NEW DELHI: Local agitation may delay handover of at least 3,000 flats in Rohini. Following a compensation dispute, residents of Barwala village, which encircles Rohini's sectors 34 to 37, had in April 2013 filed a writ petition in the Delhi high court against DDA's plan to construct flats there. A few weeks later, DDA obtained a vacation of a stay order and began construction of the flats which are part of the 2014 housing scheme.

The residents, who oppose any construction in the area, approached the court again in July to get a stay on the work, arguing that DDA's development work was a contempt of court. Since then DDA has been facing problem in carrying on with the construction work.

According to the DDA vice-chairperson, around 3,000 flats fall in the area where Barwala residents' agitation is still on.

Under DDA's latest scheme, 10,875 flats are promised in Rohini, all of which may not be ready by the March 2015 deadline. "We are trying to solve this issue through multiple ways. First, we plan to approach the Supreme Court and ask for police protection to construct the flats and submit our review petition in this regard. Secondly, we're also engaging the locals in discussions, with the Delhi LG. The deadline of March 2015 that we have promised is precisely for the reason of a little hiccup that we're facing in Barwala. Otherwise going by our speed, we'd have handed over the plots by December this year," said Balvinder Kumar, DDA vice-chairperson.
