MHADA denies illegality in 2018 sale of flats
Denying allegations of any illegality in the sale of 1,384 flats in Mumbai recently, as alleged by an activist, the Maharashtra Housing and Development Authority (MHADA) has told the Bombay High Court that it was well within its powers to sell these units. The state government had published an advertisement in November, announcing the sale of 1,384 flats in the city through computerised lottery.
The names of the winners were declared in December.
In a Public Interest Litigation, activist KamlakarShenoy has claimed the sale was illegal since the flats were covered under the state government’s Development Control Regulations.
He stated that the flats were meant to be allotted only to those residents whose houses were affected by the state’s several development and redevelopment projects.
