Additionally, the number of houses in Pune and Pimpri-Chinchwad has been increased by 100 to encourage more participation.

Prospective applicants are urged to visit or to fill out the online application form for the MHADA housing lottery, and for flats available under the first-come-first-served scheme. The MHADA Pune Board has emphasized the importance of registering on these official websites.

The breakdown of available flats and schemes is as follows:
First-come-first-served priority under MHADA scheme: 2,416
