Landowners who have land of any size can now easily participate under the land pooling policy. However, the minimum area to be taken up for development will be two hectares. "With 200 FAR, Delhi will be providing 17 lakh dwelling units to house 76 lakh persons. Differential land return in two categories has been replaced with uniform division of land in the modified policy, thereby benefitting even to small landholders or farmers.

The DDA decided to reduce the cost of EWS flats in Narela, being offered under the new Online Housing Scheme 2019, by giving a concession of up to 40% to allottees, officials said. The scheme, which ended on June 10, is for sale of nearly 18,000 newly-built flats in Delhi’s Vasant Kunj and Narela residential areas, for which the DDA has received about 1300 applications.

“The DDA approved a proposal, to reduce the cost of EWS flats in Delhi, part of the online Housing Scheme 2019, by up to 40% of the construction cost,” the DDA said in a statement. The decision was made, taking into consideration the income criteria of allottees of EWS category.DDA has also provided shuttle bus service from Jahangirpuri Metro Station to Narela every weekend and public holidays till the scheme is open.

Bus service is easily available for various pockets located at Narela for the convenience of the public to visit the site and analyze the sample flats, as well as satisfy themselves with the location and other infrastructure available in the area. The DDA said it is developing Narela sub-city by providing an infrastructure of institutional, commercial nature and sports facilities.

Under the Land Pooling Policy, over five lakh of the 17 lakh houses will be built for the economically weaker sections, the housing authority said, agencies will develop for public facilities like roads, schools, hospitals, community centers on the part of pooled land and will return a portion of the plot to farmers who can later manage housing projects with the help of private builders and In order to inform farmers, who will have to pool in their land parcels, about the policy’s benefits, DDA will launch an awareness campaign in villages. The agency has made promotional videos to make them easily understandable.

The development in the land pooling policy has to consider the availability of resources like water requirement of land for physical and social infrastructure and impact on the environment. Planned with an aim to provide affordable housing in Delhi, the policy is also expected to trigger huge economic, social and civic development of the city. It is likely to benefit lakhs of farmers while generating immense investment opportunities.
