The Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA) has decided to first ensure all basic amenities are in place before starting allotment of houses.
This comes in the wake of criticism over allotment of houses without water supply and electricity.
“Our engineering department has some shortcomings and we have decided to rectify them,” said Minister of State for Housing Sachin Ahir. “There is no point in providing homes without basic needs.”
The recent allottees were shocked when they were denied such basic facility and told to sign agreements that they were
ready to accepts flats in such conditions.
MHADA will also make provisions for free society office space, a recreational centre along with a balwadi (child care centre) along with grocery stores on its premises.
