As many as 276 EWS flats in Dwarka’s Manglapuri, among others are on sale.
The scheme is linked to the credit-linked subsidy scheme under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana – Housing for All (Urban).
The scheme has been launched online through the newly developed AWAAS software of the DDA.
With the new AWAAS software, applicants are able to complete all the formalities for the application, payment, and possession online and visit the DDA only for the process of execution of conveyance deed.
The total cost of the flats includes land premium, cost of construction and 20 percent surcharge on land premium and cost of construction in respect of HIG flats at Vasant Kunj and 10 percent surcharge on land premium and cost of construction in respect of HIG flats at Jasola and MIG flats at Dwarka, according to the information shared in the brochure of the scheme.
The cost of the unit is to be deposited within 90 days from the date of issue of demand-cum-allotment letter. This will be issued online, the brochure said.
The digitally signed possession letter will be issued online and the allottee will have to upload self-attested copies of the requisite documents.
After issuance of the possession letter, the allottee can reserve a date for physical possession through online mode only, it said, adding even the date of execution of conveyance deed will be reserved by the allottee through the online mode.
Since a number of concessions are being offered under the EWS category, the allottees in this category will not be permitted to sell or transfer, or otherwise part with the possession of the flat in any manner for a period of five years from the delivery of possession, it said.
The last DDA Housing Scheme was launched in March 2019, offering nearly 18,000 flats under four categories. These included 488 (HIG), 1,555 (MIG), 8,383 (LIG) and 7,496 (EWS). The Authority had received around 45,000 applications for the units.
