State frames policy for allotment of flats, plots

By Accommodation Times Bureau

Haryana Government has framed a policy for allotment of plots or flats earmarked for Economical Weaker Section (EWS) in the Licensed Colony.

While stating this here today, a spokesman of Town and Country Planning Department said that the licensee would reserve 20 percent of the total number of residential plots in the residential plotted colony for allotment to such eligible applicants as prescribed under this policy.

He said that EWS plot size would vary within 50 square metres to 125 square metres or as otherwise approved specifically in the Layout plan by the Director. The licensee would transfer all the EWS category plots to Housing Board Haryana within six months after approval of zoning plan at the rate fixed by the Government from time to time which presently is Rs. 600 per square metre.

The licensee would complete the development works of at least road, water supply, sewerage and electricity in the area earmarked for EWS plots within one year from the approval of zoning plan or environmental clearance, whichever is later. Housing Board Haryana may construct units on the transferred plots and allot to BPL applicants or EWS applicants in accordance with the provisions of layout plan or zoning plan after following a transparent procedure for calling applications and selection of eligible beneficiaries. For the purpose of this policy, the definition of EWS stands adopted as provided under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) guidelines, that is, with annual household income less than three lakh or as amended under PMAY guidelines from time to time.
