With many flats being surrendered in its DDA Housing Scheme 2021, the Authority has said that it may introduce a ‘first come first served’ policy, for those inventories that are not in demand. Applicants can now make an online booking for the upcoming DDA housing scheme 2022.
Out of the 1,354 DDA flats that were launched in the DDA Housing Scheme 2021, in January this year, around 689 flats have been surrendered, with a majority being from the MIG category, followed by the EWS category.
According to an Indian Express report, out of the 689 flats, the MIG category in Dwarka 19B has seen the maximum surrender of flats- 295 out of 352. 11-floor MIG flats here have vacant spaces that double up for parking, as well as shops.
The project also has an underground parking lot. Spread across 125 sq m, the sample flat has two rooms, a hall, a bathroom and a kitchen. Each block also has three lifts. Jasola Pocket 9 B, offering HIG category flats, saw a surrender of close to 175 DDA flats out of 215 flats. The cost of Jasola Pocket 9B 14-floor HIG flats range between Rs 1.97 crores and Rs 2.14 crores. In the draw, this property was highlighted as one of the sought-after projects, offering 3 BHK apartments measuring 170 sq m and having facilities including multi-level parking and three-tier, in-house water management model. The project also enjoys excellent connectivity, with the Okhla barrage being three kms away and Noida and Faridabad being just half-an-hour away.
The DDA has planned to introduce a ‘first come first served’ policy. In those sectors where close to 50% of flats that were either rejected, not allotted in previous schemes or surrendered, will be sold. This is subject to approval from the Ministry of Housing and Urban, for which a proposal has already been sent.
This is particularly beneficial to all, because the DDA will have to spend on maintaining the surrendered flats, which is a difficult task and failure to do so, may create a bad impression. According to the rules, once the draw of lots is over, the DDA may conduct a mini-draw in which only 20% of the waitlisted applicants can participate. According to DDA commissioner (housing) VS Yadav, “If the policy is approved, most of these surrendered flats – 175 out of 215 HIG flats in Jasola and 295 out of 352 MIG flats in Dwarka Sector 19 – would be on offer on a ‘first come first served’ basis. All other rules that are applicable when a person buys a flat under the draw of lots to be eligible, would be followed.”
