Mumbai: The Maharashtra government has directed the housing body, MHADA, to ensure that under-construction flats are completed within the stipulated time, state minister for housing Sachin Ahir said on Tuesday.

Ahir said he had received complaints that even after allocating flats to the beneficiaries under lottery system, they cannot move into new houses due to incomplete works by the housing body.

"Their loan instalments are deducted every month. But, they cannot go and stay there since the flats are not ready.

Many a times formalities like water connection and (issuing of) occupation certificates are not completed," Ahir said on the sidelines of the online lottery held by the MHADA (Maharashtra Housing Area Development Authority) for allotment of around 4000 flats located across Mumbai and suburbs.

The minister pointed out that responsibility will be fixed on MHADA officials, including its CEO and vice president, to ensure that the flats are completed on time.
