DDA Housing Scheme 2017: Poor Response-Only 20,000 applications!

Delhi Development Authority (DDA)’s new Housing Scheme 2017 has received poor response from the public with only around 20,000 applicants applying for the scheme till now. Unlike the DDA Housing Scheme 2014 for which the online response was so massive that the DDA’s official website crashed soon after the launch, DDA Housing Scheme 2017 has been already extended once for a month due to poor response.The initial deadline for submitting applications for the Delhi Development Authority (DDA)’s new Housing Scheme 2017 was August 11. Now, the last date for submitting applications for Delhi Development Authority (DDA)’s new Housing Scheme 2017 is September 11 due to poor response from people till July-end. As per some sources, DDA had received only 5,000 applications till last week of July and have attributed the poor response for Delhi Development Authority (DDA)’s new Housing Scheme 2017 to demonetisation.

DDA Housing Scheme 2014 offered 25,040 flats with prices ranging between Rs 7 lakh and Rs 1.2 crore. Delhi Development Authority (DDA)’s new Housing Scheme 2017 is offering  12,000 flats for four income categories and was launched on June 30,2017. Out of the 12,000 flats, around 10,000 unoccupied ones are from the DDA housing scheme 2014 which have been surrendered by the applicants. The price of flats in Delhi Development Authority (DDA)’s new Housing Scheme 2017 range from close to Rs 7 lakh to around Rs 1.26 crore.

Although DDA is making every possible effort to address all issues like water supply, transportation etc., yet some areas like Narela, Rohini, have connectivity issues, and some of flats need repair. DDA is claiming to make them fit before allotment.

There have also been complaints of Nodal Officers nominated by DDA not picking up the phones of general public who have been eager to inquire about the scheme.

It is expected that around 30,000 applications will be received by DDA till 11th September 2017 in Delhi Development Authority (DDA)’s new Housing Scheme 2017. DDA had earlier announed the draw date in November 2017 but since the scheme has been delayed, the draw date of Delhi Development Authority (DDA)’s new Housing Scheme 2017 will also get extended by a month to December 2017.
