DELHI: In its board meeting on February 24, DDA decided to launch a one-time relief scheme for those who stayed away from the leasehold to freehold conversion camp conducted recently.

According to senior DDA officials, a decision was taken to provide a special ‘one-time’ relief, wherein a maximum period for levy of misuse charge (levied on misuse of property) will be restricted to five years from the date of detection of misuse.

Officials said the scheme was aimed at mainly facilitating the payment of the charges and allow conversion of property from leasehold to freehold.

“Many cases of conversion of leasehold to freehold have been pending for years due to heavy misuse charges, which at times exceed the cost of the plot or flat,” said a senior DDA official.

The move by DDA is expected to benefit hundreds of property owners in areas like Karol Bagh, Daryaganj and Paharganj.
