Delhi Development Authority has announced to launch its most awaited housing scheme in June 2018. Around 21,000 flats will be on offer this time in Narela, Vasantkunj, Dwaraka, Rohini and Sirsapur.
A senior DDA official said that their latest housing scheme is going to be much better and bigger than the previous one, with more spacious flats on offer. Good news is also that unlike its previous schemes, DDA won’t include flats that were surrendered in earlier schemes with the recent ones.
He further said, “Most allottees complained that the size of the 1 BHK flats was too small and uninhabitable. This is the reason we insist that applicants should go and physically check the flats before applying for the scheme but most don’t do so and only visit the flats once the allotment is done.”
DDA have also increased the carpet area of residences with the minimum one starting from 430 sq ft, which means these flats are more spacious than the older flats which were about 323 square feet in size. On the other hand, smaller flats would be put in the EWS (economically weaker section) category so that applicants will be sure what type of flat they are applying for.
The 2018 housing scheme would once again have mostly one-bedroom flats on offer, along with two-bedroom and three-bedroom flats. The flats are located in areas such as Vasant Kunj, Dwarka, Rohini, Narela, Siraspur etc.
In the last year scheme, DDA had put a total of 12,617 flats on offer, for which it had received 46,000 applications. However, after the flats were allotted, nearly 6,500 allottees surrendered the flats, due to their small size and also their location.
However, DDA has decided that instead of merging the surrendered flats into current scheme, they will twist their designs in order to make them attractive and attract more buyers.
