After receiving lukewarm responses to its recent housing schemes, the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) has decided to make some changes in its housing scheme for 2018 that is set to be launched in June. The scheme would offer fresh housing options in localities that have established infrastructure in place. The 2017 scheme was offering flats that were returned by the homebuyers in the previous editions. The authority was criticised as the 2017 housing scheme reportedly did not have proper civic amenities and transport facilities. 

DDA Housing Scheme 2018 offering

The DDA will be building 20,987 flats, of which 488 will be three-bedroom flats meant for the high-income group (HIG); 579 flats meant for the middle-income group flats; 16,296 units meant for the low-income group and 3,624 homes meant for the economically-weaker section. The new houses will be built across Vasant Kunj , Dwarka , Narela , Rohini and Siraspur. The DDA has started construction in most of the sites, and is expected to get completed by March next year. Also, the size of one bedroom units has been increased to 430 sqft from 323 sqft.

Earlier, the plan was to build about 16,000 houses but with the revised targets of building one lakh homes by 2022, the total number is now updated to the current figure.  

Localities on offer

This time, around 416 HIG houses, 268 MIG houses and 94 LIG houses will be offered in Vasant Kunj on Mehrauli-Mahipalpur Road while 72 HIG flats will be built near Sector B, Pocket 2, in Vasant Kunj. Apart from this, 311 MIG houses and 125 LIG houses will come up near Sultanpur tomb whereas approximately 16,077 LIG houses and 3,624 Janta flats will be built in Narela and Rohini. 

Modern and equipped homes

According to media reports, the HIG flats being built in Jasola Vihar would be equipped with premium safety features. Also, the DDA is claiming to construct flats in compliance with the latest earthquake-resistant technology that can withstand earthquakes measuring 8.5 on the Richter scale. The project will also have a local sewage treatment plant, RO-treated water for drinking and multilevel underground parking. Apart from this, the complexes will be built in a high-rise fashion, following the National Building Code , 2016. The code also looks into construction norms such as minimum room size, dimension, building column spots, parking rules, the height of buildings and corresponding to floor area ratio, and evacuation measures at a time of emergency.
