The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) launched a special housing scheme for flats of different categories in various locations in Delhi on December 23, 2021. The housing categories were divided into Economically Weaker Section (EWS), Lower Income Groups (LIG), Middle Income Groups (MIG), and Higher Income Groups (HIG). The scheme had been laid for about 18,000 flats in localities like Dwarka, Rohini, Jasola, Vasant Kunj, Pashchim Vihar, and Narela. According to the DDA, these flats are unsold properties from previous housing schemes and are now offered at a discounted rate . The flats are either being sold at old rates or cost in relaxation of DDA’s costing policy. The allottees will also be eligible for subsidy under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) scheme. The last date for application was March 10, 2022 .
The registration prices of DDA flats were as follows:
- The total registration price for the EWS category is Rs. 27,000 - a registration amount of Rs. 25,000 and a non-refundable application fee of Rs. 2,000.
- The total registration price for the LIG category is Rs. 1,02,000 - a registration amount of Rs. 1,00,000 and a non-refundable application fee of Rs. 2,000.
- The total registration price for the MIG category is Rs. 2,02,000 - a registration amount of Rs. 2,00,000 and a non-refundable application fee of Rs. 2,000.
- The total registration price for the HIG category is Rs. 2,02,000 - a registration amount of Rs. 2,00,000 and a non-refundable application fee of Rs. 2,000.
Eligibility for the DDA Special Housing Scheme 2021:
- The application should be at least 18 years old.
- The applicant must not own any residential flat or plot in the urban area of Delhi, New Delhi, or Delhi Cantonment in their own names, spouse’s name, or their dependent relations which is larger than 67 sq. meters.
- One candidate can submit only one application
- A husband and wife can both apply separately for the scheme. If they both get selected in the draw, only one can retain the flat.
- If an applicant wishes to apply under more than one category, the application money for the higher category should be paid.
Amendment in DDA Housing Regulation
According to Regulation 7 of the DDA (Management and Disposal of Housing Estate) Regulations, 1968, only those persons will be eligible for the allotment of DDA flats if they or their family members do not own a flat or land in Delhi. This has been restricting the demand for DDA flats to a significant extent. To allow more participation in the housing schemes, the DDA approved an amendment in DDA housing regulations to allow participation in the housing schemes if applicants or their family members don’t own a flat/plot of area above 67 sq. meters in Delhi .
As the applications closed on March 10, 2022, over 22,000 applicants have registered themselves for the DDA Special Housing Scheme. Out of this, payments of 12,153 applicants have been confirmed and are being reconciled with the banks. The inventory consists of 205 HIG flats, 976 MIG flats, 11,452 LIG flats, and 5,702 flats under the EWS/Janta flats category .
