The (MHADA)Maharashtra Housing that was known as “Bombay Housing Board” earlier was established in 1948 and except the Vidarbha region, they had control over the whole state. They work for the poor section of the society and construct housing space for them. The allotment and maintenance of these buildings were looked at by them.
On the reorganization of the State, in the year 1960 Vidarbha housing board was established, as a successor body to the Madhya Pradesh Housing Board. The MP housing board worked on the same function as Vidharbha did, except that it sanctioned loans for cooperative housing societies, institutions, and local authorities for the construction of the buildings. In 1971, The Bombay Buildings Repairs and Reconstruction Board was constituted. Tenants residing in decrepit buildings in the Island City of Bombay had issues there, so it was created to deal with their problems and undertook its structural repairs and reconstruction, to make them safe and better for the residents residing there.
In 1974, The Maharashtra Slum Improvement Board was constituted, with the motto to fulfill the basic needs of the people residing in slums, such as water taps, proper drainage systems, pathways, latrines, and streetlights, etc. To begin with, it provided services to the Mumbai City and Mumbai Suburban Districts. Then they were later extended to the other parts of the State for the better development of the state and its people.
The Maharashtra Housing & Area Development Authority (MHADA) was formed by the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Act in 1976. On 5 December 1977, it came into existence. The Mumbai Housing and Area Development Board was restructured by a Government Declaration and it was then split into three different Boards now known as Mumbai Housing and Area Development Board (MHADB), Mumbai Buildings Repairs and Reconstruction Board(MBRRB) and Mumbai Slum Improvement Board (MSIB) Under the Government Declaration. In Mumbai, 3 lakh housing units have been constructed by it.
