A mega housing complex for policemen is all set to be inaugurated by Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Monday.
The complex, with 364 LIG (lower income group) apartments, has been constructed in Police Lines on MG Road by the Haryana Police Housing Corporation at a budget of Rs. 52.89 crore.
The state government had sanctioned the flats following acute shortage of government accommodation for police personnel in the Millennium City and now these houses are ready for occupation.
There are a total of 13 towers in the complex and the 8-storeyed earthquake- resistant buildings have stilt car parking and seven residential floors.
Each floor has four houses and hence each tower has 28 houses. One tower has been allocated for non-gazetted officers, including assistant sub-inspectors and sub-inspectors while the rest 12 towers will house constables and head constables.
According to CR Bishnoi, executive engineer of the police housing corporation, the covered area of houses meant for non-gazetted officers is 838 sq ft while the other flats are 654 sq ft each.
In addition, four houses for IPS officers and four for ACPs have also been constructed in Police Lines.
