About Mhada Lottery Scheme 2018
The Mhada offers a total of over 1,384 units for sale in 2018, as against the 819 units in 2017. It had reserve 60 per cent of the units for poorer sections. Under the scheme 2017, the authority had opted for a ratio of 60:40 for affordable housing and HIG homes. It received much criticism for offering only a few houses for the economically weaker section.
Pricing: EWS flats will cost less than Rs 20 lakh, LIG from Rs 20-35 lakh, MIG Rs 35-60 lakh and HIG apartments from Rs 60 lakh to Rs 5.8 crore. Buyers are required to pay stamp duty over and above the cost of the unit. Although the rates are somewhat lower than properties by private builders, experts opine that the state government should take steps to reduce taxes and subsidise these houses.
The agency has decided to offer certain housing units that were returned by previous allottees at 30-70 percent lower ready reckoner rates. Units meant for the economically weaker sections (EWS) will be sold at 30 per cent of the ready reckoner rate while homes meant for the low-income category will be sold at 50 per cent of RR. Units meant for the middle-income category will cost buyers 60 per cent of the RR rate while the flats meant for the high-income group will come for 70 per cent of the RR.
