There is good news for Okhla news as reports have surfaced that how the Delhi Development Authority is to offer 13,000 flats by January 26. Earlier, under the 2016 housing scheme, the offer was to be rolled out around Diwali.
A senior DDA official said buyers will get nearly a month to complete the formalities and submit applications, HT reported.
“The scrutiny of application forms may take another month. So, the draw can be held in the first week of April. The agency may start giving possession around July-September after completing unfinished civil work and services in the colonies,” he said.
“It was a matter of concern that at a location, the nearest milk booth was situated around six kilometres away. All these aspects are being looked into. A survey is being conducted and before allotment, these issues will be addressed,” a senior official said.
“The agency is waiting for the study report by the committee. The flats will be handed over only after fixing these problems,” he added.
The flats are located in various colonies across the city such as Sarita Vihar, Jasola, Dwarka, Pitampura, Sukhdev Vihar, Narela, Rohini, Jehangirpuri, Loknayakpuram, Dilshad Garden, Paschim Vihar, Bindapur and Mukherjee Nagar.
However, the flats are of old construction and will be available for the draw with majority of them being on one bedroom, hall and kitchen (1 BHK) that were either surrendered or cancelled under the 2014 scheme.
