12,000 LIG, MIG flats to be offered by DDA
New Delhi: The new scheme of Delhi Development Authority’s has planned to roll out 12,000 flats very soon. The DDA has completed the formalities and the proposal has been sent to the Lt Governor for approval. Out of the total number of flats, most of them are in Rohini, Dwarka, Narela, Vasant Kunj and Jasola. Among the flats lying unoccupied, most of them are from 3 years before and the rest are from the current year. The registration for LIG – Lower income group, would be close to Rs.1 lakh and for MIG and HIG category, it would be close to Rs. 2 lakhs.
An official source confirmed that the proposal has been submitted to the higher authorities for approval. Unless and until L-G asks for some clarification, the scheme will be the same as introduced, as per official sources.
The chairman of DDA Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal has instructed the necessary authorities that proper infrastructure should be available and public connectivity before the roll out. However, earlier last month, the housing authority had promised that the roll out would happen soon after the MCD polls.
The municipal polls were held on April 23. However, the new local government in all three corporations is yet to take charge. The urban body has tied up with 10 banks for sale of application forms and scheme-related transactions.
A senior official said that in addition to the eight banks that were handling this particular task, two more were added namely ICICI bank and Canara bank. The other eight were Axis Bank, Yes Bank, IDBI, Bank of Baroda, Central Bank, SBI and Kotak Mahindra. Initially, the scheme was set to be launched in Feb 17. Due to lack of proper infrastructure like road, transportation etc., the date of launch was delayed a bit.
DDA this time is expecting only genuine buyers to apply. The DDA has cancelled the provision of surrendering flats. If anyone wants to surrender the flat then he or she has to get the registration charges forfeited, depending on the size of the flat.
Officials also said, "The people can visit the locations where the flats are being offered. The lock-in period clause will no more be in existence as this is one of the primary reasons for surrender. If both husband and wife apply for properties and one of them gets allotted a flat then, the other has to give up".
Sources confirmed clearly that most of the houses available are from the Lower Income Group and there are no new ones available at this time. An official said, "Nearly about ten thousand houses are from 2014 and unlike in the past there won’t be a category named Economically Weaker Section. For LIG category, the registration fee will be Rs 1 lakh while for MIG (Middle Income Group) and HIG (Higher Income Group) it would be Rs 2 lakh".
"Applications will be available online "an official said. The DDA has made the applications available online just to reduce the long queues which might develop otherwise at various locations.
Scheme 2014 offered 25,040 flats across categories, with prices ranging between Rs 7 lakh and Rs 1.2 crore. The online response was overwhelming that the website crashed soon after the launch.
