Who can have DDA Flat in 2017?

The dream of your home will be completed now.  New Housing Scheme of Delhi Development Authority (DDA) has been launched on June 30, 2017. DDA will allocate 12,000 flats under this scheme. Most of the DDA flats are in Rohini, Dwarka, Narela, Vasant Kunj and Jasola. Of these 10,000 flats are housing schemes of 2014 and 2,000 are lying vacant.
If you are also thinking of applying for flats under the DDA's housing scheme, here are the rules.

Who can apply?
Any citizen of the country whose age is 18 years or older can apply online or offline. The applicant should not have any plot or flat in Delhi. Also, there should also not be any flat in the name of the unmarried children. There can be only one applicant. Both husband and wife can apply, but if both get flat, only one will get flat.

Existing terms and conditions
- DDA has arranged to impose penalty on many levels this time to curb non-serious buyers and check market speculation.

-Under the DDA Housing Scheme 2017, the Authority will offer 13,000 residential flats for EWS, LIG, MIG, and HIG including public flats.

-According to the officials, DDA Housing Scheme 2017 is already connected to the Prime Minister's Housing Scheme (PMAY). This will be an option to take advantage of the PMAY plan but in order to take advantage of the PMH housing scheme, the applicant must meet the eligibility criteria of the PMAY plan.

-DDA has also removed the lock-in period rule. Under the rules, husband and wife can apply for this scheme, but if both get an allocation then one of them will have to return the flat.

-For the LIG (lower income group) category, the registration fee will be Rs. 1 lakh, whereas for middle income and high income category flats, a fee of Rs. 2 lakh will be charged.

An official of DDA said, "If a prospective buyer withdraws his application before the withdrawal date, then no amount will be deducted from his registration fee. Second, any buyer will be removed after the draw date but before the demand letter is issued. If so, 25 percent of the registration fee will be seized.

-If the demand letter is issued but if the flat is returned within 90 days then 50 percent of the fees will be seized and for the next period the full registration fee will be seized.
