In the next 15 days, the Lucknow Development Authority (LDA) is going to announce three new housing schemes. Under Apna Ghar scheme, 10,000 flats for Economically Weaker Section (EWS) and Low Income Group (LIG) will be developed. The booking for the houses will open on August 24.
Two days later, the authority will open bookings for Golden Crust apartment to be developed on Prag Narain Road. In the first phase, 51 flats will be built, including two-bedroom flats (Rs 26 lakh), three-bedroom flats (Rs 38.75 lakh), three-bedroom flats with terrace (Rs 40 lakh) and penthouse (Rs 41 lakh).
LDA vice-chairman Mukesh Kumar Meshram said, "Cost of these flats is comparatively high because land is costly in that locality."
A week after, the LDA will begin the demand survey for Green View Heights, the multi-storey apartments to be developed in Sector 1 and 4 in Gomti Nagar Extension.
Bookings for 8350 EWS flats and over 1650 LIG category flats of Apna Ghar scheme will begin from Monday. The booking was to be opened on August 15 but it was deferred citing Model Code of Conduct that was enforced due to Assembly by-elections. In this scheme, 3152 EWS houses will be built at Para, 3312 at Basant Kinj, 688 at Jankipuram and 848 at Mansarover areas. Nearly 800 LIG houses will be constructed at Basant Kunj, 480 at Mansarover and 366 at Gomti Nagar Extension. Parks, markets and nursery schools will also be developed in these schemes.
According to LDA authorities, one EWS flat will cover 320 sq feet area and cost over Rs 2.90 lakh. An LIG flat will cover 500 sq feet area and cost Rs 5.90 lakh. Officials said Loan Mela will be organised at LDA office on first and third Saturday every month in which nationalised banks like Union Bank of India, Allahabad Bank, Central Bank of India and Punjab National Bank will provide loans for these flats.
