Vadodara Municipal Corporation (VMC) is all set to come up with the biggest scheme for housing in Kishanwadi area of the city for the economic weaker sections of the society. As a part of the project, over 2,600 houses will be constructed at Kishanwadi.
The housing scheme will come up under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) at Sanjaynagar in Warasiya. Houses of 30 square metres are to be provided to slum dwellers or those staying in unauthorised settlements will be provided shelter at the site.
The 2,637 houses that will come up at the site include 1,841 units for residents of Sanjaynagar itself; while the remaining houses will be used by the civic body for resettlement of residents of other such pockets in the city.
The tender brought out by the civic body made it mandatory for the realtor take up the project to make 1,841 houses for Sanjaynagar residents and another parcel of 698 houses. Beyond this, the developer could either pay a premium to the civic body or construct additional houses.
The bid received by the civic body by a consortium of Narayan Realty Pvt Ltd and Sai Ruchi and DMC Infra Developers has proposed to make an additional 98 units for the project under PPP mode.
