New Delhi: The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) is working on a scheme to construct 30,000 new flats in the national capital and construction work for the success of the scheme has been expedited. These flats would mostly be allotted to those who belong to the economically weaker section (EWS) and low income group (LIG) categories.
“Our main concern would be on this scheme in the upcoming budget session which is to be held in February and we also try to provide a proper housing facility for the people of Delhi,” a top DDA official said. He added that all the flats would be ready by the end of this year.
These flats are to be constructed in the areas like Dwarka, Narela, Rohini and Siraspur. Construction of around 4740 flats is in progress in Siraspur, whereas in Dwarka, LIG flats are being constructed with the help of prefab technology.
Apart from these, construction of 1,400 flats for higher income group (HIG) is also in progress in Dwarka and about Rs 400 crore has been estimated for this. This project is assumed to be completed by 2013, but sources said the construction would be completed by next year.
