JAIPUR: Beating the Covid pandemic blues, the Rajasthan Housing Board earned a record revenue of Rs 2,621 crore in the last 18 months, thus setting up an example of reviving a 'dead' unit besides attracting the attention of other states/UT, including Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Puducherry, which have expressed their desire to study the revival model adopted by the RHB by using unconventional means and thinking out of the box.
Recently, a 10-member team from the Agra Development Authority came to Jaipur to study how the housing board was revived amid the tough pandemic period.
Similarly, officials from Puducherry and Uttarakhand have also shown their interest in the revival model of RHB, said Pawan Arora, RHB Commissioner, adding that the turnaround was led by senior officials mostly in their 50s, who can challenge any youngster when it comes to working in odd situations.
In the process, RHB set two records — selling 1,010 houses in 35 days via e-auction, earning a revenue of Rs 162 crore, an achievement that was recognised by the World Book of Records, London. It also sold 1,213 properties in 12 days, earning a revenue of Rs 185 crore, which again got the seal of World Book of Records, London. (IANS)
