Revenue minister E Chandrasekharan will distribute title deeds to the residents within10 days.
The revenue department has cleared formalities for giving title deeds to these families.
As per the details collected by Kochi corporation authorities last year, there are 64 families living in two colonies — GCDA Colony and Municipal Colony in Mattancherry. Of these, 41 families will be getting title deeds.
“Though the number of those who have applied for title deeds is a bit more, only 41 families are living in government land (Puramboke),” said corporation health standing committee chairman T K Asharaf.
“Kochi corporation council held in mid-2020 had given nod for giving title deeds to these families. But it took some more time to complete the paper works in the corporation office. The land assignment committee held on January 23, 2021, gives it nod for allotting title deeds to these families,” said Asharaf who is also a member of the city land assignment board.
Mayor M Anil Kumar said that the corporation would take measures to distribute title deeds to all deserving families in the city.
As of now, all the families in GCDA Colony and Municipal Colony live in dilapidated and congested houses. Once these families get title deeds, measures to construct new houses can be started.
“All these families are beneficiaries of RAY project for constructing individual houses. Now, we are exploring the possibilities of merging RAY with PMAY LIFE project,” Asharaf said.
