State housing board Mhada (Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority) will conduct a computer lottery this afternoon for tenants residing in the BDD chawls at NM Joshi Marg, Lower Parel. This draw constitutes the first resettlement of the residents of this sprawling chawl complex.
The draw will be held at the housing board headquarters in Bandra (East). It will also be broadcast online at http://mhada.ucast.in
Mhada issued a statement saying, “A total of 272 tenants had been shifted to transit homes and a lottery will be held for these tenants.” State housing minister Jitendra Awhad, senior ministers Aaditya Thackeray, Aslam Shaikh as well as senior government officials and Mhada representatives will attend.
The lottery was to be conducted in March 2020 but was postponed owing to the Covid-19 pandemic.
