DDA allots parking spaces to 1,214 flat owners under 2019 housing scheme – ET RealEstate

NEW DELHI: The DDA allotted on Wednesday free parking spaces across three categories to owners of 1,214 flats in Vasant Kunj under the 2019 housing scheme by conducting a draw of lots, officials said. The draw of lots was held at the Vikas Sadan, headquarters of the Delhi Development Authority.

“Allotment of parking spaces wasn’t done at the time of allotment of flats for the 2019 scheme. Therefore, it was done today,” an official said, adding that 1,267 parking lots were up for grabs.

The draw of lots for allotment of nearly 18,000 flats on offer under the scheme was held in July 2019.

“The draw was conducted today and 1,214 applicants were allotted parking spaces, under three categories — stilt, basement and open,” the official said.

These applicants possessed flats in three categories — 416 in high-income group (HIG), 579 in middle-income group (MIG) and 219 in low-income group (LIG), he said.

“The allotment of parking spaces was free of cost as it included for Vasant Kunj flats under Housing Scheme 2019. Also, for 2021 Housing Scheme launched in January, parking will be allotted along with allotment of flats,” the official said.

Sixty applicants belonged to physically-challenged category, the official said.

The DDA Housing Scheme 2019 had offered flats under four categories — 488 (HIG), 1,555 (MIG), 8,383 (LIG) and 7,496 (EWS) — in Vasant Kunj and Narela area.

Delhi: Rs 10-lakh development incentive to RWAs for segregating waste – ET RealEstate

NEW DELHI: To motivate residents segregate household waste, South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) has proposed to spend up to Rs 10 lakh for development work in areas where residents welfare associations (RWAs) are doing 100% segregation as per the solid waste management norms.

The standing committee chairman, Rajdutt Gahlot, has proposed allocation of Rs 5 crore in the 2021-22 budget for the project

“Though it needs the House’s nod before implementation, such projects are important to motivate people and automatically help in improving our Swachhta ranking,” he said. To identify such RWAs, SDMC plans to collect daily reports from the concessionaire picking door-to-door waste, Gahlot added.

“The proposal includes incentivising RWAs in residential areas, group housing societies and even DDA pockets. We will do only those tasks demanded by an RWA and no fund or cash will be transferred,” he said.

SDMC has also been felicitating RWAs doing good segregation work under the Swachh Survekshan campaign. Last year, SDMC had ranked 31 out of 47 cities.

Segregating household waste is eco-friendly behavior because it helps in recycling. Allocating money to RWAs already engaged in this practice will further encourage them and perhaps nudge those who aren’t already doing it to adopt the practice. Municipal bodies should spend more money in promoting such positive endeavours.TimesView

“Felicitating RWAs through competitions is part of the campaign and persuades others to contribute in keeping their area neat and clean,” said an official. For example, the RWA of Sector 7 Dwarka has got a small cash prize for arranging segregation of even biomedical waste generated at households.

The environment management services department said the segregation was made compulsory two years ago but the compliance had been comparatively low. “We have selected 58 wards to ensure 100% segregation and processing of waste. So far, 60-70% people are contributing to the cause,’ said an official.
