01 Jul 2017Who is eligible for these flats?

The DDA stipulation allows "any Indian citizen, 18 years of age and above" to apply.

If the applicant already owns a flat in his/his spouse/child's name then he is not eligible to apply.

In case a couple applies, in such cases, if both are allotted flats, only one can buy the property.

Buyers can expect possession of these flats by October-November 2017.

01 Jul 2017DDA assures that the flats have all facilities

Of the flats for sale, 10,000 are those that weren't occupied in the 2014 scheme.

Another 2,000 had been lying vacant.

Most of these DDA flats had been surrendered as the applicants thought they were either too small or the area underdeveloped.

However, DDA has now assured that basic amenities like roads, streetlights and water supply have now been taken care of.
