Maharashtra government updates MHADA houses regulations

According to the new guidelines, apartments in the MIG category can now be up to 968 square feet in size, up from the previous maximum of 1,722 square feet.

The Maharashtra government has revised the guidelines to modify the permitted carpet area of apartments to be built and sold through the lottery mechanism of the Maharashtra Housing & Area Development, the state government's nodal agency and statutory housing authority.

The carpet area cap for the HIG category has been extended from 2,152 square feet to any configurations larger than 968 square feet.

The Economically Weaker Section (EWS) and Low Income Group (LIG) are not permitted to apply for HIG segment flats, according to the state administration. Before, applicants from these categories were eligible to submit applications for all apartments, regardless of category.

According to the revised rules, candidates from the EWS category may apply for flats in the EWS and LIG segments, whereas applicants from the LIG segment may apply for apartments in the LIG segment and MIG. In the same way, MIG and HIG flats are open to potential homebuyers. However, the Government Resolution (GR) stated that HIG homebuyers could only apply in their category.

A individual with an annual income between Rs 6 lakh and Rs 9 lakh falls within the EWS and LIG category in areas like Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR), Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MRDA), and Nagpur, in addition to other cities with a population of above 10 lakh.

An applicant falls into the MIG if their annual income is up to Rs. 12 lakh; applicants who earn more than that are considered to be in the high income group. All flats currently being built or that will be erected in the future under different MHADA projects and on land parcels assigned by the development authority will be subject to the amended guidelines.
