Delhi Development Authority has all set to launch its new housing scheme 2016 for the allotment of 13,000 flats. These flats are from DDA older scheme, launched in 2014. This time, the authority plans to increase the earnest money to Rs. 5 lakh for MIG flats, which step would forfeit the applicants if they returns the flat. The plan is to attract the serious buyers, however the final decision would be taken in a forthcoming meeting of DDA to be held on 10 October.

On the other side, the people are raising their hands against these new clauses and many of them already complaining for the amendments of these clauses.
Delhi Residents’ Welfare Associations Joint Front, an umbrella body of RWAs under the Bhagidari scheme, has written to LG Najeeb Jung in this regard.
On the same, the General Secretary of the organization, Pankaj Agarwal, said that the clauses in the new scheme will discourage genuine buyers. Firstly, it is a huge amount, and secondly, the authority never returns the money on time. Those who will not get a flat will have to block Rs 5 lakh for a long duration.
Welfare Associations Joint Front has raised three issues about the scheme which to be launched in Diwali.
- High earnest money
- Forfeiture clause
- Fully online process.
A member of joint front said that How can they forfeit the earnest money? It is difficult for people to block Rs 5 lakh. Often, people don’t like the house that is offered and want to return it. This clause should be removed.
In a reply, DDA official said that many people send their several representation for the same. And we had asked to people to go and check the flat, their location, area size etc before applying in the scheme. But a large number of non-serious people applied for the flats. These clauses will only help us,” he added.
According to the source, large number of flats to be offered in the upcoming scheme of DDA are located in Rohini, Narela and Dwarka.
