KOCHI (Kochin): The LIFE Mission housing project in Mundamveli, Greater Cochin Development Authorities' (GCDA), misses another deadline as the contractor, Thrissur District Labour Contract Cooperative Society (TDLCCS), struggles to raise funds.The initiative had already met at least a dozen deadlines, and the GCDA, which controls it, predicted that the next deadline would be in October last week.The project was due to be completed by September 15.However, only about half of the project has been completed so far.

By the end of October, we expect to finish the scheme.TDLCCS has received around Rs 5.5 crore out of the total project cost of Rs 14.6 crore so far.The major challenge, according to an official, is the rising building cost.The project is to build 86 apartments, with 82 beneficiaries.

Deck sheet concrete will be used for the flooring.
