23,000 new flats to be on offer in DDA’s upcoming scheme

During the launch, DDA plans to put on hold sale of around 16,000 flats under the old schemes for one or two months to avoid confusion.

Delhi Development Authority (DDA) will come out with the 2023 housing scheme in May, said senior officials, adding that the inventory will include around 23,000 new EWS and LIG flats, mostly in the Narela subcity.

“We are expecting that the agenda to launch the scheme will be placed in the April meeting and as soon as it is approved, we will start inviting applications from May. The price of the flats will be determined prior to this process and allotment will be done through computerised draw of lots,” said an official.

To ensure maximum feedback for these new flats, DDA will do the marketing/promotion in all possible manners. “The authority will also offer the benefit of the amended housing regulation 1968 to buyers to increase sales,” said an official. According to the amended rules, any person having a flat or a plot in Delhi, measuring less than 67 square metres, is also eligible to apply for the allotment of new flats. Earlier, the regulations did not allow any individual to apply for a DDA flat if he/she or family members had any flat or plot irrespective of its area, said the official.

During the launch, DDA plans to put on hold sale of around 16,000 flats under the old schemes for one or two months to avoid confusion. Officials said the flats under the old schemes were being sold on a first-come-first-serve basis and even those having a DDA flat could apply for another.

With the addition of new flats, DDA will have 40,000 unsold flats. Around 16,000 flats unsold under the old schemes were considered too costly and lacking metro connectivity. “To improve their saleability, DDA had undertaken various measures, including improvement of transport infrastructure, construction of urban extension road-II, permitting amalgamation of flats, allotment on first-come-first-serve basis and some concessions,” the official said.

“Besides improving roads, water supply lines and sewage treatment systems, DDA has also facilitated construction of Phase-IV metro line on the Rithala-Bawana-Narela corridor, allotment of land for police stations, and opening of shops to attract buyers.”
