Flats constructed by the MHADA for the lower, middle and high income groups command a heavy demand as they are reasonably priced in an otherwise exorbitant Mumbai’s real estate market. In July 2008, the authority had announced its decision to release 870 houses at Malvani in Malad, each flat measuring not more than 180 sq ft. The scheme received an overwhelming response with over 2 lakh applicants trying their luck. The houses are yet to be handed over to the winners even as they were selected through the lottery system in last month.
Mahada Housing schemes : Different housing schemes are being implemented by MHADA, as under:

1) Urban Housing ( EWS,LIG, MIG, HIG )

2) Development of Urban Infrastructure

3) Housing for Slum areas ( Lok Awas Yojna, Slum Redevelopment Transit T/s )
