Application forms for 15,574 flats from Nov 25, allotment within four months

The application forms for 15,574 flats of the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) will be up for sale starting November 25. The DDA will hold the draw of lots to allot flats within four months of closing of the registration process on December 24.

In addition to the 15,574 flats, the Authority will also put up 699 one-room tenements under the Janata category for the economically weaker sections.

The one to three bedroom flats are spread across various locations in Delhi such as Vasant Kunj, Dwarka, Rohini, Pitampura, Narela, Jasola, Motia Khan, Mukherjee Nagar and Kalyan Vihar, among others.

While the price of the houses will range from Rs 6 lakh to Rs 1.12 crore, the Janata-category houses will be between Rs 3 lakh and Rs 6 lakh.

Of the total, 2,706 houses will be in D-6, Vasant Kunj, and priced slightly higher (Rs 34 lakh to Rs 1.12 crore) than others in the scheme. "These are three-star accommodations and are fully furnished, and also have certain special design elements," a DDA official said.

To ensure maintenance for 30 years, the DDA has also included a one-time fee in the price chart.

Officials said the applications can be purchased from either the DDA headquarters at Vikas Sadan or from the branches of the following banks Axis Bank, HDFC, ICICI, IDBI, Central Bank of India, State Bank of India and Union Bank of India. The form can also be downloaded from DDA's website. According to the DDA, an applicant will have to submit a registration amount of Rs 1.5 lakh along with their forms and those applying for the Janata tenements will have to submit Rs 50,000. If the applicants are unsuccessful, the registration amount will be refunded within four months after the draw of lots.
