A proposal to this effect has been submitted to the state government for enhancement of FAR and exemption of fees and taxes payable to the approving authorities to make the project affordable.
GHB chairman Subhash Shirodkar said the housing board has unveiled various initiatives to live up to the government’s commitment towards providing affordable accommodation to the people of Goa.
Similarly, the cumbersome process of auction and allotment of plots and tenements is proposed to be simplified and made more transparent by migrating the entire process onto a well-developed software and implementing online e-auction by giving wide publicity to the plots and tenements proposed to be auctioned.
This will enable Goans to participate in the e-auction process without having to attend a physical auction and will also enable wide spread participation by reduction of paperwork. The software is being developed by Goa Electronics Ltd.
To step up the quality and standard of work, reputed and experienced architects and project management consultants are being empanelled to design and develop various properties belonging to GHB.
