Mumbai: The Mumbai Board of MHADA has given an extension to the winners of the 2020 draw of mill workers and their heirs to submit documents. This is an extension of 30 days and now the workers and heirs will be able to submit documents till October 9.
On March 1, 2020, 3,894 houses were erected on the site of Bombay Dyeing Textile Mill, Bombay Dyeing Spring Mill and Srinivasa Mill. The process of determining the eligibility of the winning workers-heirs in this draw is underway. For this, documents are being collected from them through Mumbai District Central Bank. The draw has been postponed by the oversight committee. However, as it takes a long time to confirm the eligibility, the work of confirmation of eligibility is being completed till the suspension is lifted. The board has also clarified that the houses will not be handed over unless the eligibility confirmation is met and the moratorium is lifted.
According to the first notification, the winning workers and heirs have been given a period of 60 days from July 12 to September 9. The deadline expired on September 9 and many have not yet submitted the documents. During the Coronation period, elderly workers, village workers could not submit documents. Therefore, the deadline for submission of documents has been extended by 30 days, informed Yogesh Mhase, Chief Officer, Mumbai Board.
‘Submit documents on time’
According to the extension, workers-winners will now be able to submit documents till October 9. Some of the winners of this draw did not receive first notice. The first notices have been returned from the postal department for a number of reasons. The concerned winners should bring the letter to MHADA Bhavan and submit the documents in time, appealed Mhase.
