Update: Mhada is gearing up to launch its second lottery of this year. The application form will begin in the month of April and May for Mumbai Region. More details awaited.
MHADA is planning to come out with 1085 affordable homes for the Mumbai region & 4275 homes for the Konkan region. Mumbai region includes homes in Pratiksha Nagar in Sion, Rawalpada in Dahisar, Unnat Nagar in Goregaon & Chembur. While the Konkan region includes Virar, Thane, Mira Road & Vengurla.
A senior MHADA official said, “The rates of MHADA flats are lower than the open market and hence, people are coming forward to buy flats from us. Also the important thing is that our lands are clear. The biggest issue with private developers is that they cannot guarantee whether they have clearance for the land.”

Mhada Lottery 2016: Maharashtra Housing Board (Mhada) has already geared up to hold two lotteries in 2016. The first housing scheme will take place in January 2016 which includes 4,706 flats and second will take place in May same year which offers 1085 homes to grab.
Mhada Mumbai Flats Location 2016: The flats are located in areas like Pratiksha Nagar in Sion, Rawalpada in Dahisar, Unnat Nagar in Goregaon and Chembur.
Mhada Konkan Lottery Location: This year’s Mhada Project will includes 4706 flats in Virar. The constructions are going on in Bolinj which comes in Vasai-Virar MahaNagarpalika and also in Thane and Mira Road expected to be completed by february this year.
Mumbai Flats 2016: The category of the flats under the Medium Income Group (MIG) will be around 600 sq ft which makes a compact 2 BHK apartment and flats under Lower Income Group (LIG) are going to be around 400 sq ft enough for a 1 BHK apartment. However, we are yet to decide whether the flats under Higher Income Group (HIG) are going to be included in the 2016 lottery draw. The official announcement for the same will be made in mid-January after discussing with the housing ministry,” added Mhada’s Mumbai board official.
“The flats under the 2016 lottery draw are expected to be cheaper as compared to their prices last year. The reason behind this is the factor of providing affordable homes. Also, instead of including buildings that have got Commencement Certificate (CC), only homes in buildings that are on the verge of getting an Occupation Certificate (OC) in the next six months will be included to avoid any delay in possession,” said an official from Mhada’s Mumbai board.
Mhada Virar, Thane & Mira Road Flats 2016: Meanwhile, the Konkan board of Mhada will announce 4,000 affordable homes in Virar, Thane and Mira Road in January. “The flats are going to be available only under the LIG and MIG category. The area of LIG is going to be 484 sq ft and the area of MIG will be of 861 sq ft,” said an official from Mhada’s Konkan board.
Last year the Mhada flats prices of Virar Bolinj area was higher than what the private builders were offering in that vicinity which resulted in poor response from the applicants. For 2016 Mhada will look to correct the prices and offer low cost homes. “We will try to keep the price as low as possible so that more people apply for them,” said Mhada officer SS Zende
He also said “We will undertake the housing project at Bolinj, where there is a huge tract of land. One and 2 BHK (bedroom-hall-kitchen) flats will be built in several phases,”
SS Zende also said For MIG, the carpet area can go up to 600 sq ft, so in this we can have a 2-BHK flat easily. For the next lottery, we will have 2-BHK flats for MIG too.” Only 1 BHK flats are available in MIG section.
