Are you looking for information on the housing scheme details of the MHADA lottery 2014? The date of registration for the MHADA lottery is 28th April, 2014. This article provides complete details of the MHADA lottery schedule for Konkan Housing Board and Mumbai Housing Board low cost homes in Mumbai and Virar.

Owning a home in the commercial capital of India, namely Mumbai, is a big dream of many a resident of Maharashtra. This dream has been realized in reality for a lucky group of people who submit applications for the annual lottery scheme initiated by MHADA. Through this scheme, they are able to buy a home within Mumbai or in the suburbs at a price much lower than those offered by private builders. The Konkan Housing Board, which is a regional unit of MHADA, has also been part of the scheme in some years, offering budget homes to buyers in places within its purview. As per news reports, MHADA wishes to adhere to the code of conduct for the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections & hence will issue the advertisement notification for the lottery before the code of conduct comes into force.

Another popular lottery scheme is that of CIDCO, of which the details of its latest lottery are here: 2014 CIDCO Kharghar lottery

Hi, Is there any new update on this yet ? Is this just Virar or its other places in mumbai too?

Author: Vandana18 Feb 2014 Member Level: Platinum   Points : 3

Vipin, unfortunately there is no update from MHADA as yet. However, I think MHADA will need to announce the lottery before the election code comes into effect.

Regarding the locations: I don't think the lottery will only be for Virar homes. I think it includes some locations in Mumbai too, like for last year's lottery.

I will definitely put in the updates as soon as I get the requisite information.

Mohammad Arif,
As far as I am aware, the address proof should have your name on it if you are the applicant. Similarly, you should have a PAN card in your name as you will need to submit the PAN number at the time of application. I am sure the documentary proofs required for this year's lottery will be the same as last year, so to get an idea check this article: How to submit application & documents required after 2013 MHADA lottery results

@ Vrinda: I doubt a company letterhead showing your income details could be valid proof. I think you need a proper officially attested income proof form. You can confirm this by calling up the MHADA official at the contact numbers I have provided.

@ Santhana: When MHADA begins the online application process, the details for MIG and HIG homes in Sion area will be known. Accordingly, I will update the information in this article. You can bookmark this page and check back for updates later.

@ Anand: You have to draw up the DD at your bank of the amount you need to pay, which will include the EMD + application processing fee. This DD will then have to be submitted by you at the designated bank as stated by MHADA, along with the acknowledgement slip of your application.

The designated bank will be known once the online application process begins. I will update the details in the article at that time.

I want to know what are the documents required for applying mhada flats 2014 in mumbai.

Author: Vandana27 Feb 2014 Member Level: Platinum   Points : 5

Asha, when MHADA releases the official notification, I will update the article on which documents are required for applying. It is likely to be the same as last year:

  • Domicile Certificate

  • Income certificate

  • ID proof

  • Any requisite certificates (such as caste certificate, birth certificate, etc)

Note that the above is what you will need to furnish on getting a home allotment through the lottery. MHADA informs the lottery winners about the documents required via email intimation. For the online application itself, you will likely need to have a PAN card and will also likely need to fill in Bank account details. I do not think you will need to submit any documents during the online application process itself, but will need to show some ID proofs when making the initial payment at the Bank.

Hi I'm Sujit. I will be applying for this year' MHADA lottery. However, I don't have a domicile certificate. I was born & live in Maharashtra itself & so have my parents. Do I still need a domicile certificate?

Author: Vandana06 Apr 2014 Member Level: Platinum   Points : 5

As I mentioned in the article, the domicile certificate is mandatory. You will definitely need it. I suggest you apply for one right away. In fact, every citizen of India must have a domicile certificate of the State of his/her residence. It is extremely important to have this document in the case of some applications, especially for some Government jobs, perhaps to buy property, etc.

To obtain a domicile certificate of Maharashtra State, you need to visit the office of any of the following:
(1) Sub-Divisional Magistrate
(2) Tahsildar
(3) Revenue Department
(4) District Collector

If you have a local political party's office in your area, you can also approach them to guide you.

Mich & Vinod,
The MHADA website has given an update about the lottery with a notification that the lottery process is on hold. They are waiting for clearance from the Chief Electoral Officer, Maharashtra. Apparently the process cannot take place during election time due to the election code of conduct. We will have to wait for further notification as to when the process will begin.

Author: Vandana21 Apr 2014 Member Level: Platinum   Points : 3

Anybody can apply for the MHADA lottery as long as they fulfil the eligibility criteria and have the requisite documents. One of these documents is domicile certificate of Maharashtra. So if you do not have proof that you have stayed in Maharashtra within the last 20 years, including 15 years continuous stay in the State, then there is no point in your applying for the lottery.

@ Prakash: You cannot make multiple applications in your name in the same income category. I do not know what you mean by "wig" as there is no such income category. You can apply in the category to which your family income is applicable.

Author: Vandana28 Apr 2014 Member Level: Platinum   Points : 4

@ Manish:
1. If you have applied but not received your Aadhar Card, you can inform MHADA about it. I think a Voter's ID card should also be valid.

2. I do not think there is any restriction on retired people applying, as long as they fulfill the domicile & other criteria. Also, your parents/family members should not be owning a house in Vengurla or in any area which comes under the Konkan Housing Board if they wish to apply for a home of this Board through the lottery.

You can clarify the information by calling up the Helpline provided between 9.30a.m. and 7p.m.

Is domicile certificate necessary? If yes, what is the alternate option for that?

Author: Vandana25 May 2014 Member Level: Platinum   Points : 7

Answers to all the recent queries:
1. I have no idea about the percentage of amount charged if payment is made by credit card.
2. Yes, you will likely have to pay 2 different EMDs for the different flats.
3. Income means Basic + D.A. + City Allowance + Bonus
4. If you do not get a flat allotted through the lottery, the EMD is returned within 2 weeks as per what is mentioned at the MHADA official website.
5. Yes, domicile certificate is mandatory as per the lottery instructions. If you do not have one, I suggest you apply for one right away [The online form in Marathi is available here:]. I suggest your read this useful information:

My advice would be to also keep your school leaving certificate (SLC) in readiness as this will have your date of birth & is considered as an alternative now for the domicile certificate for certain types of admissions, recruitment, etc. Perhaps the SLC can be shown till you get the domicile certificate in hand (not 100% sure if this would be acceptable though!)

I am not sure but when they say "family income" I assume it refers to the income of all the family members who stay together in one home.

Author: Saji Ganesh30 May 2014 Member Level: Diamond   Points : 5

Though with no direct link to the question by Asif in particular, I don't think that you have to include your brother's income in the form. By applying for a house of your own you are implying that you plan to settle separately. Family income might include the income of your parents and spouse but not necessarily that of your brother. This is an evident loop hole but nevertheless not illegal, I suppose. Income is calculated separately once you are major and start earning on your own.

The rule clearly states "You and your spouse should not be the owner of a house, flat or residential plot of land (the ownership should not be in your name/ name of spouse) which lies in the jurisdiction of the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM)."

Since you are the spouse of the applicant (your wife) & are owning a property in your name which is within the MCGM jurisdiction, your wife is not eligible to apply.

Hi Vandana,

Please guide.

Answers to a few of the latest queries (sorry for the late response):
@ Pravin: 7th was the last date to register, 9th was the last date to submit the application.
@ Pooja: please inform the MHADA officials that since you lost your card you will be using a different mode of payment (that is, in case you were unable to change the mode of payment before the last date of 9th June)
@ Tanu: not sure of this, sorry.

Flats are available for them in Mumbai and at Mira Road (Konkan Housing Board). Please refer to the article to which I have given a link in the above response.
