NEW DELHI: The computerised draw of lots for the 12,617 flats offered as part of the DDA's new housing scheme, was held on Thursday, with the first house being alloted to a disabled applicant, officials said.
Over 46,000 people had applied for the scheme, across four income categories.
The flats are located in Rohini, Dwarka, Narela, Vasant Kunj, Jasola, Pitampura, Paschim Vihar and Siraspur.
"The first allottee was one Nageshwar Rao, who got a flat in Dwarka's Sector 18-B in the HIG category. He belonged to the disabled category of applicants. The second one went to one Pradeep Kumar of the Schedule Caste (reserved) category, who also got an HIG flat, in Rohini's Sector 29," a Delhi Development Authority (DDA) official said.
The draw of lots for the 46,080 eligible applicants, started at around 12:30 pm in the Auction Hall of Vikas Sadan, DDA's headquarters, here. The list of successful applicants is now available on the DDA's website. "The process was smoothly conducted in the presence of three independent observers. The whole process was streamed live on the web," he said.
The break-up of flats are: HIG --85; MIG --403 ; LIG -- 11,757; and Janta --372.
Of the total number of flats, around 10,000 unoccupied ones are from the 2014 housing scheme, while 2,000 have been lying vacant.
The draw was overseen by a three-member team headed by a retired high court judge. It also had two IT professionals, one from IIT-Delhi and another from the National Informatics Centre (NIC) to supervise the process.
The first general category allottee was Neha Mehta, who was allotted an LIG flat in Dwarka, the urban body said.
The DDA housing scheme is linked with the Prime Minister Awas Yojna and hence, the allottees would get subsidy.
