DDA Housing Scheme 2017 Draw By November-End
The draw for the Delhi Development Authority's (DDA's) new housing scheme, for which the urban body received over 46,000 applications, would be held around the end of November, a senior official said.
The DDA is offering 12,000 flats across four income categories in Rohini, Dwarka, Narela, Vasant Kunj, Jasola, Pitampura, Paschim Vihar and Siraspur. Of the total flats, around 10,000 unoccupied ones are from the 2014 housing scheme while 2,000 have been lying vacant.
"The draw date has almost been finalised. It will be close to November-end," the DDA official said.
The 2017 housing scheme, under which 12,000 flats are being offered in a price range of Rs 7 lakh to over Rs 1.26 crore, was launched on June 30. After the closure of the extended deadline for submission of forms, about 90,000 forms were sold.
"The deadline ended on September 11, and the total number of applications received stand at over 46,000. The last date for applying for any rectification in forms ended on November 10," another senior DDA official said.
The draw of the lots is likely to be streamed online. DDA's Principal Commissioner (Housing) J P Agarwal said the DDA wanted genuine people to apply and ward off market speculation.
Under the scheme, homes will be provided to four income categories:
*The HIG (high-income group): 87 flats, for Rs 53.52 lakh-Rs 1.27 lakh
*The MIG (middle-income group): 404 flats, for Rs 31.32 lakh-Rs 93.95 lakh
*The LIG (low-income group): 11,197 one-bedroom flats, for Rs 14.50 lakh-Rs 30.30 lakh
* Janta flats: 384 flats, for Rs 7.07 lakh-Rs 12.76 lakh.
For the LIG category, the registration fee will be Rs 1 lakh while for MIG and HIG flats, a fee of Rs 2 lakh will be charged.
The DDA had made every possible effort to address all concomitant issues, including water supply and transportation, Agarwal said.
Earlier, Agarwal had said that the Delhi Jal Board had committed to the DDA to ensure water supply in all areas where it is lacking.
"We have also written letters to the Delhi Metro and DTC (Delhi Transport Corporation) authorities seeking transport infrastructure in these areas," he had said.
The 2014 scheme offered 25,040 flats across categories, with prices ranging between Rs 7 lakh and Rs 1.2 crore. The online response was so massive that the DDA official website crashed soon after the launch.
