New Delhi:  Delhi Development Authority (DDA) will soon start the construction of 30,000 cheaper flats, which will enable Delhiites to get a chance to own their dream house at cheaper rates.

Under this proposed project, DDA will build 25,000 LIG (Lower Income Group) flats and rest EWS (Economically weaker sections) flats. Most of the flats will be constructed in Narela and the rest in Rohini.

According to sources, under the Rs 2000- crore project, 24,660 LIG flats and the rest EWS flats will be constructed. The costs of construction could be ascertained on the distribution of the tenders in March 2012.

A DDA official said, “A conference will be held before bidding where suggestion of the builders will be considered. Tenders will be allotted by March 2012. The builders will get a time of 36 weeks for the completion of all the flats.

According to sources, DDA vice chairman G S Patnaik has asked the officers to promote the ‘Pre-Fab’ technology, so that people get houses at cheaper rates.

Government plans to demolish the houses located on the urban extension road. DDA has planned large scale projects for the construction of EWS flats for accommodating the displaced people.

DDA spokesperson Neemodhar said, “DDA is working seriously on this and will try to start construction of the flats by April 2012.
