Flats ready, but waiting is on for VVIP's inauguration

The flats near Chandigarh have been ready for beneficiaries' possession three months ago, but thousands of Colony Number 5 residents are still waiting to get possession of the new houses at Dhanas. Reason: The Chandigarh Administration's insistence on waiting for a VVIP to formally inaugurate the scheme. Under the Administration's slum rehabilitation's plan, the Chandigarh Housing Board (CHB) has constructed 8,448 flats in Dhanas for slum dwellers.

As per the CHB Secretary Mandeep Kaur, the flats have been ready for a while but have not been handed over to the beneficiaries as no VVIP is available for the inauguration. The Chandigarh Administration has been trying hard to invite the Prime Minister to inaugurate the flats at Dhanas, an official said. The flats were ready around five months ago, but maintenance work, like sewerage pipes, water connections, roads construction and other work were pending.

But, for around two to three months, we have been ready to allocate the houses, but are waiting for some VVIP to inaugurate them, Mandeep Kaur said.
