LUCKNOW: If an apartment in a prime location of Gomtinagar is your dream, it is time to start work towards it.
Lucknow Development Authority (LDA) will sell 166 flats in six areas of Gomtinagar under a ‘first come, first served’ scheme. This is the last chance for citizens to get a flat in Gomtinagar as the development authority will not construct any new housing project in the area due to lack of space.
LDA chief engineer Indu Shekhar Singh said, “The registration process will begin from January 27. With no more space available in Gomtinagar for flats, we are planning to bring some housing projects in Gomtinagar Extension.” All flats are in the middle income group (MIG) category. Their cost will range between Rs 60 lakh and Rs 70 lakh.
These flats are in Vardaan Khand (32), Vastu Khand (21), Vijay Khand (56), Vikalp Khand (29), Vinay Khand (18) and Vivek Khand (10).
Each flat has two bedrooms, a hall and kitchen (2BHK). According to LDA records, there were around 2,000 flats in Gomtinagar. Of this, only 166 are vacant now.
While demand has always been high in Gomtinagar, about 4,000 LDA flats in areas like Aishbagh, Jankipuram Extension, Kanpur Road, Sultanpur Road and Aashiana are lying vacant. LDA is now looking to slash the prices of unsold flats by 50%.
