NOIDA: The Noida Authority is likely to launch its much-awaited scheme for allotting 866 flats in the first week of December. Officials said that 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. “The flats will be allotted through the lucky draw system,” said Singh. 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. “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,” said a senior Noida Authority official, adding that this will most probably the last flats scheme.
The scheme was delayed as the finance department was taking time to finalize the rates. “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,” said Akhilesh Singh, deputy CEO, Noida Authority.
Officials 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. This scheme was supposed to be launched on October 15, but due to the protest call by transporters and farmers it was delayed. The size of the shops is 120 square metres and meant for office and commercial purposes.
