Mumbai - Bid for the redevelopment of Bombay Development Directorate (BDD) chawls has been invited by Maharashtra Housing and Authority Limited (MHADA) on Friday. The two redevelopment projects which have been included in the bidding process are 35 buildings on Delisle road and 42 buildings in Naigaon, Dadar.
MHADA is planning to make the housing available in the market at affordable rates after redevelopment. Worli has not been included in the bidding process.
Case has been registered against the architect employed by Mhada. Mhada Vice-President, Sambhaji Zende told," Architect case is different, but we have not received permissions and there are technical problems cause of which we didn't invite bidding for Worli." The redevelopment of the decrepit chawls has been on the government’s cards for nearly a decade.
