About the Organisation:
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 Organisation at the Head Office of the CGEWHO functions on the following philosophy: 1. All the works, be it civil construction, electrical, mechanical, developmental or planning, are contracted out to outside parties.
2. Firms of Architects are engaged for providing professional services.
3. Central procurement of materials for projects is confined to cement and steel only.
4. Field Committee/Project Teams are set up for each project, to supervise the work. These teams are responsible to the Chief Executive Officer of the CGEWHO.
5. Other professionals, like legal advisor, structural consultants, soil consultants etc. are engaged on part time basis or piece meal basis, as the situation demands.
6. A reputed firm of Auditors is appointed to undertake concurrent audit of accounts of the organisation.
Housing Scheme: A housing project, when planned and duly costed for different type of dwelling units, is offered to the eligible Central Government Employees as a `Housing Scheme’.

After one year, nothing could be awarded by the Govt. to employees on the recommendation of NAC, then what is the necessity to set up such committee. Moreover, the sub-committee for MACP is also found to be useless as they are doing nothing but sitting over the issue.
