THOSE who did not meet the requirements and missed the chance to apply for residency at apartments in Mandalay will be allowed to resubmit their applications, said the secretary of the Mandalay City Development Committee (MCDC).
The MCDC relocated squatters who lived in temporary huts along Ayeyawady River in Mandalay into rental apartments through a lucky draw programme yesterday.
The rental residential buildings, which include 1,584 apartments, were built at a cost of K11 billion—K6 billion from the MCDC and K5 billion from the Mandalay Region government.
“Squatters living along the river still have a chance to live in the rental apartments,” said U Khin Maung Tint, secretary of MCDC, adding that living in temporary huts will not be allowed after the squatters are relocated.
“We are very delighted to be relocated to rental apartments fitted with electricity and water,” said Daw Yi, one of squatters who applied for rental housing.
The MCDC said 1,206 applicants who met requirements have been relocated to the apartments through the yesterday’s lucky draw programme. They are required to pay K30,000 per month in rent.—Aung Thant Khaing
