The first high-rise housing project of Ludhiana Improvement Trust (LIT) took another step towards becoming a reality as 336 HIG and 151 MIG flats in the proposed ‘Atal Apartment’ housing scheme were allotted through draw of lots held at Nehru Sidhant Kendra here today.

In another initiative towards transparency, the entire draw of lots was live webcast for the convenience of applicants and the public.

While Deputy Commissioner and chairperson of the LIT Surabhi Malik supervised the entire draw, Land Acquisition Collector (LAC) of the Trust Neeru Katyal, ADC (G) Rahul Chaba, along with senior LIT officials Superintending Engineer SB Sachdeva, Trust engineers Jagdev Singh and Buta Ram and executive officer Kuljit Kaur, conducted the draw.

For the allotment of 336 HIG flats, there were as many as 881 applications. Of this, 283 flats were allotted to applicants from the general category, whereas 53 went to the applicants from various reserve categories as per the government reservation policy for allotment of land and built-up properties.

For MIG flats, the number of applicants being less than the total 240 flats, only 151 could be allotted to all bona fide applicants and 89 flats remained unutilised.

At the end of the draw, Malik congratulated all successful allottees and also lauded the LIT and other officials for conducting the draw in a transparent and hassle-free manner.

According to Katyal, this housing project would come up on the land measuring 8.8 acres and would be equipped with all kinds of modern facilities, including community centre, swimming pool, gymnasium, commercial centre and parking lot, among others. Notably, semi-furnished flats will be constructed by the Ludhiana Improvement Trust on a 100 per cent self-financing basis.
