MUMBAI: Yet again, the annual Mhada housing lottery has thrown up at least 20 individuals and families who have won multiple flats. This is the fifth year in a row that TOI has spotted this trend.


Around 70,000 people had applied for 1,200 flats this year. "Each family unit comprising husband, wife and minor children will be allotted only one flat of their choosing. Our lottery system is foolproof," said Vaishali Wagh, Mhada chief PRO. However, the list of final allottees is not in the public domain. Until then, repeat winners can rejoice at their luck.


This year, ex-serviceman Mohan Bhange has struck gold with two wins in Borivli and Malad apart from one waitlist in Malwani. In the freedom fighters' slot, Anand Vagaj has bagged a win and a waitlist in Malwani while Mohan Wagaj wins in the physically handicapped category in Mandale, Mankhurd. In 2012, TOI had reported how a couple in their 20s won five apartments, some in the freedom fighters' category. Several journalists have a rare choice of apartments to choose from as well.


The family of Dhondbaji Mudholkar must have a celebration planned with three wins between them. Narendra Dhondbaji Mudholkar wins and is waitlisted in Powai under the denotified tribe code while Manoj Dhondbaji Mudholkar hits the waitlist in Borivli.


The list is long. Sangeeta Bhalerao, Santosh Gedam, freedom fighters Neelkanth and Gajanan Gawankar, Nikhil Kambli, Sanjeev Dineshmohan, Sonali Deshmukh, Yashwant Ahire, Shamal Rathod and Gangaram Gajbinkar all figure two times each.
