After Versova, the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority plans to build houses in upmarket areas like Bandra, Juhu-Vile Parle, Santa Cruz, Ghatkopar and Chembur. Faced with a paucity of land, Mhada had started pulling down transit camps and building multi-storeyed transit camps and affordable housing. The Mumbai Housing Area and Development Authority had conducted a survey of its properties in 56 housing colonies to identify vacant plots and found that there were 51 plots across the suburbs. MHADA plans to have a mix of houses for economically weaker, lower, middle and higher income groups and the project should be ready by two years. Sources in Mhada said that many vacant plots were not available to the officials in the Mhada headquarters at Bandra. Mhada called a meeting of estate managers and senior officials. The survey was then launched and 137 plots identified. Of these 51 are exclusively for housing. These plots are spread over nine hectares.
