The DDA Special Housing Scheme 2021-22 is a targeted housing scheme launched by the Delhi Development Authority for the benefit of the residents of New Delhi. This welfare scheme facilitates the sale of subsidized apartments to citizens from specific income groups through the medium of a name draw.
An estimated total of about 18,000 flats were available on sale in Delhi, in locations like Jasola, Dwarka, Rohini and Narela for residents across different categories – Higher Income Group (HIG), Middle Income Group (MIG), and Lower Income Group (LIG) and Janta flats. In some cases, the authorities have also made provisions for auctioning of residential plots in 2021.
New updates show that 76 institutional plots, 33 freehold commercial plots, 25 expandable housing scheme plots and 6 different restaurant units on a license fee basis were also a part of the auction. Officials report that 18 function sites, 36 freehold residential plots. 24 kiosks, 27 freehold industrial plots and 125 freehold built-up shop units have also been added to the DDA inventory.
The DDA Housing Scheme 2022 is ideal for those who are unable to purchase properties at full price because of economic constraints and would like to own one, nonetheless. In tandem with the Prime Minister’s vision of making housing affordable for all, this scheme – by extension, strives to make property purchase possible across income strata, for aspiring property owners. This scheme is also similar to the CLSS scheme under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY), which offers credit linked subsidy of up to Rs.2.67 lakh to three categories of applicants divided on income.
DDA Special Housing Scheme 2021-22 Details
An important development in the scheme in 2022 is its progression to going completely online. Applicants can make payments online, using the DDA software portal itself (AWAAS), eliminating using a third-party lender’s portal altogether. The scheme’s commitment to online access will also mean the draw for the next round will be streamed for all to see.
In addition to the scheme’s online adoption, more flats have been added to the inventory. With many flats being surrendered under the scheme, the regulatory authority has announced a “first come, first serve” policy for those inventories that are not in demand. One of the most sought after DDA Housing Scheme projects – The Jasola Pocket 9B, which offers HIG flats, registered a surrender of nearly 175 flats – all 3 BHK apartments with a multi-level parking facility. This not only means that applicants have more flats in the pool to choose from, but also saves the DDA a substantial amount on maintenance charges, as the flats will soon be occupied by new residents. The draw for these flats will follow the first draw, after which 20% of the waitlisted applicants will be allowed to participate.
