Mumbai: The allocation Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA) flats to 203 serving and former state legislators of Maharashtra have been stayed for now. The flats were to be handed over tomorrow.
The Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA) will now launch an inquiry into how serving and former state legislators got High Income Group apartments in Mumbai allotted to themselves in violation of the basic rule that the applicant should not already own a home in the city.
Last August, the state government issued orders to allot them apartments, for which lakhs apply when MHADA conducts a public lottery, constructed in the upmarket suburb of Versova. But only after the applicants gave a written undertaking that none of them owned a house in Mumbai.
