Seeking to facilitate visits by prospective buyers to different DDA flats being offered as part of its new housing scheme, the urban body has deputed dedicated representatives at various project sites to guide the visitors.
The DDA 2017 housing scheme rolled out on June 30 by urban development minister M Venkaiah Naidu offers 12,000 flats across four income categories. The flats are spread across Rohini, Dwarka, Narela, Vasant Kunj, Jasola, Pitampura, Paschim Vihar and Siraspur.

“Prospective buyers can visit the flats. They can come and have a look at the facilities. And to facilitate their visits, we have deputed representatives at various flat sites, who will guide people, who are interested in applying for the DDA scheme,“ a senior DDA official said.
When asked, which areas are getting more visitors, he only said, as of now, “only three-four housing sites are being visited by prospective buyers“. He, however, did not mention names of those sites.
Around 10,000 unoccupied flats are from the 2014 housing scheme, while 2,000 flats have been lying vacant.
The move by the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) to allow and facilitate visit to flats is apparently to make people comfortable about the features of the flats and the facilities being offered.
The draw of lots is slated to be conducted in the first week of November which would be streamed online. The last date for submitting applications is August 11.
The price of flats range from close to Rs 7 lakh to over Rs 1.26 crore.
The four categories of houses are -HIG with 87 flats ranging from Rs 53.52 lakh to Rs 126.81 lakh; MIG with 404 flats ranging from Rs 31.32 lakh to Rs 93.95 lakh; LIG one-bed room flats numbering 11,197 and ranging from Rs 14.50 lakh to Rs 30.30 lakh; and 384 Janta flats ranging from Rs 7.07 lakh to Rs 12.76 lakh.
“People are free to visit the areas where the flats are being offered. We have also removed the lock-in period clause, as we realized this was also a factor in buyers surrendering flats,“ the official said.
