The Noida Authority had decided to allocate 866 unused flats in the first week of December. According to the Officials “as part of the scheme, there will be 41 flats for middle-income group (MIG), 47 for high-income group (HIG), 143 for low-income group (LIG), 150 for economic weaker sections (EWS) and 485 for Shramik Kunj categories. These flats are located in Sectors 67, 73, 93, 99, 100, 110, 122 and 135”. The Authority identified these 866 unallotted flats, which are lying unused for many years, after conducting a survey for about a month.
According to Akhilesh Singh, deputy CEO, Noida Authority, “The flats will be allotted through the lucky draw system”. This is the first time after 2006-07 that the Authority has come-up with a residential flat scheme. Officials said even the rates of flats have been finalized. According to a senior Noida Authority official, “MIG flats will be available for Rs 59 lakh, HIG for Rs 1 crore, LIG for Rs 37 lakh, EWS for Rs 9-10 lakh and Shramik Kunj for Rs 4.7 lakh,” adding that this will most probably the last flats scheme. As the finance department was taking time to finalize the rates, the scheme was delayed. According to Singh, “The exact date of issuing forms for the scheme will be decided after the board meeting scheduled on November 20. But we will launch this scheme probably in the first week of December. Officials also said there may be 50% reservation for local farmers, industrialists and Noida Authority employees. However, the Authority is yet to take a final call regarding this.
Meanwhile, the Authority will launch another scheme of 501 shops in its Mega Transport Nagar project being developed in Sector 69. The size of the shops is 120 square metres and meant for office and commercial purposes. This scheme was supposed to be launched on October 15, but due to the protest call by transporters and farmers it was delayed.
