- Now,DDA to offer low-priced flats
New Delhi: Didnt get allotment under Delhi Development Authoritys recent housing scheme Heres something to cheer about.
The land agency is constructing 22,000 lower income group (LIG) flats in Rohini and Narela and 19,000-odd flats for the economically weaker sections (EWS) in Rohini,Dwarka and Narela.In a first,the agency is using the prefabricated technique to construct these housing complexes.The technique ensures that the pre-casting of walls,columns and assembling of flats takes place at the site itself.
While the work on the EWS project in Rohini and Dwarka is underway,construction of the LIG flats is yet to take off.By using the pre-fabricated technique,known as 3S technology (strength,safety and speed) we will be able to ensure speedier construction of flats that are cheaper and environment-friendly.A plant will be set-up for pre-casting concrete walls,columns,beams etc at various sites, said DDA spokesperson,Neemo Dhar.Both the LIG and EWS projects have got a nod from the Delhi Urban Art Commission.
EWS flats under construction in Dwarka,Sector 23,might be replicated in other areas like Rohini,Sector 35.The approximate cost of the EWS flats would be Rs 4 lakh,lesser than the cost of flats built using the regular technology.We will also save time as the prefabricated flats will be constructed one year in advance as compared to regular flats, said an official.The cost of the LIG flats is yet to be decided but DDA claims that it will be lesser than the present price of Rs 10-19 lakh.
Regarding the allotment of these flats,officials claimed that they would include them in a housing scheme in the future.The allotment will happen through the lottery system as has been the norm till now, said an official.A housing complex under the scheme will boast of shops and parks.It will be a pedestrian-friendly area with no vehicular movement allowed inside the, said an official.
