Chandigarh housing board sets up five sites for inspection of residential units – ET RealEstate

CHANDIGARH: Leaving no stone unturned to ensure successful auction of residential freehold properties, the Chandigarh Housing Board (CHB) has set-up five site offices to facilitate inspection of residential units by bidders.

These offices are one each at sectors 38 west, 49, 51, and two site offices at Sector 63. The CHB has fixed all Saturdays of April (April 3, 10, 17 and 24) for inspection of units between10 am and 5 pm. In the first phase, the CHB has decided to put up 109 built-up residential units on freehold basis on sale through e-tender.

The e-tendering process will start on April 1 and the bids can be submitted up to 2 pm on April 30. The bids will be opened from 3 pm onwards the same day. The CHB has prepared a list of 270 properties, including 11 residential (leasehold), 109 residential (freehold) and 150 commercial (leasehold), for sale. The remaining properties will be put up for sale at later stages.

To get a good response, the CHB has reduced the reserve price of the properties by 10 per cent. Not even a single bidder expressed interest in the auction of the

CHB properties held in 2019 as the reserve price was too high for both residential as well as commercial properties.

This time, the CHB has decided to replace the e-auction process of selling properties with the e-tender process. In e-auction, the earnest money deposit (EMD) for participation cannot be paid online. The bidder deposits the same in the CHB account and submits a proof. The payment is confirmed by the CHB officers before allowing the bidder to participate in the eauction process. Hence, number of bidders for particular property and their identity is not fully confidential.

However, in e-tender, EMD can be paid online and there is no need for any approval and hence, there is complete secrecy about the number of bidders and their identity.

In e-auction, the prospective bidders are required to register themselves within a particular period. They can participate in the e-auction process after their registration is approved by the CHB officials. Once the prescribed period is over and approval is given by the CHB officials, the eauction takes place among the approved bidders only and there cannot be any new entrant in the e-auction.

Among the properties, 51 new flats, which were a part of the CHB’s costliest housing scheme in the city till now, will also be put up for auction.

Besides, the commercial properties are also located in Manimajra, sectors 51, 61 and Maloya.

A senior board official said these properties were lying vacant from last many years and their condition was deteriorating as well. As CHB failed to auction these properties over the years, the decision was taken to auction these properties in a phased manner.

After registration with the CHB, interested people will have 10 to 15 days’ time to place their bid for the auction.

For auction of the properties, the board has fixed the reserve price of HIG flat (leasehold) in Sector 39 at Rs 1.05 crore.

Regularise need-based changes by December 31: Chandigarh housing board – ET RealEstate

CHANDIGARH: The Chandigarh Housing Board (CHB) on Monday approved the extension of deadline for regularisation of need-based changes to December 31.

The decision was taken in the board of directors meeting held under the chairmanship of UT adviser Manoj Parida, who is also holding the charge of CHB chairman.

Recently, the CHB had proposed to extend the deadline after it expired on December 31, 2020. The proposal went to the administration for approval, but the authority had asked the CHB to decide. The CHB officials then placed the agenda in Monday’s meeting.

Parida said, “The penalty scheme to allow additional time to remove, rectify and regularise the building violations which had expired on December 31, 2020, is now extended up to December 31, subject to payment of applicable charges.”

The CHB has already ruled that the changes carried out in the flats by the allottees, which do not meet the criteria fixed by the administration in their notification of need-based changes, will still be termed as violations. The board had asked allottees to apply for regularisation after paying some charges.

In 2019, the administration had decided not to provide a one-time amnesty solution for large scale violations by CHB allottees in flats. The administration and the CHB had already termed these need-based changes as violations.
Regularise need-based changes by December 31: Chandigarh housing boardUT administrator V P Singh Badnore earlier had decided to extend the deadline which had ended on December 31, 2018, to December 31, 2020.

The administration has also clarified that additional constructions in the dwelling units of CHB flats are given temporary exemption from immediate demolition, subject to payment of penal charges.

Over the years, residents of 50,000 CHB flats have made need-based changes. However, the administration had not regularised these changes and had issued notices to most of the allottees, who are demanding their regularisation.
