Central Government Employees Welfare Housing Organisation (CGEWHO) has been established to promote, control and co-ordinate the development of houses at selected places, across India, on no profit-no loss basis as a welfare measure. CGEWHO is a registered body under the Societies Registration Act 1860. It operates from its headquarters at Janpath Bhavan, Janpath, New Delhi. There are no regional offices. The organisation maintains skeleton project teams at construction sites which look after day to day operations of construction and development
The goal of the organisation is to provide quality welfare service to Central Government Employees for housing. The organisation’s schemes at Chennai (Phase I), Nerul & Kharghar(Navi Mumbai), Panchkula, Calcutta(Phase I), Noida(Phase I & II), Gurgaon (Phase I & II), Chandigarh, Bangalore, Kochi(Phase-I), Hyderabad(Phase I), Pimpri-Chinchawad(Pune) and Noida(Phase III) have been completed. These comprised a total of 8386 dwelling units. The on-going housing schemes at Ahmedabad, Jaipur, Hyderabad(Phase II), Panchkula(Phase II), and Noida(Phase IV & V) have another over 3745 dwelling units under construction.
The General Body is a constitutional authority which lays down general policy guidelines and makes or amends Rules and Regulations of the society. Governing Council manages and administers the affairs of the society, approves requirements of staff and lays down policy for investment. Executive Committee looks after the day to day affairs of the organisation. Some of the powers of these bodies have been delegated to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) who conducts the business and executes all contracts on behalf of the organisation.
The range of activities covered by the CGEWHO are multidisciplinary, but the organisation operates under one roof. It is, therefore, prudent to have professional departments each looking after its own field and easily interacting with others. Professional grouping also makes the organisation more compact, effective and responsive. The organisation comprises three directorates, viz., Technical, Administration & Marketing and Finance, all supported by an IT cell.
