Delhi Development Authority may launch a new housing scheme for HIG (High Income Group) in Dwarka in upcoming years. The authority will be constructing HIG flats in high-rise towers in Dwarka for the scheme. The land owning agency has taken a decision to construct 14 penthouses in the 7 towers under the scheme. The agency will construct a total of 1114 high-end dwelling units. The 14 penthouses under the scheme will offer latest and modern lifestyle facilities and terrace garden.

On Tuesday, 23rd June, Delhi Development Authority approved the plan of this construction and the proposal to redevelop the authority’s own staff quarters. This will be the first ever project of authority with this majority of HIG houses. The new project will fulfill the growing demand of HIG houses in the capital city. The project will come up in sector 19B in Dwarka and the construction will start soon, according to the sources.

The project will include HIG units with 3 bedrooms while the penthouse will have four bedrooms with terrace garden. Out of total, 932 will be HIG houses, 168 HIG houses with servant quarter and 14 penthouses. These units will be constructed in 11 towers, of which seven will have penthouses. Ground floor of each tower will have no flats and to be used for parking.

The authority will also redevelop DDA staff quarters in Rajendra Nagar and Mayur Vihar Phase-I. The DDA staff quarters are constructed over two hectares with 1BHK, 2BHK & 3BHK units and these units have a very low floor area where parking is also a major problem. The redevelopment plans will cover all the problems and the capacity of site will be increased by threefold.

DDA will provide the luxury facilities inside the project for HIG flats. The authority will construct high rises with local shopping centers, community facilities, clubs, indoor and outdoor sport facilities, swimming pool and gymnasium. These features will definitely attract the HIG category from private developers to DDA housing schemes.

The final decision, however, is yet to be taken about when the scheme will be launched.
