If you have applied for a flat in Delhi Development Authority's (DDA) housing scheme, the wait could be over on Monday.
DDA, the country's biggest land development agency, will hold the draw of lots to select successful applicants who had applied for housing scheme on April 18, sources said. The housing scheme, DDA's biggest ever, was launched on November 25, 2010 with nearly 16,000 flats on offer.
Unlike its previous housing scheme, this time the draw of lots will not happen at Vikas Sadan, DDA's headquarter. "The draw will take place behind closed doors in the office of another central government department, located in Noida," said a senior DDA official who didn't wish to be named.
"No outsiders will be allowed to enter the hall where the draw will be held as the premises are not large enough," he added.
The names of the successful applicants will be put on the DDA website www.dda.org.in and will also be published in major newspapers.
Out of all those who had applied in the housing scheme, the approximate number of those found eligible is 7.4 lakh. The registration amount of Rs1.5 lakh, which were deposited at the time of application, will be returned to unsuccessful applicants after some time.
The scheme was kept open from November 25 and December 24 and DDA had said then that the draw would be held within four months after the last day of closure.
The one, two and three bedroom flats that are on offer are located in areas like such as Vasant Kunj, Mukherjee Nagar, Motia Khan, Jasola, Dwarka, Rohini, Narela, Jaffarabad, Kondli and Gharoli. There is a mix of one bedroom, two bedroom and three bedroom houses and the prices range from Rs9 lakh to Rs1.12 crore.
