    1. No, that is not possible. If your salary slip shows like that, then it is possible.

  4. PSK, no of course not. If you are in the high income group you definitely cannot apply for a middle income group home. Remember that you will have to mention your income when you fill in the form & probably will have to show some proof later if asked for.

  10. i have got govt fellowship for 5 years (Rs.16,000/month). So can I apply for it?
    OR
    Can I apply on the base of my father's income?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Rohan, I don't think a fellowship = income. A fellowship is something which is awarded & is a monetary award. It is not something you are earning through a job or self-employed venture. An income means a monetary amount which you get for working for somebody or for your own self (own business). You can clarify from the helpline nos. or consult a Tax professional/C.A. if a fellowship is considered to be part of income.

    1. Please read the "Declaration" at Sr.No.14 in the online application form. There it is clearly stated in the last paragraph: "That I will produce to the department within the prescribed time limit the requisite prescribed documents e.g. Certificate of age/certificate of income/affidavit, Domicile certificate of stay in Maharashtra State, Certificate of caste or other reserved categories and such other documents as may be found necessary from the appropriate competent Authority as and when called for to do so, for determination of my eligibility"

      ~ that is why you should read every bit of the online application form BEFORE you check mark the box "I Agree" at the end!

    example

    can iapply for high income flats of gorai and boriwali

    1. What MHADA states is "Applicant cannot apply more than one application in one reservation category in same code number. If so found, such all applications will be summarily rejected before lottery"
      - So I suppose it means that if it is DIFFERENT CODE NUMBER in same reservation category (in your case HIG) you can apply perhaps. It is best to confirm this at the helpline nos otherwise needlessly all your applications will get rejected.

    1. You can apply if you fulfil this criteria: You should submit a Domicile Certificate as proof that you have had 15 years continuous stay in the limits of Maharashtra State in the last 20 years (this rule is exempt for reservation category of Central Govt. employees). If after marriage you were no longer staying in Maharashtra then the "15 years continuous stay in the last 20 years" criteria will not be fulfilled by you since after 2000 you have shifted out of the State. So that means for the last 12 years you have not stayed in Maharashtra at all.

  28. Hi, My mother wish to apply for this lottery. But she does not have a proper income. She stays with my father (who is also retired) She gets her pension and we three brothers send them money. Will that be considered as their income. She has all the other documents clear. IS she eligible?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I did not see any option for retired people/no income in the application form. What I think your mother can do is in the box for 10.1 'Details of Service" write homemaker & retired spouse and put in "0" for 11.1, 11.2 and 11.3. However, I am not sure of this. It could be that her pension can be considered as income + even your father must be getting similar pension? You could clarify this directly from the MHADA officials at the helpline nos. I have given and also consult a Chartered Accountant about what exactly is construed as income. Also, I doubt the money you and your brothers send your parents can be considered as their income. That is your income sent to them. Your mother should be eligible even if she does not have her own income.

    1. Hi SM, "haven't been working sometime now" refers to how long exactly? What MHADA is asking for is details of financial year from 01-04-2011 to 31-03-2012. They state: the average monthly income is worked out on the basis of your total income during the financial year from 01-04-2011 to 31-03-2012, divided by 12.

  40. Hi Ganesh,

    We do not hold any property in the Mumbai/Konkan region and we wanna apply for an HIG flat @ Powai. Our total family income is approx. 87,000/month (Mine- 41,000, Brother - 40,000, Father - 6,000 thru pension, he is an Ex-Navy)

    Request your guidance on the following scenarios :

    1) The salary mentioned above is inclusive of HRA+Travel Allo., which means that individually salary amounts to less then 40,001. In such a situation can me or my brother apply for an HIG flat as a primary applicant and a co-applicant vice-versa, also considering the fact that the family income is 87,000/month.

    2) Can my father apply under Ex-Serv. quota for an HIG flat, considering the fact his pension is 6,000 and the family income is 87,000/month.

    3)As I have mentioned earlier that the salary mentioned Rs.41000/- above is inclusive of HRA+Travel Allowance, which means that salary amounts to less then 40,001. In such a situation can I apply for an HIG flat considering the fact that the family income is 87,000/month.

    4) In case if I do not meet the HIG criteria, then can I apply for 2 different schemes under MIG.

    Thanks, ur insights r very helpful.

    Cheers !!!

    1. 1. From what I can understand as per the criteria, it is not individual salary alone that is considered but the average monthly income of family. This means all your salaries collectively should be considered, in which case you do come in the HIG bracket whether it is you, your brother or your father who is the applicant.

      2. Yes, your father can apply under the ex-servicemen quota (provided of course by Navy you mean Indian Navy & not some foreign navy). There are 3 tenements at Powaii reserved for ex-servicemen and their dependents (as per info. given in advt. from which I have taken the details). It is up to you to decide of course in whose name you wish to apply.

      Do confirm from the helpline nos. to clear your doubts since I am neither a MHADA official nor some financial expert!
