The high quality of construction will be the new game changer
Udaipur : Under the Chief Minister’s ‘Jan Housing Scheme’, all the new houses to be built will be following a new revolution. Now higher standards in the quality of housing including the modern technologies of construction, will be provided and made available to everyone in Udaipur, keeping in mind even families belonging to lower incomes. The ‘Archie Group’ of Udaipur is coming forward with a promise to give 620 flats for the LIG and the ELBS classes, amidst the Aravalli suburbs surrounded by greenery. The work of ‘Archie Galaxy Township’, known as ‘game changer’ in the world of construction, has begun just 50 meters from the highway in front of Debari Powerhouse. The airport is only 10 kilometres making it only 10 minutes from the Township. The township will have 420 flats for the LIGs whereas 200 flats for the EWSs.
Rishabh Bhanavat and Sanjay Banthia of the group told that their dream was that people of economically weaker sections should also get a house at a reasonable and minimum price with all facilities in it. From the process of establishing the foundation to the completion of construction, only high quality materials will be used. Based on the scheme, construction on war-footing has started with the help of best engineering skills. Under the prescribed rules of the state government, applications for this scheme will be sought soon. After the application, lotteries of eligible people will be removed. Bhanwat said that the most important thing about this township is that 75 percent of the area is left open. This area will have six towers that will be ten floored, and will be named Earth, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Varuna and Venus respectively.
Special discount in stamp duty and GST
Archie Galaxy Township is special in many ways. The applicant will not be disturbed even to raise the lump sum money for the flat. Buyers will be credited directly through the NPV loan institution in a loan account of 6.5% subsidy on a loan of Rs 6 lakh, which is about 2.67 lakhs. The registration fee has also been given a huge exemption by the state government. At present, instead of 7 percent, only 1 percent on EWS whereas only 2 percent registration fees in the LIG category will be charged. Not only that, the government is now taking 12 percent GST on this type of construction but given the 4 percent discount, only 8 percent GST will be given.
