Navi Mumbai: The long-pending proposition to supply homes will be soon over. In the first stage, about 4,466 homes are developed by the City and Industrial Development Corporation (CIDCO) at Taloja, Kharghar, Kalamboli, Ghansoli, and Dronagiri will be designated to the police personnel whose monthly income is up to Rs 25,000 and Rs 50,000. These homes will be estimated at Rs 19 lakh and Rs 31 lakh. The online enrollment will start on July 27 on the event of Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray’s birthday. The online application process will be carried out from July 28 to August 28.
Minister of Urban Development Eknath Shinde said these 4,466 housing units will be provided under the Prime Minister Awas Yojana, which is implied for the financially weaker segments and low wage groups. “These flats are in two groups with a monthly income of up to Rs 25,000 and a monthly income of up to Rs 50,000, with prices ranging from a minimum of Rs 19 lakh to a maximum of Rs 31 lakh,’’ he noted.
Minister of Housing Dr. Jitendra Awhad said that the department had declared to save a few housing units developed by the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA) for the police personnel and category III and IV employees of the State Government. In this case, CIDCO will hand over these homes to the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA). Thereafter, MHADA will allot these homes through a lottery system.
Of the 15,000 homes, 20% will be given to the police workforce and 20% to Class III and IV workers of the state government. These houses will be handed over to employees in three years beneath the Prime Minister’s Awas Yojana at Rs 30 lakh each. In the mean time, Dr Awhad informed that on the occasion of Thackeray’s birthday, his department will launch a project to supply 15,000 homes at Goregaon in north Mumbai.
