The authority can also consider launching new housing schemes in Gram Sabha of villages which are adjacent to the city after identifying the suitable land there.
Meanwhile, the state government had asked the authority to provide all details of homes for economically weaker section of the society. It had already ordered to raise 10 percent homes for EWS of the society in each scheme.
