Mumbai: Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA) is hoping to finish the first phase of eligibility survey process in Worli in the next nine days.
The work that started on May 14 for the redevelopment project of Bombay Development Directorate (BDD) chawls at Worli and is expected to complete by May 22. MHADA officials met the residents on Monday evening before starting this survey. This includes a door-to-door survey by the deputy collector and at the same time will carry out the process of online transit agreements by MHADA officials.
Interestingly, in the other two BDD redevelopment project of chawls at NM Joshi (first phase) and Naigaon (five phase), even though the eligibility survey has been completed, MHADA is stuck with the signing of transit agreements. So far 260 out of 488 tenants from seven chawls at N M Joshi have signed the transit agreements. These will be soon shifted to the nearby transit camp.
In the first phase, the door to door survey and signing of transit agreements will be conducted in 14 chawls at Worli. MHADA officials believe the pre-meeting held on Monday will help to resolve the conflict of interest among the residents against the project. “We are not like to face the same kind of hurdles unlike what we have experienced at NM Joshi and Naigaon. Moreover, the residents of Worli are in favour of undertaking this redevelopment project,” stated an official.
