CHANDIGARH/GURGAON: The Haryana government said that Gurgaon's realty space has provisions for 31,736 flats in the economically weaker section (EWS) and affordable housing categories and asked realtors for a status report on such houses in the city.

It also said formalities on allotment of 14,500 flats and plots under both categories had been completed and the allotment scheme could be floated any time by state housing board and HUDA once the modalities are finalized.

Chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar confirmed he had asked for a status report while replying to a question in the assembly by Gurgaon MLA Umesh Aggarwal on the status of affordable and EWS homes in the city since 2000. Khattar also said the government would compile a detailed report on affordable housing within three months.

The 31,736 flats that are to be built in the EWS and affordable categories are a part of 208 group housing colonies for which the government has approved building plans. Of these, a total of 7,478 flats have already been allotted. Besides, the government also plans to set aside 7,064 plots for EWS and affordable housing, 4,556 of which have already been allotted.

Officials said like in Gurgaon, the department of town and country planning was planning to clear housing licences in other urban areas of Haryana too. Since September 2014, when the Election Commission notified the assembly polls in Haryana, the town and country planning department had stopped issuing change of land use (CLU) permissions for private colonizers and the ban has not been lifted yet.
