The draw for 416 flats was held at 11am. Thirteen applicants who had submitted copies of disability certificates were allotted flats at ground floor. The draw was streamed live at the site of pre-fab shelters through a display van.
Immediately after the draw, the result was uploaded on the website of the Chandigarh Housing Board (CHB). A copy of the result was also displayed at the pre-fab shelters site in Sector 52.
A senior CHB official said, “Allotment letters and possession slips will be issued to the successful applicants on December 4 on the CHB premises.”
The allottees would be required to pay a monthly rent of Rs 3,000, which will be increased biennially by 8%. The total rental period would be a maximum of 25 years.
A public notice was issued on October 15, inviting objections to the list of occupants uploaded on the official website of the CHB. The last date for submission of objections was October 22. As many as 508 objections were received.
After a survey from September 29 to October 1, a list of occupants of 1,692 pre-fab shelters in Sector 52 and of 69 pre-fab shelters in Sector 56 was prepared for allotting the EWS flats in Maloya-I.
The construction of the flats had begun in June 2014 at a cost of Rs 250 crore.
The CHB is the nodal body for the construction of rehabilitation colonies. So far, it has built 12,736 of the 25,728 proposed flats. Of these, around 12,000 were built in Sector 38 (W), Sector 49, Dhanas, Mauli Jagran-II and Ram Darbar.
The administration rehabilitates slum-dwellers after conducting a biometric survey. The colonies resettled in the last 10 years include Colony Number 5, Nehru Colony, Kuldeep Colony and Mazdoor Colony.
