The houses will be spread across Rohini, Narela and Dwarka and will be priced from Rs 14-15 lakh to Rs 1 crore. And, we should be able to launch the largest-ever scheme by July-end," DDA vice-chairman Balvinder Kumar told PTI.

The much-awaited scheme comes four years after the DDA offered over 16,000 flats in its 2010 scheme.

"While 24,000 flats will be low-cost, the remaining 2000- 2,500 flats will be available across LIG, MIG and HIG categories. We will soon hold a meeting to discuss whether the one-room flats would be made available to all or only to the economically weak ..

 

Talking about the features of the flats, he said, "Most of the houses are pre-fabricated and have green features, used for the first time in DDA houses.

"They are being built in accordance with the Master Plan Delhi, 2021."

A senior official said the houses will be located in Rohini, Narela and Dwarka and range from four-storeyed and above.

According to Kumar, "By July, 15,000 flats should be ready, another major chunk by December end and, finally, about 1,000 will be  completed by March next year."

Once the work is over, the flats would be made available to the applicants through draw of lots, he said.

Meanwhile, on the Kathputli Colony issue, Kumar said, "About 400-500 families have shifted to the camp. We have already issued 700 slips to that effect."

Named after the colourful community of puppeteers and artists, Kathputli Colony is a slum cluster in West Delhi's Shadipur area housing about 3,000 families who earn their livelihood by practising their arts.

 

These families, under the proposed plan -- which is a public-private-partnership (PPP) project between DDA and Raheja Developers for their in-situ rehabilitation -- were to be shifted to a transit camp at Anand Parbat until the houses were ready in the colony.

 

There were reports that some families had refused to move from the colony as they found the new, proposed houses unsuitable to the nature of their work, which involved outdoor activities.

 

"Most of the families want to shift and it is only a handful of them with some vested interest who are opposing it," a senior DDA official said.

On the landfill sites for managing solid waste in the city, Kumar said that eight new landfill sites have been identified by DDA which can be shared by the corporations. He added that one of them is likely to be Bawana.
