Maharashtra to tighten eligibility norms for government housing schemes
A new eligibility policy of the state housing department has proposed to limit the benefits of government housing schemes to only one member of each family.
The revised policy, once approved, will tighten the eligibility norms for government housing schemes. It states that individuals cannot avail benefits of government housing schemes if they, or their immediate family members (wife, dependent child and all near and close family members), have been allotted a flat in any part of the state.
The state housing department drafted the policy following high court orders. It will now be sent to the cabinet for approval.
