As many as 12,000 houses are on offer in the latest edition of the DDA Housing Scheme 2017 launched in the Capital today. DDA has incentivised this year’s offer by removing the five year lock-in period for resale besides retaining the prices at the 2014 levels. Eligible allottees can avail interest subsidy of Rs 1.40  lakh to Rs.2.67 lakh under the Credit Linked Subsidy component of  Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Urban).

Minister of Urban Development M Venkaiah Naidu today launched DDA’s offer of 12,072 houses under DDA Awasiya Yojana-2017 of which over 99 percent houses are meant for the middle income group, lower income group and janta categories.

The minister also said that DDA would be offering a total of one lakh houses, as many as 20,000 per year till 2022 to further the mission of Housing for All. He also said that the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, 2016 (RERA) that came into effect on May 1 and introduction of GST from tomorrow would bring the much desired correction in real estate sector.
