MHADA has decided to provide 100 flats to Tata Memorial Centre (TMC) to accommodate the relatives of cancer patients.

NCP chief Sharad Pawar on Sunday, May 16, handed over the keys to Tata Cancer Hospital chief Dr Rajendra Badve. However, this initiative to provide shelter to the cancer patients and their relatives near the Tata Cancer Hospital in Parel was taken by Housing Minister Jitendra Awhad.

The event was held at the residence of Sharad Pawar and was attended by Housing Minister Jitendra Awhad, Principal Secretary, Housing Department S. V. R. Srinivas, MHADA Vice President and Chief Executive Officer Anil Diggikar, Director of Tata Cancer hospital Dr. Rajendra Badve, TMC Deputy Director Shailesh Shrikhande.

He said each flat has an area of 300 square feet and will mitigate issues like kin of patients having to put up on the streets around the Parel-based facility. The MHADA flats in the Haji Kasam Chawl redevelopment project in Lalbaug were made available to the hospital for a 30-year period at a nominal rate of INR 1 per year.

Awhad mentioned that the objective is to give them shelter instead of spending days and nights on the footpaths and below the flyover. They should return home after the recovery.

The agreement between TMC and MHADA formalising the transfer of the flats would be inked soon, Awhad said.
