NEW DELHI: The Delhi Development Authority is launching a new housing scheme, “DDA Housing Scheme-2008”, to allot about 5,000 flats on a freehold basis. The scheme, aimed at providing housing for all sections of society, will be open from August 6 to September 16.

Flats with one bedroom, two bedrooms and three bedrooms and expandable flats would be on offer. They are located in Pitampura, Dwarka, Motia Khan, Paschim Vihar, Dilshad Garden, Vasant Kunj, Narela, Shalimar Bagh, Jhilmil, Nand Nagari, Peeragarhi, Sarai Khalil, Rohini, Lok Nayak and Bindapur.

Multi-storeyed flats with lifts will also be on offer at Pitampura, Dwarka and Motia Khan.

The tentative cost of the flats varies from Rs.7.2 lakh to Rs.77 lakh depending on the location and the plinth area that ranges from 39.39 square metres to 158 square metres. An allottee also has to pay the freehold charges. The allotment would only be made on cash-down basis.

No income limit is required for the applicant who can apply according to his requirement and affordability. An applicant must be a citizen of India and possess a Permanent Account Number issued under the Income Tax Act. The applicant should not have any flat allotted in his or her name. Only one person from a family is eligible to apply.

The application forms along with brochure will be available from the DDA sales counter at Vikas Sadan, almost all branches of AXIS Bank, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank and IDBI Bank, besides the Vikas Sadan branches of State Bank of India and Central Bank of India. The cost of the application form and brochure is Rs.100.

The registration amount under the scheme is Rs.1.5 lakh.

This has to be deposited along with the application form by a banker’s cheque/demand draft and no payment by cheque is acceptable.

The applicant can have five preferences for flats of all categories and has to submit the self-attested copy of PAN and proof of residence. Those who apply under the reserve category would have to submit a certificate to that effect. The allotment to eligible applicants will be made through a computerised draw based on random number techniques. The results of the draw will be displayed on the notice board at Vikas Sadan and would also be available at
