NEW DELHI: Delhi Development Authority‘s website saw nearly 10 lakh hits after the launch of its housing scheme on Saturday.
Housing Scheme 2021 was launched by DDA‘s vice-chairman Anurag Jain. Applications for the scheme will be received till February 16, with the draw of lots expected by the first week of March. The scheme offers 252 3bhk Higher Income Group (HIG) flats with prices ranging between Rs 70 lakh and Rs 2.1 crore, 759 2bhk Middle Income Group (MIG) flats priced between Rs 40 lakh and Rs 1.3 crore and 52 1bhk Lower Income Group (LIG) flats costing Rs 17.5 lakh to Rs 35.5 lakh. The scheme also has 291 flats for economically weaker sections priced between Rs 7.5 lakh and 29.5 lakh.
“As the scheme offers largely MIG and HIG flats located close to Delhi Metro corridors, we were sure that the scheme would attract a lot of applications. The response on the first day was very good,” a DDA official said.
By late afternoon, the website displaying the brochure of the housing scheme received 9.7 lakh hits. “Around 3,000 people registered by late afternoon, 210 people filled applications completely and 30 even made the payment,” he said.
Any Indian can apply for a flat as long as they, their spouse or dependent children don’t already own a plot or flat in Delhi. Both husband and wife can apply but in case both land a flat, only one would be allotted. The application has to filed online through dda website.
