Maharashtra Housing And Development Authority (MHADA) on Wednesday urged the High Court to lift the stay on allotment of flats, saying that some 3,000 allottees have already made a full payment.
MHADA, in May this year, allotted 3,853 flats through a lottery. The flats, built by MHADA, are priced at rates much lower than the market rates.
One Gayasingh Yadav has filed a PIL, seeking scrapping of the allotment, alleging that software used for the lottery was faulty.
Last week, court had stayed the allotment of flats.
But the affidavit, filed by MHADA Chief Executive Officer Gautam Chatterjee, says that nothing was wrong with the system, and stay should be lifted, since over 3,000 successful applicants have paid up the full price, and are waiting for possession.
