Residence Allocation (E-housing)


The Ehousing module is an easy to use scheme centric online House Allocation system, enabling employees of the Institute/University to apply for houses that the Institute/University has.

In order to let employees apply for the house, they have to wait for a housing scheme to go live.

Once the scheme is live and visible, the employees can easily apply by filling up a basic form and selecting their preference, of which they can keep a copy for future reference.

Upon allotment of house to the employee, he/she will also receive an email asking to confirm the allotment on the portal.
