Government awards Rs. 200-crore MLA flat project to Rajasthan housing board.

Construction of flats for MLAs is now being handed over to the Rajasthan Housing Board (RHB). The announcement was made by urban development and housing (UDH) minister Shanti Dhariwal during the stone laying ceremony for two schemes — Mukhyamantri Shikshak and Prahri Awas Yojana - recently.

Earlier, the Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) was appointed as the nodal agency for construction of these houses.

Dhariwal said, “Looking at the performance, chief minister has decided that work to construct MLA flats should be transferred to the RHB. The Rs. 200-crore project will be completed within two and half years.”

As per the proposal, the state government will constuct flats for MLAs at Jyoti Nagar, Lal Koti and Jalupura. “The JDA will cooperate and transfer the title of land to RHB, in order to achieve the task,” the minister said.

On Thursday, the minister also launched two schemes, where a total of 576 flats will be developed. To compete with private builders in terms of facilities and infrastructure, the RHB for the first time proposed to develop swimming pool, gym and cycle track, basketball and baseball courts for the residents.

RHB commissioner Pawan Arora said, “These will be RHB’s first ever schemes to have swimming pools and other infrastructure. The board will develop 576 flats of 2 BHK in these schemes, which are christened ‘Mukhyamantri Shikshak and Prahri Awas Yojana.”

“The chief minister has also sent a letter of appreciation to RHB team for carrying out work during the lockdown to launch these schemes,” he added.

In Sector 26, the board earmarked 20,925 square metre area to develop the condominiums. The built up area of the flat will be 706sqft, while super-built up area will be 900sqft. An official said, “The price of the flat is Rs. 15.70 lakh. The board has received over 700 applications for the two schemes during the lockdown imposed to combat Covid-19.”

Officials claimed, making optimum utilisation of the lockdown, the board completed the tender process and work orders were issued to the contractor. Sources said the new projects would revive the RHB, which had no projects in its kitty in last government’s tenure. Official said, “Unlike past projects, these houses are constructed on an economical cost on a prime location of the city. Moreover, RHB has updated itself to compete with private developers. Despite lockdown, applicants have shown tremendous response and deposited 10% of the money of the flat amount and registered themselves.
