New Delhi: People whose settlements or shops are likely to get affected due to construction of DDA's urban extension roads in northwest and south Delhi will now be eligible for a flat at a subsidised rate.

The urban extension roads beyond the outer Ring Road in northwest Delhi and south Delhi are being constructed to further decongest roads in the national capital.

At the Authority Meeting presided by Lt Governor Tejinder Khanna on Tuesday, the proposal to make the people, whose shop, residence or industrial unit get affected, eligible for a DDA flat was approved.

The rehabilitation and relocation policy was formed after the DDA studied similar policies being adopted by Delhi Metro and other organisations.

According to the policy, if a residential plot size of 40 square metres gets affected, the owner of the house will be eligible for an EWS flat.

"For residential plot size more than 40 square metres and less than 100 square metres, they would get a LIG category flat and for plot size of above 100 square metres, MIG category flat is the eligibility," an official DDA release said.

For shopkeepers, an alternative shop will be allotted at predetermined prices depending on availability.

"The cost of these flats allotted will be subsidised at an average level of 10 per cent of cost irrespective of location," the release said.

The meeting also approved deletion of the clause that says that only 25 per cent of the area allotted to a Foreign Mission can be used for residential purposes under the Master Plan of Delhi 2021.

The change was carried out after Foreign Missions sought removal of restriction on the use of premises of the land allotted.

The Authority also approved the modification in land use of isolated pocket 11 and 12 in Dwarka Zone K-II from transportation (railway station) to residential.

The total area of the site is around 2.26 hectares. The area is with MCD and the services are inadequate to take the load of the additional population density.

Therefore, it had been proposed after due examination by the Planning and Engineering Wing to process change of land use under Section 11A of DDA Act from transportation to public and semi-public facilities.

"This was approved by the Authority and will be sent to the Ministry for further approval," the release said.

The meeting also effected a modification in K1 Zonal Development Plan related to development of industrial Park at Baprola by DSIDC.

A proposal for delegation of enhanced powers to Engineering Wing on the lines of CPWD was also passed by it.

The meeting was also informed that swimming pools with hot water facility at Siri Fort, CWG Village and Yamuna Sports Complex would be opened by January, 2012.

The issue of allotting land for marriage purposes was also discussed and Authority was of the view that in order to check the irregularities in allotment and to check continued possession of land by tent mafia, the policy which is being contemplated by DDA should be further modified by placing restriction on the number of days for which the land will be allotted.

"There should be some limit on the total land allotted for one marriage and thirdly a process of providing land on licence fee basis should be examined," the release said, adding that the Lt Governor sought a detailed proposal in this regard at the next meeting.
