New Delhi: The Delhi Development Authority’s (DDA’s) largest ever housing scheme will be rolled out by July end, offering over 26,000 flats across various categories, with most of them being built with “green technology”, a top DDA official said on Sunday.

“We have 24,000 one-room apartments and another 2,000-2,500 flats lined up in the DDA, 2014, housing scheme. The houses will be spread across Rohini, Narela and Dwarka and will be priced from `14-15 lakh to `1 crore,” DDA vice-chairman Balvinder Kumar told PTI.

The much-awaited scheme comes four years after the DDA offered over 16,000 flats in its 2010 scheme.

“While 24,000 flats will be low-cost, the remaining 2,000-2,500 flats will be available across LIG, MIG and HIG categories. We will soon hold a meeting to discuss whether the one-room flats would be made available to all or only to the economically weaker sections,” Kumar said.

Most of the houses are pre-fabricated and will “have green features, used for the first time in DDA houses”, he said, adding that they are being built in accordance with the 2021 Delhi master plan.

According to Kumar, “By July, 15,000 flats should be ready, another major chunk by December end and, finally, about 1,000 will be completed by March next year.”

Once the work is over, the flats would be made available to the applicants through draw of lots, he said.

According to Kumar, 15,000 flats will be ready by July, with another “major chunk” by December end and the remainder, around 1,000, by March 2015, and they will be made available to applicants once work is completed, through a draw of lots.
