To offer houses in Rohini, Dwarka for EWS and middle class

For all those who have been waiting for the Delhi Development Authority’s housing scheme to buy a house, the wait is finally about to get over.

After a gap of around four years, the authority is going to announce a new housing scheme next month. It will cater to both the economically weaker sections and the middle class. It will offer houses in much sought after colonies like Rohini and Dwarka.

The last time the DDA had come up with a housing scheme was in November 2010. Over 16,000 flats in areas such as Vasant Kunj, Mukherjee Nagar, Dwarka and Rohini were offered then.

“The number of flats in the new housing scheme will be sizeable but it will not be as much as last time. The number of flats and further details will be conveyed to the public soon,” said DDA spokesperson Neemo Dhar.

Giving details of the scheme, DDA Vice-Chairman Balvinder Kumar said: “The new housing scheme will have one-bedroom flats for the economically weaker sections as well as the normal LIG size flats. Our idea is to cater to both the middle class and the weaker classes.”

Mr. Kumar added that the DDA will also speed up the process of allotting the unoccupied EWS and LIG flats to those who were identified for them. “The process of allotment of EWS flats lying vacant in different parts of the Capital will also be hastened within a month,” he said.

Apart from these two housing schemes, the DDA is constructing housing societies for the rehabilitation of slum dwellers in Okhla and Kalkaji areas. The housing complex by the name Kalkaji in-situ housing society is slated to be completed by 2016. Around 3,000 families will be benefited by this housing scheme.

In another initiative, the DDA is already executing the Kathputli Colony rehabilitation project.
