Around 21,000 families waiting for the past 31 years for land in Rohini to build their dream home can finally breathe easy. The DDA on Wednesday told the Delhi high court that steps are being taken to hand over possession of the plots within 14 months after developing them. DDA also said it was in a position to begin draw of lots soon.

“Plots will be developed. Help of DJB and MCD is being taken for sewerage facilities, water supply and construction of storm water drain. The scheme is ready but only the approval is pending,” DDA counsel Rajiv Bansal told a bench headed by acting chief justice AK Sikri.

Bansal has been asked to file an affidavit by March 14.

The court was hearing a PIL filed by an applicant Rahul Gupta in 2009. The 21,000 people were applicants for middle-income, low-income and Janta (poor) category plots of the Rohini Residential Scheme 1981.
