State Govt seeking applications for flats under Nijashree Scheme
The State Government’s Housing Department is seeking applications for flats to be sold through its Nijashree Scheme. The lists of allottees would be determined through lotteries.
A concept of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, the scheme seeks to provide houses to people in the middle-income range. This allotment would be the first of several allotments, and is meant for Asansol, Siliguri-Dabgram and Haldia.
There are two types of flats – 1 BHK and 2 BHK. The price, area and application fee are Rs 7.2 lakh, 378 square ft (sq ft) and Rs 2,500, respectively for the former and Rs 9.28 lakh, 559 sq ft and Rs 5,000, respectively for the latter.
The costs for land development, construction of roads and boundary walls, electricity lines and water supply system would not have to be borne by the buyers.
There are three primary requirements which need to be fulfilled in order to apply:
No flat in the applicant’s name or applicant’s family members’ names in the State
Applicant should be a resident of the district where the flats are located
Maximum monthly family income should be Rs 15,000 in order to apply for 1 BHK flat and Rs 30,000 for 2 BHK flat
