Draw of lots for DDA housing scheme postponed
NEW DELHI: The draw of lots for Delhi Development Authority's (DDA's) Housing Scheme 2017, earlier scheduled for October, is likely to be held in the first week of November now, as the authority has been unable to collate data of applicants, said officials.
DDA officials have blamed banks for the delay. The details of total application forms submitted at banks might take some more time, due to which the draw will not be possible around Diwali, officials added.
As per rules, the DDA is required to hold the draw of lots within three months after the last date of form submission. Sources said eight banks are working to collect forms for DDA's housing scheme.
Over 41,000 applications were submitted under the scheme, for 12,000 flats across four income categories. The scheme was launched on June 30 and closed on September 11.
Earlier, the Authority had to extend the deadline due to poor response. The flats, ranging from Rs 7 lakh to over Rs 1.26 crore, are located in various colonies across Delhi.
