NEW DELHI: A Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) report has pointed out “lack of coordination” between Delhi Development Authority (DDA) and Delhi government leading to non-implementation of the land pooling policy approved by the Centre in 2013 in the capital.

The land pooling policy was not operationalised due to lack of coordination between DDA and Delhi government, resulting in delay of land development, stated the CAG report tabled on Friday in Parliament.

Acquisition of land is carried out by Delhi government but DDA, which comes under the lieutinent governor’s office, is responsible for its management and development.

“Scrutiny of records revealed many instances of lack of coordination between DDA and Delhi government in acuqisition proceedings, release of compensation and enhanced compensation.

An amount of Rs 1,001.84 crore was released by DDA to Delhi government for the land acquired between 2010-11 to 2014-15 for which utilisation certificates (UCs) were awaited till October 2016.
