The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) introduced the DDA housing scheme to dispose of newly built-up flats to the persons not having their own houses. The DDA housing scheme is linked to the credit-linked subsidy scheme under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana – Housing for All (Urban). 

The eligible persons can apply for the DDA housing scheme online, and the DDA will allot flats to them by issuing a demand-cum-allotment letter. The applicants to whom the flats are allotted, i.e. allottees, must pay the flat amount, submit the required documents and take possession of the flat. After taking possession of the flat, the DDA will execute a conveyance deed of the flat in the name of the allottee. 

The conveyance deed will be registered with the sub-registrar as per the law. The conveyance deed is the title paper of the flat and proof of ownership of the allottee over the allotted property. The process of application, payment and issuance of possession letters of the DDA housing scheme is done online through the AWAAS software.

DDA Housing Scheme, 2021

On 2 January 2021, the DDA announced the DDA housing scheme, 2021. The DDA received around 30,000 applications for the housing scheme. Out of the 1,354 DDA flats launched in the DDA housing scheme 2021, about 689 flats have been surrendered, the majority being from the MIG (Middle Income Group) category, followed by the EWS (Economically Weaker Section) category. 

Around 130 waitlisted applicants applied for the allotment of the surrendered DDA flats. The DDA conducted a draw on 25 August 2021 to allot the surrendered DDA flats to the waitlist applicants. Out of 130 waitlisted applicants, only 79 allottees came forward to pay the flat amount and take advantage of the allotment. 

The DDA will add the remaining 610 surrendered flats to the inventory of the new scheme that the DDA is planning to launch in December 2021. The DDA plans to launch the DDA housing scheme, 2022 to dispose of around 15,000 flats returned by allottees of the past DDA housing schemes. The eligible applicants can apply online to own flats under the upcoming DDA housing scheme 2022.
