The CHB had launched this housing scheme on October 25, 2019, inviting online applications for allotment of these units. The entire process had to be completed through the official website (www.chbonline.in) of the housing board.
The CHB will construct the flats after assessing the interest from the applicants. The plan is to build 120 units in the LIG category, 100 flats under MIG and 192 flats in the HIG category. Around 80 flats are for economically weaker section applicants.

The CHB will construct the self-financing housing scheme comprising 492 flats of different categories in Sector 53, under which an allottee is required to make 100 per cent payment of the chargeable price before possession.
