DDA Housing Scheme 2017: The upcoming Awas Yojana of Delhi Development Authority to ensure the adequate public transport connectivity and other services in areas.
The authority has confirmed the launch of the scheme but not out the date of launch. From the month of November, many rumours are in the news about the launch date of DDA Scheme 1016-2017 that the scheme may launch on Diwali, registrations may roll out in January start and online application to start in February end, but still the authority has not confirmed the launch date of the scheme.
According to the news the new housing scheme of DDA is expected to be launched by the end of March for 13,000 flats. The flats will be available in Sarita Vihar, Jasola, Dwarka, Pitampura, Sukhdev Vihar, Narela, Rohini, Jahangirpuri, Loknayakpuram, Dilshad Garden, Paschim Vihar, Bindapur and Mukherjee Nagar.
All the flats which to be added in the scheme were offered in the last scheme of DDA which were later surrendered by the successful allottees due to the reasons like poor construction, infrastructure, and other facilities. A majority of the flats were one bedroom, hall and kitchen (BHK).
According to the source, Delhi government to construct around 6,178 flats for the poor at 4 locations and the agency is also planning to write to the Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) to improve bus frequency in these areas or introduce new routes in colonies that are still not on its map.
And further he added that the DTC should not have much issue with the request of DDA as bus service is already available in some areas and the corporation has just to increase the frequency. “We will request them to approve new routes or more buses on specific routes,” he said. And the authority is also planning to contact the Mother Dairy to open milk, vegetable and fruit stalls in that areas.
DDA officials said that as we are making every possible effort to launch the housing scheme in March, we want to make sure there is better transport service and utility outlets before making the allotments. We have received feedbacks from various quarters regarding non-availability of grocery shops or milk booths in the vicinity of some flats. At some locations, the nearest Mother Dairy booth was six kilometers away.
He also said that the tendering process to allot shops in housing complexes or their vicinity has already been initiated. “We hope vendors will also move well in time,” he said.
