At least 8,984 homebuyers of the total 2,46,650 applicants will go back with a smile that will be unparalleled.
It may sound cliched but that’s the truth, the smile of the homebuyers will be because of the happiness from owning homes.
These 8,984 homebuyers will be proud owners of their homes and why wouldn’t they be proud.
They will be those lucky who managed to get a house of the 2.46 lakh applicants who were vying for the same home as them.
So what homes are we talking about?
These are MHADA homes, of which lottery Konkan Board is organising on October 14.
A total of 8,984 homes have been put in lottery by Konkan Board.
These homes are located in Thane’s Ghodbunder Road, Kalyan, Ghansoli in Navi Mumbai, Mira Road, Titwala, Vasai and Virar.
Those aspiring homebuyers even include MLAs and big politicians of the state.
MHADA homes are affordable than the homes available in the market.
This is one of the biggest lottery of homes being conducted by MHADA in the recent years.
Amongst the applicants is Shiv Sena MLA Shreenivas Vanga, from Palghar district.
Vanga had claimed that without an MLA Hostel in Mumbai when he has to come and stay the rents become unaffordable.
He has applied for homes in Thane and Navi Mumbai.
One of the homebuyers who has applied for the lottery said, “The main reason why I have applied for the MHADA lottery is because the rates are affordable than market rate.”
The computerised lottery will be held in Thane on Thursday.
Homebuyers from all over the state have applied for the lottery expecting that they will own a home of their own.
