DDA housing scheme 2010 draw of lot on April 18 2011

DDA housing scheme draw of lot on April 18

If you have applied for a flat in Delhi Development Authority's (DDA) housing scheme, the wait could be over on Monday. DDA, the country's biggest land development agency, will hold the draw of lots to select successful applicants who had applied for housing scheme on April 18, sources said. The housing scheme, DDA's biggest ever, was launched on November 25, 2010 with nearly 16,000 flats on offer.  

Unlike its previous housing scheme, this time the draw of lots will not happen at Vikas Sadan, DDA's headquarter. "The draw will take place behind closed doors in the office of another central government department, located in Noida," said a senior DDA official who didn't wish to be named.

"No outsiders will be allowed to enter the hall where the draw will be held as the premises are not large enough," he added.

The names of the successful applicants will be put on the DDA website and will also be published in major newspapers.

Out of all those who had applied in the housing scheme, the approximate number of those found eligible is 7.4 lakh. The registration amount of Rs1.5 lakh, which were deposited at the time of application, will be returned to unsuccessful applicants after some time.

The scheme was kept open from November 25 and December 24 and DDA had said then that the draw would be held within four months after the last day of closure.

The one, two and three bedroom flats that are on offer are located in areas like such as Vasant Kunj, Mukherjee Nagar, Motia Khan, Jasola, DwarkaRohini, Narela, Jaffarabad, Kondli and Gharoli. There is a mix of one bedroom, two bedroom and three bedroom houses and the prices range from Rs9 lakh to Rs1.12 crore.


Delhi became the focus of government activity in 1911 when the British shifted the capital from Kolkata (Calcutta) to Delhi. The initial location proposed for the capital was to the north of the Northern Ridge. It was later changed to the present location around Raisina Hills. Renowned town planners Edward Lutyens and Herbert Baker planned the city of New Delhi in the year 1912. In 1922 a tiny Nazul Office, consisting of 10 to 12 officials, was set up in the Collectorate of Delhi, the first authority to regulate the planned development of the city. In 1937, the Nazul office was upgraded to an Improvement Trust, constituted under the provisions of the United Provinces Improvement Act, 1911, to control building operations and regulate land usage.
India's independence in 1947 and resultant migration increased Delhi's population from 7 lakhs to 17 lakhs by 1951. Open spaces were occupied by migrants. Civic services virtually collapsed. Delhi Improvement Trust and Municipal Body, the two local bodies at that time, were not adequately equipped to cope up with the changing scenario. In order to plan Delhi and to check its rapid and haphazard growth, the Central Government appointed a Committee under the chairmanship of G. D. Birla in 1950. This Committee recommended a Single Planning & Controlling Authority for all the urban areas of Delhi. Consequently, the Delhi Development (Provisional) Authority - DDPA - was constituted by promulgating the Delhi (Control of Building Operations) Ordinance, 1955 (replaced by the Delhi Development Act, 1957) with the primary objective of ensuring the development of Delhi in accordance with a plan.
