The Greater Mohali Area Development Authority (GMADA) would soon allot the plot numbers to Letter of Intent (LoI) holders of 256.66 sq.yds residential plots in IT City, SAS Nagar. This was revealed by Punjab Housing & Urban Development Minister Mr. Sukhbinder Singh Sarkaria, after holding a meeting at PUDA Bhawan, Mohali to review the works being executed by the Special Development Authorities in the State.
During the meeting, Mr. Sarkaria enquired about the status of development in IT City, Mohali, where 256.66 sq. yds residential plots allottees were awaiting for possession. The department officials apprised the Minister that GMADA had already handed over the possession to the allottees who had applied for plots measuring 300 sq. yds & 500 sq. yds under the scheme launched in 2016. However, the area earmarked for the 256.66 sq. yds plots could not be developed due to non-issuance of environmental clearance and only LoIs were issued to the applicants who were successful in the draw of lots.
The Officials further said that amended environmental clearance for IT City project had been obtained from the State Level Environment Impact Assessment Authority and subsequently on 4-3-2019 contract for execution of development works in the area where these plots were located had been allotted and works on the site were in progress.
On this, Mr. Sarkaria ordered the engineering staff to ensure that the works were completed as per schedule, so that the allottees may not suffer any long. The officials gave assurance that development at the site would be completed within next six months.
On this matter, Additional Chief Secretary, Housing & Urban Development, Ms. Vini Mahajan said that the staff supervising the development works at the site had been instructed to constantly review the status of work and ensure its timely completion. The estate office had also been directed to remain prepared for holding the draw for allotment of plot numbers to the LoI holders as soon as the development work at the site is completed, she stated.
