For the first time, RHB has also adopted the process of reverse bidding method to auction houses. The mentioned reverse bidding method means that people have to place a bid at minimum discount rate to win auction and to buy house. For eg- if a person put up a bid for 40% discount and another at 30% discount, then RHB will sell flat to person who asks for lesser discount.
Residents will get one month time to submit their bid. This time RHB has divided discount rates in 2 categories i.e from 0% to 25% and 0% to 5%. The discount on flats will be assessed after examining the location, condition and various other factors. In the same housing scheme and location, RHB is going to offer discounts under separate brackets.
Upon receiving the approval from Rajasthan government, RHB will sell 7,075 constructed flats of different categories on discount. CM too had announced discount in the recent Budget Speech for FY 2019-20 in Assembly. RHB is now selling its houses at discounted rates after being failed in selling its houses at normal prices. Currently, RHB has more than 24,000 unsold flats in Jaipur, Jodhpur, Kota, Udaipur, Alwar and Bikaner circles.
As there is prolonged slump in real estate market, so many buyers are not not showing interest in RHB houses. Previously, RHB has made several attempts to sell its flats but all in vain as buyers were not interested in purchasing those properties.
