After receiving the bad response from the general public for DDA Housing Scheme 2017. Delhi Development Authority has decided to change the size of LIG flats which was returned by the allottees of DDA Housing Scheme 2014. This decision has been taken because the people are not taking interest in these LIG flats due to the small size.
However, the size of LIG category flats is approximately 33 meters. Now DDA has decided to increase its size up to 60 meters (carpet area). This time, DDA wants to fulfill all needs of people.
Under DDA Housing Scheme 2017, about 11,197 flats of LIG category have been included. However, these flats were constructed in 2011 to 2013. After that DDA included EWS category flats in the 2014 housing scheme.
According to the information, now LIG category flats will be developed in the size of 60 meters. But there will be no change in the category of existing flats. More than 11000 flats were returned by the allottees due to its small size.
EWS: up to 30 meters
LIG: up to 60 meters
MIG-1: up to 90 meters
MIG-2: From 91 to 110m
HIG: More than 110 meters
After the launch of DDA Housing Scheme 2017, only 33,000 forms sold till Thursday. While more than 1.5 lakh people have also taken information about the DDA scheme online. However, this scheme was launched on 30 June 2017 and the last date of application form submission is 11 August 2017.
However, DDA is providing a two-way facility where the people can apply for the scheme through the both online or offline mode. For this, about 8 banks have been selected for sale and receipt of application form.
