The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) started its housing activities in 1967 to develop the capital city of Delhi in a balanced and systematic manner. DDA enables interested citizens to apply for a house, under the DDA housing scheme.
To provide affordable housing options to the Lower Income Group (LIG), Medium Income Group (MIG) & High Income Group (HIG), DDA launched more than 18,000 housing units in May 2019. Furthermore, in 2021, DDA added 1,354 flats to its scheme, located in Dwarka, Jasola, Vasant Kunj, and Manglapuri.
To date, around 6000 units are still under construction. So, there is still a chance to be amongst the lucky ones and enjoy the benefits of the DDA housing scheme. Keep reading to know more details about this scheme.
It is a dream of every family to have their own house but owing to rising costs owning a house in major cities like Delhi has become a distant dream. The main objective of DDA Housing Scheme is to provide well-furnished standard houses at a reasonable cost to the financially weaker sections of society. This scheme is not only beneficial for financially weaker sections, even the high-income groups are being offered houses at a value lower than the market price.
This housing initiative by the Delhi Development Authority has various benefits, such as the following:
DDA or Delhi Development Authority has provided a number of relaxations to economically weaker sections of the society. The main aim of relaxation or concession is to increase the participation of these people in this scheme. The authority has fixed the registration or application fees for EWS at Rs. 27,000 including the processing fee which is quite lower than the application fee for other income groups.
Moreover, in order to increase the response from this section of the populace, the Government announced a 40% reduction in the price of flats being sold under this scheme in certain areas.

If an applicant is not allotted a flat after paying the registration and application fee, then the entire registration fee is refundable. However, depending on how many days have passed since the draw, if an applicant decides to surrender their flat, the following charges are imposed:
If the application is surrendered from the draw date to the 15th day after receiving a demand-cum-allotment letter
If the application is surrendered from the 16th till the 30th day after receiving a demand-cum-allotment letter.
If the application is surrendered from the 31st till the 90th day after receiving a demand-cum-allotment letter.
If the application is surrendered after 90 days of receiving a demand-cum-allotment letter.

Applicants can make this payment on the Delhi Development Authority’s online website. One will have to generate an e-challan after clicking on the ‘Online payment for DDA flats’ option. After filling in the details and logging in, an applicant can use the following methods to make payment:
Refund of application money will be transferred to a bank account whose details the applicant provides in the application form. It is imperative that applicants provide correct bank details like account number, IFSC and bank branch for a hassle-free refund process. However, if the bank account details provided are of an NRE/NRO account, a refund will not be credited to these accounts.
Moreover, in the case of a joint application, the first applicant will receive the refund amount.
