Twenty days after it launched its biggest ever housing scheme and halfway through it, the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) has realised that the prices of some flats have been wrongly printed in the scheme brochure.
DDA had launched the scheme on September 1 and it is supposed to remain open till October 9. The number of flats on offer is 25,034, which are mainly located in Rohini, Narela and Dwarka, apart from a few other areas.
In a public notice on Sunday, DDA announced that the prices of 40 one-room, extendable type flats in Rohini’s Sector 20 and 25 should be read as `21.40 lakh instead of `19.80 lakh, as printed in the brochure. One three-bedroom flat in Shalimar Bagh is actually priced at `46.50 lakh instead of `37.50 lakh, it said.
In the brochure, these flats are shown at serial number 5 and 17 and have the locality code of 15 and 51, respectively. In the corrigendum, DDA has asked applicants to take these changes into consideration while applying for these flats in the housing scheme form.
“Flat prices provided in the housing scheme brochure are always indicative and tentative, which we have mentioned in the brochure. DDA has not revised prices of any flat and the corrigendum has been issued because an inadvertent error had crept in,” said a DDA spokesperson. “It could be a calculation or clerical error but DDA has not recalculated prices of any flat, otherwise prices of only 41 out of 25,034 flats only would have not been revised” she said.
As of date, DDA has sold approximately 14 lakh forms but the number of applications received is not very high.
