t i ons, DDA in­formed this correspondent that it had no such in­for­ma­tion.

“We had re­ceived a let­ter from the DDA VC a few months ago with a re­quest to pass the res­o­lu­tion for the con­ver­sion of 47 ru­ral vil­lages (in NDMC’s ju­ris­dic­tion) to ur­ban ar­eas. Our stand­ing com­mit­tee and House has passed the res­o­lu­tion. It was sent it to DDA VC, and he has to pro­ceed,” says Mo­han Bhard­waj, chair­man, stand­ing com­mit­tee, NDMC ( North Delhi). SDMC has also claimed that it passed a res­o­lu­tion to con­vert 38 of its ru­ral vil­lages to ur­ban vil­lages. “We did it more than six months ago fol­low­ing a re­quest from DDA VC and pro­vided him a copy of the res­o­lu­tion. Why is the Delhi govern­ment ask­ing us for a copy of the res­o­lu­tion? DDA should have sent them that copy to them,” says Sub­hash Arya, mayor, SDMC.

Strangely enough, Ra­jesh Ku­mar Jain, di­rec­tor, land pool­ing, DDA, when con­tacted by HT Es­tates, said no in­for­ma­tion on the res­o­lu­tion had been re­ceived and that DDA would pro­ceed on the mat­ter only when it had a copy of the res­o­lu­tions pol­icy. HT Es­tates on Fe­bru­ary 13, 2016, had high­lighted se­ri­ous con­se­quences of de­lay in im­ple­men­ta­tion of the land pool­ing (LPP) scheme in Delhi. Quot­ing realty ex­perts it had re­ported that var­i­ous groups had in­vested more than ₹ 30,000 in buy­ing land ex­pect­ing the pol­icy to be im­ple­mented soon. About 10,000 in­di­vid­u­als had also paid ₹ 10 lakh to ₹ 20 lakh each for apart­ments un­der LPP
