The draw of lots for the Delhi Development Authority’s (DDA’s) Housing Scheme 2017 is slated to be held in the Vikas Sadan’s Auction Hall in New Delhi on November 30, 2017, the Authority said.
The DDA has received 46,182 registrants for the housing scheme, which offers 12,617 flats across four income categories, located in Rohini, Dwarka, Narela, Vasant Kunj, Jasola, Pitampura, Paschim Vihar and Siraspur.
The break-up of flats are: HIG – 85; MIG – 403; LIG – 11,757; and Janta – 372. Of the total number of flats, around 10,000 unoccupied ones are from the 2014 housing scheme, while 2,000 have been lying vacant. The draw will be web-streamed live. The general public can view the live telecast of the draw online at http://webcast.gov.in/dda, he said. Interested applicants can also visit the DDA headquarters for viewing the screening of the draw.
The 2017 housing scheme, which offers the 12,000 flats, ranging from close to Rs seven lakhs to over Rs 1.26 crores, was launched on June 30, 2017. After the closure of the extended deadline for submission of forms, about 90,000 forms were sold. “The deadline ended on September 11, 2017 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, 2017,” another senior DDA official said.
The four categories of houses are – HIG (high-income group) flats priced between Rs 53.52 lakhs and Rs 126.81 lakhs; MIG (middle-income group) flats ranging from Rs 31.32 lakhs to Rs 93.95 lakhs; LIG (low-income group)/one-bedroom flats ranging from Rs 14.50 lakhs to Rs 30.30 lakhs; and Janta flats ranging from Rs 7.07 lakhs to Rs 12.76 lakhs.
The DDA has made every possible effort to address all concomitant issues, including water supply and transportation, DDA’s principal commissioner (housing) JP Agarwal said.
The 2014 scheme offered 25,040 flats across categories, with prices ranging between Rs seven lakhs and Rs 1.2 crores. 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.
