    NEW DELHI: Delhi Development Authority (DDA), which has been aiming towards more digitalisation to make all its public dealing work online, will now switch over conversion of DDA flats from leasehold to freehold completely online from Tuesday.

    “It has been decided that the conversion process of DDA flats will be in online mode with effect from June 1,” the land development agency said in a statement. “This way the public can avail of them without physically visiting offices during the pandemic.”

    DDA said that no application for conversion would be accepted in offline mode and wouldn’t be processed by the housing department. People who want to apply for conversion of their flats from leasehold to freehold would have to do it online on the DDA website.

        DPCC starts crackdown on polluting units in hotspots

        TNN / Jun 9, 2021, 04:37 IST

        New Delhi: Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC) has started taking action against polluting units in the identified pollution hotspots in the capital.

        DPCC recently carried out an inspection of 130 units situated in Sonia Vihar. It was found that 128 of these were being used as godowns while two have been sealed for causing pollution. DPCC officials said such drives will be conducted in other hotspots of the city also.

        According to a report submitted to National Green Tribunal (NGT), DPCC — along with EDMC and the district administration — had conducted an inspection. “Two units which were engaged in bottle cleaning and water packaging in pouch were sealed as they were violating norms. They were also found functional without obtaining mandatory permission. Environmental damage compensation of Rs 1 lakh each has been imposed on both units,” said the report.

        A DPCC official said, “Through orders of various courts and NGT, we have been directed to ensure implementation of measures to control various factors which are contributing to pollution in Delhi.” TNN

          DDA to sanction building plans for in-situ slum rehabilitation projects under PMAY

          In view of the current economic situation, the existing rates of additional FAR and conversion charges are not to be increased for all categories of properties and land rates for the computation of misuse charges, they added.
          NEW DELHI: The DDA approved modifications in the Unified Building Byelaws 2016 on Tuesday, granting exemption from notice and building permits for the installation of liquid medical oxygen plants on the ground level of hospitals, subject to certain conditions, officials said.

          The move seeks to ensure that the medical oxygen infrastructure is facilitated in the city hospitals to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, they added.

          This was among the several proposals cleared by the urban body at its Authority meeting held online and chaired by Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal.

          After detailed deliberations, many key proposals were approved by the Authority, including to allow the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) to undertake the development of and sanction building plans for its in situ slum rehabilitation projects under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) falling in the denotified areas, the officials said.

          To ensure that the medical oxygen infrastructure is facilitated in the city hospitals to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, the Authority has approved the amendment to the Unified Building Bye Laws 2016, the DDA said in a release.

          The amendment will allow oxygen-related infrastructure such as PSA (pressure swing adsorption) plants, liquid medical oxygen etc. free from FAR (floor-area ratio) and ground coverage in the setback or open area of the existing hospital premises, it added.

          Further, no notice and building permit will be required from the sanctioning authority for the erection or installation of a PSA plant or a liquid medical oxygen plant and similar related infrastructure in hospitals if it is on the ground level and in open or setback areas. However, fire safety clearance, PESO and other mandatory clearances, wherever applicable, will be required.

          This step will go a long way to augment the infrastructure related to oxygen in Delhi. It will reduce the city's reliance on other states for the life-saving gas, the DDA said.

          Further, according to information received from the Delhi Fire Services, the oxygen plants having an area of less than 250 square metre are not covered under Rule 27(9) of the Delhi Fire Service Rules 2010 and therefore, a fire safety certificate is not required, subject to certain conditions on ensuring safety measures.

          The proposed amendment will now be sent to the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs for the final approval. On the receipt of the approval, it shall be notified by the DDA.

          A proposal on disposal of group housing plots for the construction of small-size dwelling units, not exceeding a carpet area of 60 sq.mtr, for providing affordable houses was also given the nod, the officials said.

          In view of the current economic situation, the existing rates of additional FAR and conversion charges are not to be increased for all categories of properties and land rates for the computation of misuse charges, they added.

          A proposal on extension of the date of approval for the redevelopment plans of standalone godowns in the non-conforming areas up to December 31, 2023 and extension of the existing rates of EDCs up to August 15, 2022, leviable on the godowns and godown clusters in Narela, was also approved.

