Haryana government shows interest in IT Park hi-end flat scheme
CHANDIGARH: The Haryana government has shown interest in the construction of high-end flats for its officials and MLAs at Rajiv Gandhi Chandigarh Technology Park (IT Park).
The Chandigarh Housing Board (CHB), which has planned the luxury flats for officials and MLAs of Punjab and Haryana and for PGI, gave a presentation in Haryana assembly to speaker Gian Chand Gupta, chief secretary Vijai Vardhan, engineering department officials and some MLAs on Tuesday.
In December last year, Haryana had replied to CHB stating that it has initiated the process and the department concerned is working on releasing the funds.
For starting the construction of the flats, the CHB had last year written to both Punjab and Haryana governments for releasing their share of 25% payment. While Punjab has so far not responded to the letter, Haryana did but has not released the advance fund.
In September 2019, the CHB had sought opinion from both the governments for buying these flats. In addition, PGI had also expressed willingness to buy flats in the project.
