Those who have got flats in the draw for Delhi Development Authority’s (DDA) housing scheme 2010, will have to wait for some more time to get possession of the flats.
In response to allegations of bungling in the draw of lots held on Monday, the land development agency said the genuineness of the applicants and the documents is to be verified at appropriate level for which letters are being issued to the successful allottees. “The demand-cum-allotment letters will be issued only on verification of the documents and of the allottees,” a DDA spokesperson said.
Details of all documents to be submitted for seeking possession will be issued to the applicants along with the demand-cum-allotment letter. The process could take up to two months as the verification will be done in batches, for which appropriate officers have been designated.
The Delhi unit of Bharatiya Janata Party had alleged foul play in the draw and demanded a CBI probe, citing two instances where apparently houses were allotted to three or more members of the same family.
It was alleged that four flats have been allotted to a Jain family in the city, citing the fact that the father’s name of all the applicants was the same — Sunil Kumar Jain. DDA clarified that the applicants to whom the flats were allotted — Vivek Jain, Sameer Jain and Bhanu Jain —have different addresses and don’t belong to the same family.
“All the applicants have the same father’s name but they have different addresses, different PAN cards and are not members of the same family,” the spokesperson said.
In another case, where three members of the same family have got flats in the same area, the spokesperson said, “The three siblings had applied for flats in Kondli Gharoli under the scheduled caste category for which there is a reservation of 17.5%.”
“All three siblings are major and independent and can, therefore, be allotted flats under the scheme. A family unit consists of husband, wife and dependents. The draw was held on the basis of selection of random numbers,” she added.
