New Delhi: Booking DDA community halls in Delhi is set to get easier as the urban body has decreased the time for making payment for online booking from 45 minutes to 15 minutes.
"For making the procedure faster and easier, the time for making payment has been decreased to 15 minutes," DDA said in a statement on Wednesday.
Applicants earlier had to fill in their details and upload scanned copies of required documents and were required to make the payment within 45 minutes through the payment gateway.
Also, bookings were to be confirmed/approved online by the Superintending Engineer concerned of the zone but no time limit was fixed, it said.
"Now for public convenience and to bring in transparency and efficiency, it has been decided that the Superintending Engineer concerned of the zone will approve the booking within three working days, failing which it shall be deemed to have been approved with the full personal liability of the Superintending Engineer concerned," DDA said.
DDA had in 2012 started an online booking facility for 383 open spaces and 44 community halls for organising religious, spiritual and commercial functions as well as for circus and marriage activities.
