“Recently we conducted a test drive on the app, it is almost ready to use. The registrations should begin by next month. We will give time for the people to register and then they will be scrutinised before the bidding process. We are going to upload the photos of the properties so that they can identify and quote the price,” said a senior MHADA official.
