New Co-operative Housing Authority proposed in the State of Maharashtra

Maharashtra government is contemplating to introduce a new Co-operative Housing Authority (CHA) to regulate Housing Societies in the State, according to Co-operative Minister Harshavardhan Patil.

“A comprehensive housing authority needs to be introduced as there are over 75,000 Housing Societies in the State of Maharashtra. Even in Rural areas, Housing Societies are coming up in large numbers,” Patil said.

He said housing conventions would be organized before the members of Housing Federations in Mumbai, Nagpur, Pune and Pimpri-Chinchwad to create awareness about the importance of such an authority.

“By December this year the Housing Authority would be proposed. Before that four housing conventions would be organized in Mumbai,” he said.

Similarly, two Housing Conventions would be organized at Pune and Pimpri - Chinchwad and one in Nagpur, he added.
