JAIPUR: After failing to attract buyers once again, the Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) has extended the date of accepting applications for the proposed economic weaker section (EWS) and lower income group (LIG) category houses in its three schemes.
As per the TOI records, in the past one month, only 764 application were received against the proposed 1,448 houses. Now, the date of receiving applications has been extended till August 4.
From June 15, JDA started accepting applications for flats which will be developed in three separate schemes — Anand Vihar (zone-12), Surya Nagar (zone-14) and Kheda Jaganath Pura (zone-14).
Sources said, these houses will be developed under provision 4 A (I) of the Chief Minister Jan Awaas Yojana, 2015. The scheme will be developed on Public Private Partnership (PPP) model where construction will be done by a private developer. However, the applications were being invited without finalising the developers. A JDA source said, “As there is no clarity on the scheme, investors did not show interest. In the past too, JDA made attempts to lure the developers. However, not many showed interest in the project. Under Awaas Yojana provision, 4 A (I), a pre-meeting bid was held on July 1, 2016, in which five developers participated. But, no one turned up,” said a source. tnn
