DDA to use Biometric Scans of Allotee
Taking measure that the flat allotee of the mega housing scheme 2014 do not sell their flat for 5 years the Delhi development authority will use biometric scan of the alotee at the time of possession and match it when they come to register their property after five years, among a host of other measures.
The idea behind the five year lock-in was to discourage speculators from applying and ensure only those who want to live in these flats are allotted one.
DDA, however, has said that such a transaction is going to be illegal and the buyer would be getting a high risk deal.
“Selling a housing scheme flat is totally illegal and firstly, it would be very difficult to carry out. The law will not support such a deal,” warned DDA Vice Chairman Balvinder Kumar.
Kumar said DDA will undertake an ‘agreement to sell’ with allottees with the provision that they can’t sell the flat for five years.
“If someone buys a flat after paying about
15 lakh cost and more than five lakh premium, they are taking a huge risk,” he said.
“We will take biometric scans of allottees at the time of possession and match it when they get these flats registered five years later. We will also carry out yearly surveys to check these flats are not sold off,” he said.
Kumar said that DDA is also planning to rope in RWAs of housing projects and make them ensure that flats are not sold off.
“We are going to give a huge amount of money — `362 crore — to these RWAs for maintenance and they will be made to keep a check,” he said.
