Housing scam in Powai uses CM’s name

Mumbai: The state has ordered an inquiry into a bogus scheme orchestrated by unknown developers for affordable housing in Powai, inviting applications from the public for flats allocated at cheaper rates using the name of the chief minister.

The applications had been distributed to people who gathered at Mantralaya on Tuesday to submit them. The forms were reportedly addressed to CM Prithviraj Chavan requesting him to allocate the flat in the said scheme at an affordable rate of Rs 54,000 for a 400 sq ft flat. The state issued a statement making it clear that the applications are bogus.

“A bogus application has been prepared addressed to the CM in the name of Powai Area Development Scheme for affordable housing. There is no such government scheme. The police have been asked to make an inquiry,” the statement said.
