New Delhi: BJP on Tuesday alleged that several
middlemen and real estate agents were trying to take people
for a ride and making illegal money by promising to get them
flats in the recently announced DDA Housing scheme and asked
the government to take action.
"Many representations are coming that middlemen and
real estate agents are asking for hefty sums of money (from
people promising them flats).... It is a matter of concern,"
BJP spokesperson Rajiv Pratap Rudy said.
He said Delhi Development Authority housing schemes
announced in the past also have been mired in controversies
"More than Rs 500 Crore have been collected by these
agents (in the present scheme)... A large number of middlemen
are intevening to make back-hand deals," Rudy said.
BJP demanded a "full transparent lottery system in
full public eye" on the scheme.
"People invest their life-long savings in such
schemes," Rudy said.
DDA had recently announced a housing scheme in which
more than 15,000 flats are available. More than 14 Lakh forms
were sold. The draw is likely to take place by April 30, 2011.
