The scheme envisions construction of flats for people in two income brackets – Rs 15,000 or less and Rs 15,001 to Rs 30,000. For the former group, the flats would be of the 1 BHK type, with an area of a little more than 400 square feet (sq ft), and would cost Rs 7.2 lakh while for the latter group, the flats would be of the 2 BHK type, with an area of a little more than 500 sq ft, and would cost Rs 9.28 lakh.
All the apartments will be four-storey ones, excluding the ground floor. There will be four types of apartments based on the number of flats – consisting of 16 flats, 32 flats and 64 flats.
