Meanwhile, despite a good response from people, the officials have stated that the response from people this year has significantly decreased in comparison to the previous years’ response.

The MHADA's Mumbai housing board will scrutinise the applications accordingly and will release the list of eligible applicants who have won the lottery on December 13. According to MHADA officials, if any applicants wish to make changes in their application, they will have to contact MHADA's Mumbai Board office.

The Mumbai Board authorities stated that the response for the MHADA flats this year has been really low due to non-availability of flats for Economically Weaker Sections (EWS).