          A proposal to modify the Master Plan of Delhi 2021 with respect to the development control norms for unauthorised colonies for final notification by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs was also given a nod by the Authority.

          Public comments and suggestions will be invited on a proposal for change in land use from residential (redevelopment) to transportation for a multi-level car parking at Idgah Road, Zone A, the officials said.

          A proposal on a review of the policy for the fixation of the reserve price in respect of unsold inventory of built-up shops and units by effecting a reduction in the reserve price was also given a go-ahead at the meeting

            Affordable, quality housing gets priority in draft Delhi master plan 2041

            The draft master plan, which has been placed in the public domain to invite objections and suggestions from common citizens, will facilitate Delhi's development by assessing the present condition and guiding how to achieve the desired development over the next 20 years.
            NEW DELHI: Affordable rental housing, residential areas with complete facilities and small format housing will be some of the key focus areas of housing development in the national capital, according to the draft Master Plan for Delhi (MPD) 2041.

            The draft master plan, which has been placed in the public domain to invite objections and suggestions from common citizens, will facilitate Delhi's development by assessing the present condition and guiding how to achieve the desired development over the next 20 years.

            It has been prepared by the Delhi Development Authority (DDA).

            The plan says that around 28.4 per cent of households live in rental accommodation (Census, 2011) and it is estimated that the number would have increased over the last decade.

            According to the Socio-Economic Survey of Delhi of 2018-19, over 32 per cent of the population are migrants and prefer rental housing due to low entry and exit costs. Most of this rental housing demand is being catered by unplanned settlements, with issues of tenure insecurity and compromised living conditions.

            "There is a need to address the housing needs of students, single working men and women, migrants, etc. through affordable housing, rental housing, hostels, studio apartments, serviced apartments, dormitories, etc," it says.

            The document says 11 per cent of the Census Houses (including houses used as residence and residence-cum-other-uses) in Delhi are vacant (Census, 2011) and that there is a potential to bring such stock back into circulation through rental options.

            Laying down the road map, the draft says that future housing supply shall be met through large scale development of sectors in Delhi's greenfield areas using the land pooling model. Identified land pooling areas have the potential to develop 17-20 lakh dwelling units.

            It cites how metropolitan cities across the world maintain a diversified rental housing stock providing residents and migrants tenure flexibility, geographical mobility and affordability.

            A paradigm shift is envisaged in the supply scenario, with the private sector leading the development or redevelopment of housing over the plan period, it added.

            "Public agencies shall play the role of a 'facilitator' and ensure ease of doing business, through appropriate regulatory environment," the draft states.

            On rental housing, it says, "A mix of rental options such as affordable rentals with controlled rents, market rental units, rent-to-own models may be explored. Public agencies may also consider bringing their unsold/vacant public housing stock into the rental market to ensure utilisation of such assets."

            Talking about Affordable Public Rental Housing (APRH), the plan proposes that DDA and other public agencies may take up such projects on public lands close to activity centres (industrial areas, educational hubs, etc.) to improve the availability of affordable rental stock.

            "The large number of EWS housing units created as part of group housing projects provide opportunities to improve the availability of affordable rental housing stock. Suitable models may be explored for facilitating the same. Employer Housing projects of government agencies may be exempted from provision of EWS housing after approval of competent authority," it says.

            The plan also proposes the development of low density and low floor area ratio (FAR) residential areas within the Green Development Area and regeneration of existing areas, both in terms of improvement of existing stock and creation of new units through densification.

            All housing areas shall be developed as complete neighbourhoods with requisite local facilities within walking distance. Such facilities shall be provided as part of the residential layout, it says.

            "In order to address the housing needs of the migrant population across all income groups, rental and affordable housing shall be promoted within the city, particularly in areas closer to transit. Public projects for Transit-Oriented Development or large-scale regeneration may especially focus on creating such affordable rental housing options," it says.

            The plan also proposes incentives for encouraging the private sector to provide rental housing or other non-ownership formats like serviced apartments, worker housing, etc.

