Delhi Devel­op­ment Au­thor­ity (DDA) has de­clared that they will is­sue draw for the re­main­ing al­lot­tees on 8th Au­gust for 744 ap­pli­cants.

Th­ese ap­pli­cants are those who are yet to be al­lot­ted plots un­der the 1981 Ro­hini Res­i­den­tial Scheme. This an­nounce­ment was made by DDA Vice-Chair­man Balvin­der Ku­mar, fol­low­ing the Supreme Court's or­der of al­lot­ting land to the al­lot­tees of the scheme.

A to­tal of 82,384 ap­pli­cants had reg­is­tered for the Ro­hini Res­i­den­tial Scheme in 1981, launched to pro­vide houses to peo­ple in Ro­hini zone un­der var­i­ous cat­e­gories: Mid­dle In­come Group (MIG), Lower In­come Group ( LIG), Eco­nom­i­cally Weaker Sec­tion, etc.

Supreme Court or­dered DDA to al­lot de­vel­oped plots to th­ese al­lot­tees within four months. The court also or­dered that the plots have to be de­vel­oped ones, which means they must have ba­sic ameni­ties such as roads, elec­tric­ity and wa­ter.

The of­fi­cials in­formed that to­tal 82,384 ap­pli­cants had reg­is­tered for the Ro­hini Res­i­den­tial Scheme in 1981, which was launched with an aim to pro­vide houses to peo­ple in Ro­hini zone un­der var­i­ous cat­e­gories like Mid­dle In­come Group (MIG), Lower In­come Group (LIG), Eco­nom­i­cally Weaker Sec­tion, etc. And till date, 80,037 ap­pli- cants have been al­lot­ted plots, while 744 reg­is­trants are await­ing al­lot­ment.

The bench led by Jus­tice H L Dattu said suc­cess­ful al­lot­tees could not be made to suf­fer more on ac­count of the DDA’s in­abil­ity, on one pre­text or an­other, to al­lot plots to them in ac­cor­dance with a scheme floated over three decades ago.

Supreme Court or­dered DDA to al­lot de­vel­oped plots to th­ese al­lot­tees within four months. The court also or­dered that the plots have to be de­vel­oped ones, which means they must have

ba­sic ameni­ties such as roads, elec­tric­ity and wa­ter.
