Reconstruction of Earthquake Damaged Rural Houses (REDRH)
Funding support Prime Minister’s Special Relief Package, Government of India from the Planning Commission, Government of India Unit cost of Rs 4.89 lakh per house for 7,972 houses Total funding support of Rs 391 crore Project period over three financial years 2011-12, 2012-13 and 2013-2014
Why many traditional houses got damaged? Assessment of damage: 54,000 of the total 92,000 rural houses suffered various degrees of damage, but very few casualties. SWOT analysis: Superstructure of wooden framed houses with ekra walling and light iron sheet roof was mostly intact. But, the stone masonry load-bearing walls laid on mud- mortar and not having any reinforcement suffered maximum damage to the shear forces. Private houses with RC-frame structure with brick masonry infill and iron-sheet roof performed well, showing only non-structural damage.
Stone masonry load bearing walls suffered maximum damage
