No room for more space in costliest flats of CHB
UT Rejects Proposal To Increase FAR


The architect department of the UT administration has refused the proposal of the Chandigarh Housing Board to increase floor area ratio (FAR) of the city’s costliest housing scheme in Sector 53.

To revive the scheme and make it affordable for the general public, the CHB had planned to increase the FAR of flats. But sources said the architect department has refused to do so.

In March, the board had scrapped the scheme and decided to refund the amount to the applicants as per the demand survey. However, the officers were asked to consider framing of a new scheme with lesser cost.

A senior UT official said that by increasing FAR, the CHB was planning to offer more space in flat with the same price. The CHB will now consider some other proposals.

CHB’s board of directors in a meeting in March decided, “The proposed general self-financing housing scheme in Sector 53 needs to be made more lucrative. To reduce the land cost component, the matter may be taken up with the administration to increase the FAR, so that more flats can be constructed. Further, the possibility of some changes in the specifications and design also need to be explored. Considering that framing a new scheme with lesser cost and further possible changes may take considerable time, the board has decided to refund the amount deposited by the applicants…”

There was a poor response to the demand survey of the scheme, as only 178 applicants came up for 492 flats. The CHB had reduced prices of flats twice and even extended the deadline for demand survey. After witnessing poor response, the CHB, on January 14, further reduced prices by 5% to 7%, and extended the date for submission of online application to February 24.

In July 2019, the CHB had proposed a 3BHK flat for Rs 1.85 crore, 2 BHK for Rs 1.6 crore, 1BHK for Rs 1.15 crore and accommodation for the economically-weaker section (EWS) for Rs 58 lakh, drawing a lot of criticism.

The board released a new price list on October 10: 3BHK for Rs 1.63 crore, 2BHK for Rs 1.36 crore, 1BHK for Rs 90 lakh and a two-room flat for EWS Rs 50 lakh. On January 14, the board decided that 3BHK will cost Rs 1.5 crore, 2BHK Rs 1.28 crore, 1 BHK Rs 86 lakh and a two-room flat for EWS would remain unchanged at Rs 50 lakh. The board official had said persons applying under the demand survey would be given preference in allotment. The scheme was proposed to be made open for all
