Maple Shelters who recently offered  1 BHK flat only for rupees 5 lakh under Pradhan Mantra Awas Yojana (PMAY). But recently Maple has sold 30 square meter flats at whopping cost of around 19 lakhs . There was a lot of chaos after advertisment regarding this appeared in media. Fact is, it is almost impossible to provide 1 BHK flat in 5 Lakh rupees in or around pune . However Credai pune metro has made rival argument supporting Maple shelters.Hence the responsibility to clarify on , how come these flats worth around 19 lakhs rupees will be made available in just 5 lakh rupees is on credai only

No doubt Credai has full right to support its members. But the way it presented its stand on claims made by Maple shelters that may not be acceptable to all. Because aims of credai are to perpetuate self-imposed and mandatory for all the member an ethical code of conduct. But it seems that credai has devited from it.

Credai has claimed that , it is possible for a developer to deliver homes at  a cost of Rs. 7.2 lakhs as advertised by the Maple shelters. Credai also confirmed that at the cost of Rs. 2200 psf, in the fringe areas where land costs are low, homes are possible to be constructed and delivered. With the subsidy of Rs. 2.2 lakhs under the PMAY CLSS scheme, it is very possible to deliver homes to the affordable segment at a cost of Rs. 5 lakhs as envisaged by the Government.
