MHADA Konkan Board: No applications for 1,736 out of 9,018 houses

While this is the biggest lottery in the history of MHADA, the housing authority may face a big blow as a larger audience has shown disinterest towards the MHADA Konkan Board scheme and haven’t applied for it.

Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority’s (MHADA) housing scheme is prevalent amongst the inhabitants of the state due to its affordable rates. However, this year it has received a cold response regarding its Konkan Board houses and the list of applicants also has been released by MHADA. Out of the 9,018 flats, there has been no application for 1,738 houses.

The people have shown no interest in applying for flats in Virar-Bolinj locality along with the houses under the Pradhan Mantri Aawas Yojana (PMAY) situated in Thane district.

In which, the houses reserved for MHADA employees, artists, former public representatives, state government employees, journalists, ex-soldiers, relatives of dead soldiers in the defence forces, people disabled in war, and blind-disabled groups, have not received much response. Therefore, whatever response has been received, has come from the general public, scheduled castes and scheduled tribes.

While this is the biggest lottery in the history of MHADA, the housing authority may face a big blow as a larger audience has shown disinterest towards the Konkan Board scheme and haven’t applied for it. Till now, 55,324 applications have been submitted for Konkan Board's 9,018 houses and the lottery for the same has been scheduled on August 25.

However, MHADA will distribute all the houses amongst the people on the waiting list except for the houses set aside for special social reservation. Despite this, the fact that more than a thousand flats being unapplied will be a matter of concern for the housing authority.

Here’s a list of unapplied flats:
