NEW DELHI: Private developers can also buy Delhi Development Authority’s plots and develop group housing society projects on them. 

During a meeting chaired by lieutenant governor Anil Baijal on Tuesday, the authority approved the policy for sale of group housing plots through e-auction. The new policy allows individuals, partnership firms, private and public limited companies and consortium with sufficient funds to purchase the land and develop it. 

The owner will have to develop group housing as per the Delhi Master Plan-2021, and 15% of the Floor Area Ratio (FAR) will be meant for community service personnel and economically weaker sections.

Other decisions taken in the meeting included allotment of institutional plots for old age homes, orphanages and reformatory through e-auction. DDA’s spokesperson said that in view of repeated requests from organizations and societies for allotment of land in the past, the authority has decided to allot institutional plots reserved for old age homes, orphanage and reformatory. Till now, plots for setting up old age homes were only allotted to government departments.

The meeting also approved a proposal to convert the category of 64.22 acres of land near Badarpur Thermal Power Plant from ‘manufacturing’ to ‘recreational,’ paving the way for development of an eco park there. Two lakh saplings are proposed to be planted in the area.

The authority granted extension till December 31, 2020 to complete construction on all plots allotted by DDA in Rohini Residential Scheme, 1981 on payment of composition fees. The spokesperson also said that a large number of plots could not be constructed within the stipulated time due to several reasons, including determination of lease, litigation on plots and financial constraints.

An online scheme for disposal of 225 commercial built-up properties on a first-come, first-served basis has also got DDA’s nod. Small shopkeepers may find it easier to take shops through online system. These units are located in Rohini, Narela, East Zone, West Zone and South Zone. The list of available shops will be uploaded on the DDA’s website.

The authority also approved inclusion of Barwala and Mubarikpur Dabas in the list of villages where ‘Land Pooling’ is applicable. Parts of 13 villages were approved as Urban and Development areas.
