Of the 15,000 houses, nearly 8,000 are ready for possession, while the rest are in various stages of completion. Sources in the DDA told Newsline that while the authority was not keen to announce a housing scheme before the Games, it was spending a lot of money hiring security personnel to guard completed units and ensure that fittings and fixtures were not stolen.
"We are currently working out the costing on these flats," Nigam said. The new scheme will also include houses in D-6, Vasant Kunj that are currently being constructed for the Commonwealth Games.
DDA member Nand Lal Finance, explained that the new scheme will be introduced with a new maintenance policy. Under the new policy, a certain maintenance charge will be added to the cost of flats. The charge will cover 30 years of maintenance by the DDA, including works like painting and fixing flaws in the external structure.
The last DDA housing scheme was announced in September 2008, when the authority put up 5,328 houses up for a draw. The authority received nearly six lakh applications, the draw for which was held in December 2008. Officials expect that the new scheme will draw at least 10 lakh applicants. After the draw in December 2008, it emerged that a cartel of property dealers later arrested by the Economic Offences Wing had tried to manipulate the allotment system by submitting doctored applications.
