NEW DELHi: The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) plans to build new housing projects in Dwarka, Vasant Kunj and Rohini.

Work on other residential projects is already on in Jasola, Rohini, Narela, Jahangirpuri, Bakkarwala, Kondli and Kalkaji.

The DDA has earmarked Rs 3,753.87 crore for construction of the flats in its 2016-17 budget, which was approved on Friday.

After the poor response to its 2014 affordable housing scheme aimed for the middle class and lower middle class - 10,000 houses were returned by the allottees - the DDA is planning to come up with a new scheme to resell these flats. The owners had given up the flats, most of them one-bedroom units, as they found the rooms too small, a senior DDA official said. The agency then offered these surrendered flats to those in the waiting list. "But the response wasn't encouraging. That's why we have decided to announce a new scheme," the official said.

Registration for flats to get simpler

The registration of flats sold by the Delhi Development Authority has always been a time-consuming affair, but now looks set to become simpler and shorter. The practice of getting the Collector of Stamps (CoS) to adjudicate on the quantum of stamp duty on land deeds executed by the capital's land agency will be discontinued from March 15, shortening the process of registration by around a fortnight.

The district magistrate of New Delhi, Sanjay Kumar, has informed Arun Goel, vice-chairman of DDA, that requests for adjudication on DDA's various deals with customers will no longer be entertained at the CoS branch at Vikas Sadan. In his letter, Kumar said only in "cases where the DDA feels that the duty on a particular instrument needs adjudication" should an application may be made to the stamp authority.
