What if your name comes up in draw and want to surrender the flat?
If a prospective buyer surrenders his application before the date of draws, no money will be deducted from his or her registration fee. If a buyer does so after the draw but before the issue of a demand letter, 25 per cent of the registration fee will be forfeited, according to a PTI report.
If the flat is surrendered within 90 days of the issue of the demand letter, 50 per cent of the fee would be cut. Beyond that time period, the entire registration fee will be forfeited
For the LIG (Lower Income Group) category, the registration fee will be Rs 1 lakh while for Middle Income Group and High Income Group flats, Rs 2 lakh will be charged.
Lock-in period removed
The lock-in period clause, as we realised this was also a factor in buyers surrendering flats. This is also to keep a check on those elements who do market speculation.
Self attested copy of PAN card
Proof of residence
What if the names of both husband wife come up in draw?
Under the rules, a husband and a wife can apply for the scheme but if both get an allotment, one of them will have to give it up.
Most of the flats were one-bedroom LIG flats from the last housing scheme. Unlike the EWS (Economically Weaker Section) category last time, in this scheme there will be no such category.
According to a PTI report, seeking to deter unserious buyers and check market speculation, the DDA this time has proposed multi-tiered penal measures.
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.
