Pune, 15th December 2022: The Mahavikas Aghadi government had decided to collectively redevelop (cluster development) the buildings and settlements of the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA).


However, due to various reasons, the redevelopment of MHADA buildings was stalled for the last 2.5-three years. The present state government has revoked this decision citing the interest of the builders. This has paved the way for the redevelopment of single buildings of MHADA.


Housing Minister Jitendra Awhad in the Mahavikas Aghadi government had decided not to issue a ‘No-Objection Certificate’ for the redevelopment projects in the state without obtaining separate permission for the development of the buildings unless there are as many projects as there are for redevelopment in the respective area, division or district.


As a result, buildings with fewer flats or flats with lower income limits could not make independent decisions. The decision had received complaints that it would benefit only the big builders and not the low-income residents of Mhada buildings. Also, this decision was opposed by the concerned society holders.



Meanwhile, the objection of flat holders in housing projects is important to come together during redevelopment. Many buildings in Pune were waiting for redevelopment as there was no consensus on joint redevelopment due to disputes between housing societies.


Many buildings in MHADA Pune are old and need to be redeveloped. Keeping this matter in mind, the present state government has decided on a joint redevelopment proposal of single buildings, housing societies, and Abhinyas. The orders in this regard have been issued by Ravindra Khetle under the Secretary of the State Government. Therefore, the way for redevelopment of buildings and projects awaiting redevelopment in Pune has been cleared.


Nitin Mane-Patil, Chief Officer, MHADA, Pune Division, said, “MHADA has received ten applications for redevelopment projects under the Pune division. However, the then-state government had decided not to allow the redevelopment of single buildings. Due to this decision, nothing further happened regarding the redevelopment of these projects.”


“Redevelopment projects are still pending as many building owners are unable to agree. Also, no new proposals for redevelopment have come to MHADA after this decision. Revoking the old decision by the present government will enable redevelopment of single buildings,” he added further.
