While ‘Mission 96’ is the first stage towards CIDCO’s objective of reducing construction time while not compromising on quality, the second stage was recently done when CIDCO made a record of casting 500 slabs in record 489 days. These slabs have been cast in Taloja’s sector-28,29,31 and 37 and these are part of a residential complex under the Mass Housing Scheme where CIDCO units are given to people through CIDCO lottery.
With this achievement, CIDCO while setting a new benchmark has also paved the way for fulfilling the PMAY scheme of “Housing for All” in the fastest way. CIDCO under PMAY provides the ‘Mass Housing Scheme’ based on ‘Transit Oriented Development’. Under the scheme, flats for EWS and LIG categories are being constructed in the various nodes of Navi Mumbai.
