Delhi Development Authority has received around 5,000 applications for its proposed new housing scheme. As per senior officials the low turnout for application may be a result of demonetisation.
The 2017 Housing Scheme of DDA, offers 12,000 flats for four income categories. Scheme was launched on June 30. The last date for submitting applications is August 11.
“We held a meeting with our partnering banks. Though the full details across different categories, we are yet to receive, I can say that at this point of time, about 5,000 applications have been received,” DDA’s Principal Commissioner (Housing), J P Agarwal told. Agarwal added that the housing authority will make every possible efforts to address all concomitant issues, including water supply and transportation.
“Yes, some areas like Narela, Rohini, have connectivity issues, and some of flats need repair, but before allotting the flats, we will make them fit to move in as well,” he said.
