DDA draw result is here
The DDA on Monday carried out the biggest draw of lots to allot over 16,100 flats under its housing scheme, fulfilling the dreams of many to have a roof in the national capital.
The draw was held in nearby Noida to decide the fate of 7.5 lakh applications.
Applicants thronged cyber cafes as well as their home and office computers as the Delhi Development Authority put the results of the draw on its website in the evening. A DDA spokesperson said the list of successful applicants will also be published in major newspapers on Tuesday.
The draw was held in the morning in the Noida Sector-62 office of the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC), whose help was taken by the DDA for the computerised lottery which went on for two hours and 45 minutes.
However, thousands of hopefuls who gathered in front of the C-DAC office, were disappointed as they were neither allowed inside to watch the proceedings nor video screens were installed outside for them.
Many were heard complaining that they had come from far-off places after coming to know from media that screens will be installed for the public to watch the proceedings. Some said that after last time's experience, when allegations of irregularities cropped up after the draw for its housing scheme, DDA should have been more transparent.
"Why it is shrouded in secrecy? It should have been more transparent," said S Pandey, an advocate whose son had applied for a flat under the scheme.
Asked about the allegations of irregularities during the last draw of lots, DDA officials said all checks and balances were in place and independent observers were there.
Only a handful of mediapersons were allowed into a hall on the first floor with a screen whereas the draw was held on the ground floor, watched by observers -- Prabhat Kumar of ICRISAT, B V Rao, editor of Governance Now, Udai Shankar, director (finance) in ministry of development of north east region and C K Chaturvedi, additional district judge of Saket.
The DDA had earlier said that as there is limited space at the C-DAC premises, it will be difficult to accommodate everyone wishing to witness the draw. For the first time, it was held in Noida and not in the DDA headquarters here as the agency said C-DAC only has the equipments needed for the draw.
The flats, located in areas like Vasant Kunj, Mukherjee Nagar, Motia Khan, Jasola, Dwarka, Rohini, Narela, Jaffarabad, Kondli and Gharoli, were given under categories like economically weaker section (EWS), one-room tenement, one-bedroom, two-bedrooms and three-bedrooms. The prices ranged from Rs 9 lakh to Rs Rs 1.12 crore.
The scheme was launched on November 25, 2010. "An allotment letter will be issued within next 15 days to all successful allottees," an official said.

DDA draw of lots for 16,000 flats next week
Your dreams of owning a house under Delhi Development Authority’s (DDA) housing scheme could soon turn into reality. DDA is going to hold a draw of lots to select the successful applicants next Monday. According to the land agency, this housing scheme is the biggest ever with 16,000 flats on offer. A total of 7.4 lakh people have applied under the scheme. The possession of flats will, however, take place towards the end of the year only.
This time the draw of lots will not take place at Vikas Sadan, DDA’s headquarters, but will take place in Noida. “The draw will take place in the office of another central government department, CDAC, located in Noida. A big screen TV will be put up outside their office for anyone who wants to view the process live. No outsiders will be allowed inside the hall where the draw will be held as the premises is not large enough,” said a DDA official. The one, two and three-bedroom flats on offer are located in Vasant Kunj, Mukherjee Nagar, Motia Khan, Jasola, Dwarka, Rohini, Narela, Jaffarabad, etc. The prices of flats range from Rs 9 lakh to Rs 1.12 crore.
The housing scheme was launched on November 25, 2010, and the registration amount varied from Rs 1.5 lakh to Rs 50,000 depending on the type of flat. “The names of the successful applicants will be on the DDA website —www.dda.org.in — and will also be published in major newspapers,” said an official. After the draw of lots is over, the allotmentcum-demand letters will be dispatched through post. The registration fee which was deposited at the time of application will be returned to the unsuccessful applicants by the end of April. “The person’s bank shall be responsible for the dispatch of refund cheques to the unsuccessful applicants,” said an official.
The allottee will be liable to make the payment for the flats within 90 days from the date of issue of demand letter without interest. Thereafter, the allottee is liable to deposit the amount in not more than 90 days along with payment of 15% interest. If the payment is not made within 180 days from the date of demand letter, allotment of the flat will be cancelled. All allotments shall be made on a freehold basis. The title will be transferred only when conveyance deed is executed in favour of the allottee,” added an official.
