Focus on VUDA’s vacant plots and housing units spread over 21 layouts

Minister for Ports and Infrastructure Ganta Sreenivasa Rao visited the nine-day VUDA Property Show-2013 formally inaugurated by district Collector V. Seshadri earlier on Saturday. The Minister, accompanied by VUDA Vice-Chairman N.Yuvaraj, went round the property pictorial show set up to focus on development of townships, and also the remaining unsold vacant plots and houses spread over 21 layouts developed by the urban development body.

Eye-catching

Impressive pictures projecting housing projects developed in the midst of hills and valleys and lush green environment has been displayed to catch the attention of the general public.

Speaking on the occasion, the Minister said that the urban body, which lost track of its original vision to provide affordable housing to the economically weaker sections and the middle class, has been asked to take steps in the direction and restore the original glory of VUDA. The auction system being followed by it was distancing the common man from its housing projects. Hereafter plots would be allotted by a system of draw.

In development mode

He hoped that the property show would woo the general public to purchase the 400-odd vacant plots and houses scattered in different locations and benefit by the cost effective prices of VUDA.

He revealed that more satellite townships are being planned to give housing at affordable cost. Information on 220 vacant plots in 21 layouts and 79 housing units spread in Cyber Valley, Ozone Valley, Chittivalasa, Bheemunipatnam, Yendada, KL Raonagar, Kurmanapalem, MVP colony, Adibhatlanagar, Kapuluppada and Kummaripalem areas had been displayed.

Vice-Chairman N.Yuvaraj said that the prospective buyers will be shown the sites of vacant plots and housing units during the last three days of the nine-day property show.

Bank loan counters were also arranged at the show to extend banking services such as information on loans and further guidance to the visitors.
