NEW DELHI: Delhi Development Authority (DDA) started online booking for around 10,000 flats in several categories across the city on Thursday. All these flats are ready to move in, freehold properties and will be sold on first come, first served (FCFS) basis.


Among the properties are around 8,000 newly constructed flats for the economically weaker section (EWS) and low-income group (LIG) categories in Narela under Phase III of Diwali Special Housing Scheme.


“DDA launched Diwali Special Housing Scheme 2023 on FCFS basis on Nov 24 with only newly constructed flats on offer. Under the scheme, some premium properties were earlier offered through e-auction. Now DDA is continuing with the sale of 7,931 flats under the same scheme to provide affordable housing to the general public,” the authority stated. It included 1,420 EWS flats in Sector G7 and 6,511 flats in Pocket II Narela.


“These flats are being offered at reasonable prices in addition to the flats in ongoing Phase I and II of the Diwali scheme,” said an official. DDA claims that under phases I and II, more than 3,000 flats have been sold so far.


The registration also started for 445 middle-income group (MIG) flats at Sector A1-A4, Narela under the old scheme (FCFS Phase IV) on Thursday and these flats are proposed to be offered at a discounted rate. The scheme was put on hold when the e-auction process started and has been revived.


“The authority recently approved a proposal to offer the carried-forward MIG flats at Sector A1-A4, Narela under FCFS Phase IV at a discount of 15% to general public and at a discount of 25% for all govt employees, including Centre and state, autonomous bodies, local bodies and PSUs as well as DDA’s retired employees,” DDA stated. With 15% discount, the cost of a flat will range from Rs 85-87 lakh, and with 25% discount, Rs 75-77 lakh, it added.


Taking note of the public demand for a suitable flat in other areas as well at reasonable rates, DDA is offering flats of various categories at old rates quoted in FCFS IV 2023. It includes 1,042 high-income group (HIG) and MIG flats from FCFS Phase IV 2023 at Jasola, Rohini, Loknayak Puram and Siraspur.


There are eight HIG flats in Jasola, costing Rs 2-2.1 crore. In Rohini, 810 LIG flats are on offer in Sector 34 and 28 in Sector 35, which will cost tentatively Rs 14 lakh. DDA is also offering 107 LIG flats in pockets A1 & C2, Siraspur, costing Rs 17 lakh, and 89 in pockets A1 and C2 in Loknayak Puram for Rs 26-27 lakh.
