A delegation of BDD chawl residents along with the BDD chawl redevelopment committee recently met Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray at Sahyadri Guest House. During the meeting, the Chief Minister ordered the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA) to speed up the reconstruction work for BDD chawl residents. 

Alongside, CM Thackeray has directed MHADA to conduct the lottery draw for 260 BDD chawl residents at N.M. Joshi Marg on March 15. In addition to this, the lottery for 3,835 houses, which are ready for possession will be held on March 1. These 3835 houses are located in the defunct Bombay Dyeing Mills, Srinivas Mills and Bombay Dyeing Spring Mills.

The meeting which was headed by CM Uddhav Thackeray was also attended by Eknath Shinde, Aaditya Thackeray, Anil Parab, Arvind Sawant, Ajoy Mehta, Sachin Ahir along with other departmental heads.

Likewise, MHADA will conduct a lottery for another 1, 244 houses obtained from the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) on April 1. In the meantime, CM Thackeray also ordered the housing authority to shift the government employees living in BDD Chawls to transit camps.

The CM also instructed MHADA to begin the work for the redevelopment of BDD chawls in Naigaon, Sewri, and Worli.

The housing authority had moved 260 residents to transit camps out of the 800 BDD chawl residents at N.M. Joshi Marg as a part of its first phase of reconstruction. However, the remaining residents are yet to receive a proper option for residence. Therefore, the government has ordered the housing authority to draw a lottery for the residents shifted to transit camps.

The aim behind allotting the houses is to help build confidence among tenants who are yet to vacate their existing houses, eventually speeding up the redevelopment project. The lottery is going to be announced on March 15 and State Environment Minister, Aaditya Thackeray will draw out the lottery.
