NEW DELHI: The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) has endorsed modifications in land use in Ghazipur, Auchandi village, and Jangpura to bolster public infrastructure, alongside sanctioning housing schemes to fortify the housing sector and foster the development of the Narela sub-city, as per an official statement released on Tuesday.

The decisions were ratified during a meeting of the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) chaired by Lieutenant Governor V K Saxena, who also serves as the chairman of the department.

The statement elaborated, “Several decisions were sanctioned for housing schemes to invigorate the sector and for the development of the Narela sub-city. The authority greenlit proposals on land use alterations in the public interest – in Ghazipur for establishing RFID, in Auchandi village for the construction of an electrical sub-station, and in Jangpura for RRTS installations.”

Extensions in timelines were provided for 23 non-conforming industrial clusters for the submission of redevelopment plans. Additionally, the authority endorsed the predetermined rates for 2023-24 of Rohini phases IV and V, Tikri Kalan, and Narela.

Regarding the Diwali Special Housing Scheme 2023, the statement noted that the e-auction mode, launched on November 30, 2023, and closed on December 29, 2023, received enthusiastic responses, with 744 flats booked out of 2,093 on offer.

In efforts to incentivize housing acquisition, discounts of 15 percent to the general public and 25 percent to government employees are being offered for more than 440 flats at Sector A1-A4, Narela, under the ongoing first-come-first-serve (FCFS) scheme.

The DDA further announced the allowance for non-governmental legal entities to purchase built-up properties in bulk. Private entities within Delhi-NCR can now procure DDA residential flats in bulk for purposes such as residential staff quarters and hostels.

Furthermore, land use changes have been approved to facilitate a five-lane toll plaza at Ghazipur, a 765/400 KV Electric substation in Auchandi village, and RRTS installations in Jangpura to enhance public transportation and green energy initiatives.

The approved proposals will be forwarded to the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs for issuance of notifications, emphasizing the DDA’s commitment to infrastructure development and environmental sustainability in Delhi.
