The government has agreed to give the land to the CHB for the construction of 10,000 flats in the first phase under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana. The administration will transfer50 acres of land to the Chandigarh Housing Board (CHB) by the end of this week. After this, the CHB will launch the scheme by deciding the number of different categories of houses.
However, these flats will be constructed in a six-storey building. This land is expected to be given in the southern sector. Nearly 600 acres of land is empty. At the same time, about 45 thousand applications have been received for the EWS, LIG, MIG-1 and 2 category flats under the scheme.
Currently, 36,000 people have applied online for Demand Survey for EWS, LIG, MIG-1 and 2 category flats. The CHB is getting a very good response. However, more than 6000 people have applied manually in the CHB office. Any application can be made by April 20th.
There is No Charge for Apply Online:
The online application form submission is completely free, while through manually the cost of the application form is Rs 10. After a lot of fierce fighting in the CHB office to fill the form for the first three days, the administration has now started taking application forms on e-contact and kiosks.
Who Can Apply for This Scheme
Under the scheme, those people who are already living in this city on June 17, 2015, they will be able to apply. Applicant should have Aadhar Card and Voter ID Card. Also, in the name of the applicant, there should not be any house and plot in the country. According to CHB, only those people can apply whose income up to Rs 3 lakh per annum under the EWS category and income up to Rs. 6 lakh under LIG category. While the MIG-1 and earnings of 6 to 12 lakhs can apply under the MIG-2 flat which has a revenue of 12 to 18 lakh rupees.
