradhan Mantri Gramin Awaas Yojana (PMGAY) was previously named as the Indira Awaas Yojana (IAY). The Government of India created this social welfare flagship program with the aim to provide housing to the rural poor in the country.

The Indira Awaas Yojana (IAY) was launched in the year 1985 by the then PM, Rajiv Gandhi. It had been one of the most appreciated flagship programs of the Ministry of Rural Development under the Government of India to construct housing facilities for the BPL people in the villages.
Under this scheme, a total of ₹120,000 (US,700) worth of financial assistance will be provided in the plain areas and about ₹130,000 (US,800) worth of financial assistance for the difficult areas (high land area) for the purpose of the construction of houses.

These houses have been equipped with all the basic facilities including a toilet, LPG connection, an electricity connection, and drinking water. These facilities have been provided with convergence with the other schemes, for instance, the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan toilets, Ujjwala Yojana LPG gas connection, Saubhagya Yojana electricity connection, and others.
A good thing about these houses is that they have been allotted in the name of the woman of the house or the husband and wife jointly. A Sanitary latrine and a smokeless chullah are essential to be constructed with each of the IAY houses. For this purpose, further additional financial assistance has been provided from the "Total Sanitation Campaign" and the "Rajiv Gandhi Grameen Vidyutikaran Yojana respectively.
