The 2017 housing scheme, which offers the 12,000 flats, ranging from close to 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. DDA’s Principal Commissioner (Housing) J P Agarwal said the DDA wants genuine people to apply and ward off market speculation.
The four categories of houses are – HIG (high-income group) flats priced between Rs 53.52 lakh and Rs 126.81 lakh; MIG (middle-income group) flats ranging from Rs 31.32 lakh to Rs 93.95 lakh; LIG (low-income group)/one-bedroom flats ranging from Rs 14.50 lakh to Rs 30.30 lakh; and Janta flats ranging from Rs 7.07 lakh to Rs 12.76 lakh.

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 DDAs official website crashed soon after the launch. The one-bedroom flats were offered in Dwarka, Rohini, Narela and Siraspur areas.
“Yes, some areas like Narela, Rohini, have connectivity issues, and some of flats need repair, but before allotting the flats, we will make them fit to move in as well,” Agarwal said. On June 28, he had said that the Delhi Jal Board has 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 authorities seeking transport infrastructure in these areas,” he had said.
