The decision was taken in a high-level meeting that saw the administration give approval to the project. The chief architect was given the nod to design the flats that would comprise a dinning room, two bedrooms, balconies, kitchen, store, dress space and two toilets. One flat was likely to cost Rs 68 lakh. It was not yet clear whether the board would hold a draw of lots or an auction, but any person could make a bid to buy the dwelling. The only condition being that he should not own property in the Tricity.
Officials claimed the construction of flats would start soon after acquiring the approval for layout and design from the department of urban planning. "The proposed houses would be on the pattern of stilts+4 flats and have all modern facilities," a CHB press release stated. According to initial planning, lifts were also proposed. The board was also considering to construct parking lots.