            "In order to improve management of such rental assets, public agencies may seek the services of rental management agencies and housing aggregators. An online portal giving information regarding availability, location, rentals, etc. shall be created," it says.

            The draft states that a conducive environment for rental housing shall be further improved by revising the existing rental acts, laws and rules.

            Taking into consideration the limited availability of land, the plan proposes to maximise the housing supply by ensuring the development of small format housing of 40 to 60 square metres.

            Development in the land pooling areas provides opportunities for creating multiple housing typologies. At the sector level, 25 per cent of the net residential FAR shall be utilised for creating small-format housing.

            On the regeneration of existing planned residential areas, the draft says the process will enable optimal utilisation of urban land to create new housing and improve the quality of housing.

            "For all planned residential areas, other than government-owned housing and slum rehabilitation schemes, regeneration would primarily be a private sector-led initiative," it says.

            Group housing shall be preferable as part of regeneration schemes and such projects shall provide affordable housing as per the MPD provisions.

            On the regeneration of unplanned residential areas like unauthorised colonies, the draft states that appropriate incentives and relaxations in norms shall be provided for facilitating amalgamation and joint regeneration of areas.

              Vertical mixing, tradeable FAR, green-blue factor in draft Delhi master plan-2041

              The draft MPD-2041, encompassing the needs of the city in the next 20 years, prepared by the Delhi Development Authority(DDA) has been thrown open inviting suggestions and objections of public within the next 45 days.
              NEW DELHI: The draft Master Plan of Delhi (MPD) 2041 put in public domain by the DDA on Wednesday introduces vertical mixing, tradeable floor area ratio and green-blue factor for the future-ready capital of the country.

              The draft MPD-2041, encompassing the needs of the city in the next 20 years, prepared by the Delhi Development Authority(DDA) has been thrown open inviting suggestions and objections of public within the next 45 days.

              Three significant additions to the development control norms in the draft MPD are vertical mixing, green-blue factor and tradeable floor area, or transferable development eight (TDR).

              Development control norms are special provisions that regulate development within the framework of the land use plan and policies contained in the Master Plan of Delhi (MPD).

              The norms envisage improvement in the quality of built and natural environment by promoting appropriate development on all sites in a city.

              All development, extension, change of use, site alteration, relocation, reconstruction and any building or other structure will be governed by these norms.

              "Mixed use development and vertical mixing of compatible uses within plots will be promoted in the city, facilitating availability of all services, work centres and homes within close vicinity of each other. This will facilitate self-sufficient isolation zones as required," the draft document said.

              Vertical mixing is combination of different facilities or services within the same building or a plot. Generally, the lower floors have commercial set-ups such as retail stores and the upper floors are kept for private uses -- offices, residential units or guest houses, it said.

              The provision of green-blue factor (BGF) aims to ensure and maintain desired levels of green and blue elements in new development projects.

              This feature allows roof gardens, terrace gardens, green walls, landscaped structures in all development projects.

              Under the TDR policy, non-utilised FAR (floor area ratio) is allowed to be used at other sites. The TDR will only be awarded where land or development rights are meant for a public purpose such as provision of essential infrastructure, regeneration of historic sites, housing for urban poor, the draft said.

              The MPD-2041 has been prepared on GIS (geographic Information system) platform considering the existing ground conditions.

              Delhi has been divided into 18 planning zones. In order to control the development, the areas have been identified into 27 use zones.

              The use zones have been classified broadly in nine categories of land uses namely residential, commercial, industrial, recreational, transportation, utility, government, public and semi-public facilities and green belt and water body.

                No New Landfill, Focus On Local Handling Of Waste

                Paras Singh / TNN / Jun 12, 2021, 04:41 IST

                New Delhi: With very poor community sanitation, consistently poor national Swacchta rankings and oversaturated landfills, Delhi has been a laggard in the management of the municipal solid waste. With this failure of Master Plan for Delhi 2021 in mind, the draft MPD41 wants no new landfill sites to be created and 'minimum waste localities' to be developed. With the aim of disposing of waste in a decentralised manner, the new plan is to repurpose the existing waste management infrastructure and treat the bulk of municipal waste locally, as close to the generation site as possible.

