The new housing scheme of the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) involving 12,000 flats located in Dwarka, Rohini, Vasant Kunj, Jasola and Narela is all set to be rolled out soon, an Indian Express report said. As per officials, DDA has completed the formalities and proposal have been sent to Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal’s office for clearance. Of these, as many as 10,000 are unoccupied flats, while others are lying vacant.
“We have completed all formalities from our side and the proposal has been sent to the L-G for the final nod. We are awaiting his response. If the L-G asks for some changes, we will implement them, otherwise, the scheme stands the same,” an official was quoted as saying by Indian Express.
The housing scheme by DDA was earlier expected to be launched this February but got late because of ancillary infrastructure work like construction of connecting roads and installation of street lights. In the meantime, the DDA has tied up with ten banks for the sale of application forms and other scheme-related transactions.
Officials further told the paper that DDA was looking for genuine buyers to apply, and has,“done away with the provision of surrendering of flats”. This time, the DDA has decided to take the scheme online.
Meanwhile, DDA also plans to renovate the markets of Nehru Place, Bikhaji Cama Place and Basant Lok market. The officials said that these three markets will be renovated by the DDA after the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) are handed over to the Centre.

“The SDMC has handed over the areas to us and work is likely to begin soon. The Union Urban Development Ministry has given in-principle approval for all three projects and the DDA has also got no-objection certificates from the corporation,” an official was quoted as saying by Indian Express.
