According to the report, MHADA said about 65 percent of the homes in the upcoming lottery will be for economically weaker sections (EWS) and the lower-income group (LIG).
Of the roughly 4,000 units up for sale, at least 2,600 will be for these two categories.

Meanwhile, MHADA has also announced that it has decided to forego the last EMI of beneficiaries of its affordable housing scheme in Kalyan in Thane district.
These houses are located in Khoni and Shirdhon and 2000-odd beneficiaries were facing financial problems due to delay in getting possession caused primarily by the coronavirus-induced lockdown as well as other reasons, news agency PTI reported.
The decision will allow these beneficiaries to cumulatively save Rs 32 crore.
As per the information available on its website, MHADA has over seven lakh houses across the state of Maharashtra, including two lakh alone in Mumbai.
