Mhada Approves Six Housing Proposals; Mumbai To See Over 6 L New Homes
Mumbai will soon have a fresh supply of over six lakh homes as the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (Mhada) has given various kind of approvals to six proposals. The Mhada was made the planning authority of over 56 colonies with 114 layouts and also, the homes being constructed under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana-Urban (PMAY-U).
Under this, the authority received over 60 proposals and it has now given an Occupation Certificate to Trimurti Cooperative Society in Kurla and five others have been granted various other permissions, including issuance of Intimation of Disapproval (IOD), No Objection Certificates (NOC), among others.
According to the Mhada, these 114 layouts have over 2.10 lakh residents and if all of these are redeveloped, over six lakh new houses could be constructed.
It was only after the Mhada was given the status of planning authority of redevelopment projects that work has picked up pace and the authority has received an overwhelming response. With Mhada giving approvals to projects that have been stuck at various levels for a long time, these will be able to see the light of the day. This would also help fasten the redevelopment process of many structures that are in a dilapidated stage in Mumbai.
Reports also suggest that the Mhada may soon have an online process to file for approvals.