                MPD41 also encourages setting up of large composting farms in green development areas (GDA) to be created on the city’s periphery and using large parks for composting or biomethanation of wet waste at the community level.

                Delhi currently generates 12,350 tonnes of solid waste daily and this is expected to rise to 18,915 tonnes by 2041. Currently, of the total waste generated, only 85% is collected by the municipal corporations and much of it — 55% — ends up in the three overexploited landfills in Okhla, Ghazipur and Bhalswa.

                The draft pushes for the creation of minimum waste localities, where all wet waste is treated locally while the dry waste is sent to recycling centres and material recovery centres to be set up to replace large dhalaos. All new development under the land pooling scheme, regeneration schemes or GDA have to be minimum waste localities.

                The local bodies can now utilise portions of large parks for composting and bio-methanation of wet waste at community level. The plan is for a 200 sq metre area for every 10,000 population and material recovery facility of 200 tonnes per day for every five lakh population plus a large, automated recovery facility spread over 10,000-20,000 sq m at the city level. The waste management infra is to be repurposed and the existing dhalaos will be converted to material recovery facilities for waste segregation and recycling.

                Waste segregation, decentralised treatment and informal sector participation of waste pickers have already been mandated in the Solid Waste Management Rules, 2016m but their implementation has been an uphill task. The oversaturated landfills have been the most visible sign of this failure. MPD41 clearly states that the existing landfills will be incrementally reclaimed as green/recreational areas and no new landfills will be created, except those meant for dumping of inert solids. The bio-mining and reclamation project is already under way at the landfills as per the National Green Tribunal’s suo-motu order in cognisance of a TOI report.

                The draft MPD41 proposes the creation of large composting farms in the notified GDAs and the adoption of incentives/ disincentives recommended by the National Resource Efficiency Policy, 2019, to minimise the environmental impact of municipal waste.

                  New July deadline for Shahdara Lake revamp

                  TNN / Jun 13, 2021, 04:41 IST


                  New Delhi: The 14-acre lake complex in Shahdara has a new deadline of July 31, as the construction work on the project restarted recently. The Rs 15-crore urban rejuvenation project is being carried out under AMRUT urban renewal scheme.

                  Local councillors report that grass and footpath tiles in the complex have been damaged and need repair. After Sanjay Lake near Mayur Vihar, this will become the second largest lake-based recreational spot in east Delhi, which largely remains deprived of open and green spaces.

                  East Delhi Municipal Corporation mayor Nirmal Jain held a review meeting for the key infrastructure projects in east Delhi recently. The meeting discussed rejuvenation of Shahdara lake, cleaning of drains and the ongoing work in the ward block of the Swami Dayanand Hospital.

                  Jain said that Shahdara Lake is an important project. “As monsoon is arriving, this is a golden time to complete the project. All departments must coordinate and finish the renovation by end of July,” he said. “Leader of the House Parvesh Sharma said that the funds have been received for the project.

                  A senior official overseeing the work said that the lake can store 6.5 crore liters of water. Out of the Rs 15 crore allocated, Rs 14 crore have already been spent.

                  Jain said that the ongoing projects in Swami Dayanand Hospital were also reviewed. The plan to set up an oxygen plant in the hospital has been approved by the Centre and a foundation stone will be laid after the site for it is selected. “I have directed the hospital administration to complete the civil and medical work in ward no. 4 and 5 in June,” the mayor added.

                  Mukesh Kumar, director of hospital administration, said that the work order has also been given for laying a gas pipeline in the maternity ward. The redevelopment work has begun in both wards.

                    Aakash Educational's founder buys farmhouse in south Delhi for Rs 96 crore

                    Chaudhary’s purchase of Pushpanjali Farm at Bijwasan is his second big-ticket real estate transaction in the last two months and comes close on the heels of ed-tech platform Byju’s acquisition of the tutorial chain in a cash and stock deal for $950 million.
                    JC Chaudhary, the founder of Aakash Educational Services Ltd, has purchased a 5-acre farmhouse in south Delhi for around Rs 96 crore, three people aware of the deal said.

