The Maharashtra government has flattened the surface for the redevelopment of two unsound buildings of Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA). There are around 25 dilapidated buildings of Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority.
Since past one year, the plan for the redevelopment of these buildings was pending with MHADA. There are minimum 56 MHADA housing colonies in city and suburbs and most of these colonies are over 30-years old in the unsound state. The authority is set to give permission to these redevelopment projects in phase wise.
MHADA official said, “Most of these structures have cracks on them and are in immediate need of a structural audit. The state government has made changes in the Development Control Regulation (DCR) (33) clause. This change has assured a flat measuring 376 square meters to the residents.”
The series of meetings was held by the city developers with the concerned housing societies to make out plans for their redevelopment of these housing societies after the changes in redevelopment policy.
Due to the massive response to the new policy, minimum 25 applications looking for redevelopment have been already received.
