Shinde Government Plans To Relaunch Housing Loan Program For Police Officers | Bombay News


The state government plans to relaunch a program for police personnel under which they can obtain loans from private banks to build their homes.

The house building advance was launched on April 10, 2017 when Devendra Fadnavis was Chief Minister. However, it was abandoned by the Maharashtra Vikas Aghadi government led by Uddhav Thackeray on June 7, 2022.

The decision to relaunch the program was taken at a recent review meeting chaired by current Deputy Chief Minister Fadnavis, officials familiar with the development said. Opinions have been sought from the Chief Police Officer and Maharashtra State Police Housing and Welfare Corporation Limited in this regard, they added.

“We received a positive response from the DG’s office and the police housing company,” said a Home Office official, who did not wish to be named.

The Eknath Shinde-Fadnavis government has reversed many decisions made by Thackeray since he came to power on June 30.

On August 30, the state decided to provide housing for police personnel residing in BDD chawls as service housing. They just have to pay 15 lakh for a 500 square foot home in one of three ongoing redevelopment projects in Worli, Naigaon and NM Joshi Marg.
