The Delhi De­vel­op­ment Au­thor­ity (DDA) can­cels its plan to re­serve 80% flats for Delhi cit­i­zens in its new hous­ing scheme, where they are pro­vid­ing 25,600 flats. In a au­thor­ity meet­ing held by Lt Gov­er­nor and DDA chair­man Na­jeeb Jung with of­fi­cials of the union ur­ban de­vel­op­ment min­istry and po­lit­i­cal rep­re­sen­ta­tives and DDA of­fi­cials, the pro­posal was kept by the au­thor­i­ties to re­serve 80% flats for Delhi res­i­dents, but can­celled as many mem­bers were not in favour of the clause.

The scheme was can­celled as, the mem­bers have to say that, it would be un­just for the other ap­pli­cants who are keen to buy a DDA flat, there are lakhs of such peo­ple who live in the na­tional cap­i­tal re­gion (NCR). Apart from the pro­posal to re­serve 80% flats for Delhi res­i­dents, many other pro­pos­als got ap­proval, like au­thor­i­ties ap­proved of a new clause that will with­hold own­er­ship rights of the al­lot­tees for the first five years. Though, many mem­bers were not con­vinced with this clause, later it was ap­proved. A long de­bate was held on this new clause the clause was in­tro­duced as a mea­sure to en­sure only those who gen­uinely want to live in a DDA flat are al­lot­ted one. Many mem­bers, how­ever, raised ob­jec­tions, they said, what if some­one is in ur­gent need of money.

Cur­rently the scheme has now been ap­proved in prin­ci­ple, some changes may be brought in the present pro­posal in the next few days.
