NEW DELHI: There’s good and bad news for house aspirants in Delhi. The good news is that after much delay,
Delhi Development Authority (DDA) is likely to launch its latest housing scheme in February 2019. The bad one is
that the number of flats would be much less than earlier expected and out of the 20,000 flats DDA is likely to
offer, most would be one-bedroom flats or those meant for the Economically Weaker Sections (EWS).
The land-owning agency was expected to launch a housing scheme in 2018 but due to various reasons, the plan
was postponed. Initially, DDA had planned to launch a mega scheme with 30,000 flats on offer but the number
has now been reduced.
“We will be offering flats that are ready with us and would need about two more months to wrap up the process
and then launch the housing scheme,” a DDA official said. “The number of flats will range between 15,000 and
20,000. Most of the flats, however, will be one bedroom flats or those in EWS category. There will be some two
bedroom flats as well,” he added.
According to DDA officials, the flats on offer in the latest housing scheme would be better designed and more
spacious compared to its previous housing schemes. DDA had faced flak over its small one-bedroom flats in the
previous schemes and a large number of these flats were returned by allot-tees.
