Land Pooling in Delhi further simplified; DDA now to act as only facilitator

Delhi Master PlanBy Accommodation Times Bureau

Land pooling in Delhi, expected to meet the rising demand for residential and other needs besides stimulating economic growth is now further simplified for speedy execution. Delhi Development Authority (DDA) will now act more as a facilitator and planner as against the role initially envisaged for it as a part of simplification of execution of land pooling policy.

            Minister of Housing & Urban Affairs Shri Hardeep Singh Puri and Lt. Governor of Delhi Shri Anil Baijal met in Nirman Bhawan and discussed various aspects of the Land Pooling Policy and decided to make some changes in the policy decided earlier. Shri Duga Shanker Mishra, Secretary (HUA) and Vice-Chairman of DDA also participated in the discussion.

            Originally, land pooled under the Policy was to be transferred to DDA which was to act as the Developer Entity (DE) and undertake further sectoral planning and development of infrastructure in the pooled land. The Minister and LG today decided to do away with this requirement and land title continues to be with the original land owners.

            DDA was asked to immediately initiate spatial and services planning for the five zones covered under Land Pooling Policy so that the policy could be given immediate effect after finalization of regulations under the Policy.
