Mumbai : The minister for housing, Prakash Mehta, has announced that the Maharashtra Housing and Development Authority (MHADA) will hold a lottery for flats in October-November. Mehta said there are likely to be 100-1000 flats in this scheme.
He made this announcement when the results of MHADA’s Konkan Mandal lottery for 9018 flats were made public. There were 55,000 online applicants for 9,000 houses.
However, houses under the Prime Minister’s housing scheme (PMHS) will not be included in Mumbai’s MHADA lottery, he announced.
Ninety per cent of the houses in the Mumbai lottery will be for below poverty line and middle income groups. Mehta also said, “MHADA has run out of space to construct any more houses. Yet, we will try under the Slum Rehabilitation Act and PMHS.”
