Central Government Employee Welfare Housing Organization (CGEWHO), was formed in 1990. Beginning its innings with its first project at Chennai in 1994, CGEWHO is now 28 years old organization, richly experienced in the housing sector. Having completed 33 projects with 14542 nos. of DUs, we are now gearing up to play a wider role in implementing the housing policies of the Ministry of Housing & Urban Affairs. CGEWHO is already following the major guidelines of Real Estate Regulation Act (RERA) and implemented its requirements in totality after the issue of notification by the State Governments. As a welfare organization, working on `No profit- No loss' basis, CGEWHO has recently taken up it's landmark project at Greater Noida, wherein 33 lac sqft. of built up area is being constructed in a multistory configuration as an ultra-modern housing complex. Important environment guidelines like Solar Energy usage, Organic Waste Management, Rain Water Harvesting, provisioning of sufficient green areas and facilities like Health Care, Education and Convenient Shopping for residents are being provided to fulfil the aspirations of approximately 10000 populaces. In addition to the Greater Noida project, CGEWHO is also coming up with projects in Chennai Phase-Ill, SAS Nagar, Meerut & Vishakhapatnam in the near future.
We are also participating in the 'Housing for All' mission under Credit linked Subsidy Scheme being implemented in CGEWHO projects wherein a maximum subsidy of Rs. 2.20 lac is provided to the beneficiaries whose income is less than Rs. 6 lacs per annum and have applied for 'A' type dwelling unit which has a carpet area of less than 60 sqm. A land bank is being generated for taking up more project in future. CGEWHO has achieved ISO 9001:2015 certification in a bid to have a Professional touch and to keep pace with modern techniques. A quick grievance settlement mechanism is being adopted in the Organization. In order to make it beneficiary friendly we have migrated from existing software systems to a latest window based dot net technology system. A marketing team is being recruited to facilitate various requirements of the beneficiaries.
Despite the country-wide slump in the real estate market which resulted into large number of cancellations, CGEWHO is determined to complete its existing projects to maintain and continue the unflinching trust reposed by the beneficiaries in CGEWHO since its inception in 1990. In the present scenario, the marketing plays a vital role of providing information to the prospective beneficiaries. Therefore, the in-vogue marketing systems are being followed to dissipate the strengths of CGEWHO individuals, who can then take considered decision. The website of CGEWHO has been revamped and now it gives details of vacant DUs/parkings in the corresponding schemes. The website also gives status of the on-going projects along with actual photographs of the same.
We have achieved a turnover of Rs. 177 Crs during the year 2017-18 and have ambitiously defined for increasing our turnover to Rs. 335 Cr in the coming year 2018-19. It would be our endeavour to sustain the momentum to get our unfulfilled tasks.
CGEWHO is committed to good quality speedy construction, transparency and value for money. E-tendering & GeM has been successful implemented to bring in more transparency. Our housing complexes are being planned with specifications comparable to reputed builders, at a much lower cost being a No Profit- No Loss Organization.
CGEWHO, today endeavors for an inclusive growth and strive hard to maintain our true identity & purpose. It intends to work with a motto of 'A team work makes the dream possible'.
I would like to place on record, my appreciation towards commitment and hard work put in by the Officers and staff of CGEWHO in achieving its objectives. I would also like to profusely thank the Ministry of Housing & Urban Affairs (Govt of India), Members of General Body, Governing Council and Executive Committee of CGEWHO for their valuable guidance and support.
