Earlier MHADA was expected to offer about 1000 flats in Mumbai but due to the unavailability of land the authority ends up offering only 785 flats. However, the authority is trying to buy land stock in peripheral areas but is in no position to purchase land within Mumbai at the present rates.

About 6000 flats in MHADA’s Bolinj mega housing project in Virar are still under construction. However the project may face a loss of about 560 homes because of the reservation of 6327 sq mts of the total land for a crematorium by Vasai-Virar municipal corporation.

MHADA housing lottery 2015 is expected to be launched in May-June this year but before that the authority will hold a lottery for 66 houses for the differently-abed category in keeping with a Bombay high court ruling which increased the per cent of homes reserved for them from 2 to 3 per cent.
