DDA invites comments on Masterplan 2021

Exactly a month after Union development minister Kamal Nath outlined his vision for Delhi to go vertical, in the mid-term review of the Master Plan 2021, Delhi Development Authority [DDA] came out with a public notice inviting objections and suggestions for the first set of 23 amendments finalised so far. The public has 90 days to file comments before the amendments go through several stages to the final notification stage.

According to the proposed modifications, the focus of the review clearly seems to be on group housing and development norms that will allow multi-storey flats to come up in planned areas. For instance, it is proposed to provide additional floor area in residential plot group housing for community needs such as community hall, creche, recreation centre, library, reading room, senior citizen club and society office.

The proposal states that additional floor area at the rate of 0.6% of the permissible area — subject to a minimum of 400 sq m and maximum of 1200 sq m — be allowed. The FAR will be above the coverage allowed for residential use.
