DDA all set to hold draw for housing scheme

The Delhi Development Authority is all set to hold the draw for its “DDA Housing Scheme 2006”, under which nearly 3,500 two and three-bedroom flats and expandable houses will be offered across the Capital. The scheme had received a tremendous response as nearly 3.2 lakh forms were sold and about 1.5 lakh registrations received. The scheme was launched on August 22 last year and closed on October 12. Despite the DDA allowing only one registration per family and that too only on the possession of a PAN, the number of registrations was high as a number of banks took to financing the registration amount for a non-refundable sum of nearly Rs. 5,000. Applications cancelled However, this time a number of applications have been cancelled as the applicants were found to have applied in their own name as also in the name of the spouse. The response to the scheme was also good because it offered flats and expandable houses in various premium localities. While three-bedroom flats were offered in Sarita Vihar, Dwarka and Motia Khan, two-bedroom ones were offered in Dwarka, Sarita Vihar, Rohini and Shalimar Bagh besides other places. (Hindu.com)
