DDA Application Form for Flats Scheme 2017
The branch commissioner of Delhi Development Authority (DDA) elucidated that the forms shall be available for purchase only in select branches of banks till the last date that is 11th August 2017. This housing scheme has been directly linked with Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana which implies that people will get subsidies on interest if they take a bank loan for payment for the flats.
There are certain yardsticks for a person to avail the benefits of PMAY. They should not have a concrete house in Delhi. Their annual income should be less than 3 lakhs of rupees if they are applying for houses that fall under EWS category. The urban body of Delhi Development
Authority has tied up with seven banks to facilitate the sale of application forms and scheme related transactions. The seven banks involved in the housing scheme is Axis Bank, Yes Bank, Bank of Baroda, Central Bank, State Bank of India, Kotak Mahindra Bank, HDFC, ICICI Bank and DDA Counter in Vikas Sadan, INA.
The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) has proposed multiple penal measures this time to deter buyers who are not serious and check market speculation. If a potential buyer withdraws his application before the date of draws, no money shall be forfeited or deducted but if a potential buyer withdraws his application after the date of draws, 25 percent of the application money shall be forfeited by the Delhi Development Authority’s Urban Body.
If one surrenders the flat within 90 days of issuing of demand letter, 50 percent of the application fee would be forfeited. Beyond 90 days of issuing of demand letter, the entire registration fee shall be forfeited in case customer surrenders the flat. Under the rules of DDA, both husband and wife can apply for the scheme separately but in case, both receive allotment of flats, one of the two have to give up after mutual discussion.
Most of the flats that are available for sale this year are flats that were surrendered because they were too small for occupancy or the neighborhood was inaccessible and underdeveloped. Lt Governed Anil Baijal who is also the chairman of DDA had given clear instructions to his subordinate to ensure better accessibility, connectivity and development in these areas before the housing scheme was launched this year.
Connectivity problems and development problems are expected to be solved by the time these flats are occupied by new groups of people and families this year. DDA Flats Application forms are available not only offline in branches of certain banks or Vikas Sadan but also online. The DDA has planned to put the entire procedure online to make it faster and efficient.
The forms for application shall be available online and so would be refund procedures. These would reduce long queues of flat buyers and save their times at headquarters. The process would also be smoother considering online operation. It would be easily accessible by serious buyers who might not make it to the headquarters for unforeseen circumstances.
The DDA Housing Scheme that was launched in 2014 offered 25,040 flats that were from different categories and the price ranged between 7 lakh rupees to 1.2 crores. The online response was overwhelming and the website crashed soon after it was launched. A similar upheaval and overwhelming response can be expected this year and logically, it is also awaited.
