MHADA has decided to take back the plots that it had allotted to several government bodies and individuals. These plots were allotted almost 30 years ago.

MHADA had undertaken a project under Bombay Urban Development Project (BUDP) with the assistance of the World Bank in Mumbai suburbs during the period of 1985-1994.

The areas include Gorai-Borivali, Charkop-Kandivali, Malwani-Malad, Mulund, and Versova.

On Tuesday, Vinod Ghosalkar, Chairman, Mumbai Building Repair and Reconstruction Board, MHADA said, “The Chief Officer of Mumbai Board of MHADA has informed that the plots that were allotted to several central government bodies and also to individuals, under the World Bank project shall be taken back.”

Ghosalkar said those plots where no work has commenced and are lying vacant for the last three decades and either encroachment has happened and some plots where people have started dumping garbage such plots would be taken back.

According to Ghosalkar there are hundreds of such plots and especially in the western suburbs of Mumbai that MHADA shall be taking over some are huge and some plots are smaller ones.

All these plots were meant for housing and according to Ghosalkar, when the authority will take these plots back there may be some good news for common Mumbaikars.

These plots may be brought into MHADA’s lottery scheme where they can be made available to the common public.

MHADA for the last two years hasn’t come up with a single lottery for Mumbai homes. The last lottery that MHADA’s Mumbai Board held was way back in 2019 for 217 homes.

Most homes that Mumbai Board had put in the lottery was way back in 2011, where it had put 4034 homes for common citizens.
