Transfer EWS homes to housing board, builders told

11 Sep 2018

GURUGRAM: The state government has directed all developers to transfer their inventory of EWS houses to the state housing board in a bid to make the process of allotment of houses under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna (PMAY) transparent , said officials in the know of the matter.

While earlier, the developers would invite applications and then conduct a draw of lots in the presence of concerned government officials, all allotments will now be made by the housing board as per the list of the applicants under the scheme. “Earlier there was a possibility of fraud in the allotment as many applicants would get false affidavits to qualify for the BPL category so that they are eligible for the house. But now, the allotments would be done by the housing board and all applications will be linked to Aadhaar leaving no scope for fraud,” said Mahendra, city project officer of MCG. To be eligible, one has to be a resident of the district, his income should be within the non-taxable income limit and should not have more than one property in Gurugram.

MCG had invited applications under the PMAY last year, following which it received over 37,000 applications from residents across the city. The corporation then shortlisted 21,000 applicants as beneficiaries under the scheme. The beneficiaries were then divided into three categories — beneficiary-led house construction, credit-linked subsidy (CLS) and affordable housing in partnership (AHP). “Among the shortlisted, 1,8000 people applied for houses, while the rest sought financial help to develop a house in their own land,” Mahendra said.

Consequently 18,000 houses have to be developed in the city under PMAY till 2022. Initially 27,000 beneficiaries were shortlisted however after another round of checks, the number has come down to 21,000 said sources in the know of matter. While MCG is the coordinating agency, 18,000 houses will be developed by the state housing board, along with Huda and HSIIDC. A construction company will be appointed for the project and the housing board will overlook the process of construction, said officials.

Meanwhile, the department of urban local bodies has sought applications for licences to develop affordable housing projects under the PMAY. The applications have to submitted by this September 23, as per a copy of the notice accessed by TOI.

Talking about the land requirement, Mahendra said, “There is land available in all the Huda sectors with the housing board which can be used for developing the houses under the scheme.” The cost would be divided between the applicant, state and the Centre.