                    Chaudhary’s purchase of Pushpanjali Farm at Bijwasan is his second big-ticket real estate transaction in the last two months and comes close on the heels of ed-tech platform Byju’s acquisition of the tutorial chain in a cash and stock deal for $950 million.

                    In the first week of April, Chaudhry bought a 2,000 square yard property in south Delhi’s Vasant Vihar area for over Rs 100 crore.

                    The Covid-19 pandemic has dented Aakash’s growth plans.

                    Revenue has dropped to Rs 1,000 crore in FY21 from Rs 1,200 crore in FY20.

                    “Chaudhry was in the market looking to acquire new property for quite some time … The Vasant Vihar property was facing the main road and was one of the most expensive properties in the area,” one person said.

                    A spokesperson for Aakash declined to comment.

                    More people are looking at farmhouses amid the ongoing second Covid-19 wave, said property brokers and developers.

                    “Between the two waves, high-net worth individuals have realised the importance of open and independent spaces. That is the reason why we are seeing a lot of traction in south Delhi and Lutyens Delhi,” said Pradeep Prajapati, head of luxury residential services at IQI India.

                    Huge farmhouses in and around the national capital are in demand.

                    Wealthy businessmen and executives are looking for sprawling properties after being home-bound during the lockdowns last year and now.

                    Over 50 such transactions have been closed in the past six months, compared with an average of two to three deals a month before the virus outbreak, according to property brokers.

                    They said about 300 farmhouses ranging from Rs 10 crore to Rs 150 crore are on sale in areas such as Westend Greens, Sultanpur, Pushpanjali, Vasant Kunj, DLF Chhattarpur, Radhey Mohan Drive and Ansal Satbari.

                    Delhi is the only Indian city to have designated certain areas for farmhouses in its master plan. These areas are in clusters around Mehrauli, Panipat, Bijwasan, Rajokri and Chattarpur.

                    “Farmhouses in the Delhi NCR region are at the luxury end of the residential market, often with carefully maintained ambience and infrastructure. They are largely under personal use by the owners or leased out to long-term tenants. In either case, offering them up for tourist use would not be a concept that would appeal to many of these farmhouse owners,” said Anuj Puri, chairman of ANAROCK Property Consultants.

                    Similarly, Karjat and Khopoli near Pune, Igatpuri near Nasik and areas next to Thane near Mumbai are also generating interest for farmhouse developments. The same is true for many outlying areas around Bengaluru and Chennai.

                    Recently, India’s premium sanitaryware company Jaquar purchased three farmhouses in Delhi’s Westend Greens for around Rs 235 crore.

                    There are about 4,000 farmhouses in 18 villages in and around New Delhi, spread over half an acre to 2.5 acres each.

                      A South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) official said that they are talking to the 1,400 common service centres to help in the process of collection and organising camps.

                      “We have already organised two to three camps this weekend and the process will intensify in the coming days as we plan to make collect maximum advance for the financial year 2021-22 by June 30. All RWAs and market associations can approach us for organising such camps and we will arrange for the staff, provided there is a facility for Wi-Fi and campus to maintain social distance,” said the official.

                      The residents who visited one of these camps, however, complained about limited staff and poor arrangements. “Some people from our area visited the camp organised in Greater Kailash-I on Saturday. Most of them failed to submit the tax as the computers/laptops were hanging constantly, the staff was not supportive and there was no sufficient arrangement for waiting. For the convenience of residents, we taught them to submit tax online, but there was no mention of a 2% discount when tax is submitted online,” said MK Gupta, president of S block RWA, GK-I.

                      On this issue, the official said that the computers might be hanging due to poor connectivity or Wi-Fi issues. “Generally, the RWAs/organisers are supposed to make these arrangements and we can’t do much. But to resolve this, we plan to hire 50-60 laptops on rent with a dongle so that the operation doesn’t get affected much,” said the official. “For the 2% rebate given for submitting tax online, the facility can be availed only when the taxable amount is less than Rs 10,000,” the official added.

                      Civic bodies are giving a 3% per cent rebate for Covid-vaccinated people, and 15% rebate for depositing property tax before June 30.
