Panchsheel Yojna is a housing scheme launched by Lucknow Development Authority (LDA) in 2011. The project was scheduled to be completed by 2014 but LDA failed to give the possession of the flats to the allottees in time. The main reason for the delay was that farmers in the region denied to give away their land for the compensation offered. They demanded better compensation along with a house for each farmer family.

After failing to deliver the plots to allottees because of delay to settle compensation issues, the LDA offered allottees to either take plots in a different location or take the refund of their money along with the interest rate of 12%. But, allottees denied both the options. In 2016, LDA resolved the issue with the farmers and construction started. But the slow speed of construction infuriated the allottees leading to them filing several complaints. LDA has not yet been able to deliver the plots.

In 2019, Depute CM Maurya alleged a scam in LDA over irregularity in delivering houses under Panchsheel yojna. He wrote that there were certain irregularities in how the tenders were awarded. Despite knowing this, LDA had not taken any action. On March 20, 2021, Deputy Commissioner of LDA Ranjan Kumar declined to share information on the current status of the scheme.
