The Housing Infrastructure Development Corporation (Hidco) will conduct a lottery on Tuesday and Wednesday to allot the 400 HIG and MIG plots in New Town for the proposed cooperative societies of different types and categories, mostly comprising the state government employees as was decided by the state cabinet earlier this year.
Hidco had put up the notice on February this year, inviting applicants to participate in the lottery for the distribution of the plots ranging from four to six cottahs. Officials said that over 560 cooperative societies have applied for the plots. The lottery will take place at the Biswa Bangla convention centre.
Officials said that each of the plots will have eight cooperative members and eight dwelling units while the government employees and cops will get a preference.
