As per the assessed demand submitted by the states and union territories, a total of 1,12,95,047 houses have been sanctioned across the country under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana–Urban (PMAY-U), and against the total sanctioned houses, 84,67,568 have been grounded and are at various stages of construction, while 50,16,642 have been completed and delivered to the beneficiaries. The scheme is most likely to achieve the ‘Housing for All’ vision within the mission period by 2022. In order to ensure uninterrupted flow of funds, National Urban Housing Fund (NUHF) for ₹60,000 crore has been created for raising extra budgetary resources (EBR) in phases for rapid implementation of the scheme.

To achieve the Mission of ‘Housing for All’ by 2022, states/ union territories have been advised to ground for construction of the remaining sanctioned houses, complete all houses already grounded and saturate the demand city-wise.  Further, the Ministry is using Information/ Space Technology through PMAY(U)-MIS (Management Information System), Bhuvan Portal, PFMS (Public Financial Management System) and Geo-tagging/ Geo-fencing of sanctioned houses are being done for effective monitoring and expeditious release of central assistance.
