Chandigarh Housing Board to Launch an Affordable Housing Scheme under PM Awas Yojna

Chandigarh has yet again given a pleasant surprise to its residents by planning an affordable housing facility for them. Appointing Chandigarh Housing Board as its nodal authority to execute this fine decision taken by the authorities, they have proven the fact that the Chandigarh Administration works real hard for the betterment of its residents in any possible form it can. Taking care of the most basic facility of affordable housing, Chandigarh Administration ventured this plan out so that common people are able to have a roof on their heads permanently.

About the Housing Facility

Owning a house in Chandigarh soon would no longer be a dream as Chandigarh Housing Board has decided to launch the scheme under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana. Keeping in mind the recent influx of working class individuals from nearby states, Chandigarh Administration is taking up steps in a great direction to provide them with decent living conditions at nominal prices.

Planning a scheme on paper over table in AC rooms is one thing and implementation of it is an altogether a different story. Taking stringent actions towards its execution, board would set afloat a demand survey strategy to decide and further plan the number of flats and its size. The forms for the same would be made available for people at the office and on the official website of Chandigarh Housing Board to observe the response in the demand survey.

To confirm the outstanding decision, Chairman of the Board, Maninder Singh Bains, stepped forward to declare about the strategy involved in the scheme implementation. The increasing demand of the city residents for good housing facilities led the board to take up the issue seriously and allow construction of the same up till the fourth storey in the planning stage as of now.

Price of These Flats in Chandigarh

The scheme targets lower income groups and economically weaker sections of the society whose annual income lies between 3 lacs to 6 lacs and 3 lacs respectively. The prices of the flats made available to people would range from 10 lacs to 15 lacs for LIG category and consequently, would be halved for the other.

The scheme has been perceived as a relief to the residents who were grief-stricken by the sky-rocketing prices of accommodations constructed by the private builders in and around the city.This step taken by the Administration not only restores our faith in it but also dignifies the morality with which they work for the residents of Chandigarh.
