DDA puts off housing scheme draw

After facing last-minute technical hiccups today, DDA has postponed the draw of lots for its flagship Housing Scheme 2014, which was scheduled to be held on Sunday.

The decision comes in the wake of technical problem encountered by the housing body while holding the mock trial for the scheme at its headquarters ‘Vikas Sadan’ here and no new date has been announced.

The new scheme offers 25,034 flats EWS, LIG, MIG, HIG, Janta flats and one-room apartments.
The 22,627 one-bed room apartments were a major draw for the people this year, and DDA has received over 10 lakh applications for it. C-DAC (Centre for Development of Advanced Computing), which had conducted the draw for DDA’s last housing scheme in 2010, has been roped in this time again for the event. ‘A mock trial of the draw of DDA Housing Scheme-2014 was held today (Sunday) at Vikas Sadan in the presence of Hon’ble Judges and senior officers of DDA. ‘After the mock trial, C-DAC officials observed that mock trial has taken long time to the tune of 8-9 hours because of large number of applicants, multiple category of flats (more than four), multiple preferences for locations (34 nos.) and multiple reservations (SC, ST, Persons with Disability, Ex-Servicemen and War Widow),’ DDA said in a statement.
