New Delhi: Delhi Development Authority will issue its next housing scheme in December 2016, which would be much larger than the 2014 project and will include at least 24,660 LIG flats.
Top DDA officials said as per the new scheme, about 40,000 flats would be ready by 2016, while remaining would be completed the year after.
“Currently 45,962 flats are under construction and 16,800 flats are in planning stage. About 40,000 flats would be completed by December 2016, out of which 24,660 would be LIG. Rest would be completed in 2017,” DDA Vice-Chairman Balvinder Kumar said.
The ‘DDA Housing Scheme 2014’ had over 25,000 flats on offer, out of which over 22,000 flats were one-bedroom apartments.
DDA is currently handing over the flats to successful applicants of its 2014 scheme and Union Urban Development Minister M Venkaiah Naidu is scheduled to start the process of allotment at the housing authority’s headquarters, Vikas Sadan on Saturday.
Kumar said the flats in the new schemes would be built with modern and green technology.
“Our last scheme had mostly small one-bed room flats but this time we have these LIG flats which are bigger. And, the flats would be built using pre-fab, green and modern technology.
They would be located in the same Dwarka, Rohini region as in the last scheme,” he said.
