On December 16, the lottery for 1,384 Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA) houses is all set to be declared. While the applicants have been waiting for the lottery results, here’s some good news that will cheer up the lottery winners. Except for the High Income Group (HIG) flats, all the other lottery winners will receive the flats at a 10 per cent cheaper rate.

Meanwhile, the Mumbai Board MHADA Chairman Madhu Chavan told Mumbai Live that the final decision for the same is yet to be made and the change will be finalised by next week.

The decision came after the consumers from the Economically Weaker Sections and Lower Income Group complained of the high prices by MHADA. Despite setting the prices as per new standards, the flats were expensive due to which the people were upset.
