DDA Housing Scheme 2024

DDA Housing Scheme is titled “Special Housing Scheme 2024” of the Delhi Development for the flat’s disposals. The main motto behind launching this scheme is to provide flats to the general public at affordable prices.

The Delhi Development Authority’s (DDA) housing scheme encourages a large number of people to buy flats each year because of their affordability. On the other hand, many choose to surrender the units that they win in the lucky draw for numerous reasons. The scheme offers 18,000 flats to people who want to buy them.      

For instance, in 2021, the authority was obligated to go for a fresh draw of lots of over 600 flats on August 5, 2022, to reallocate DDA flats that allottees surrendered. The prime reasons for the surrender of flats cited by the allottees are safety issues, not getting the preferred floor, last-mile connectivity, accessibility from the main city, civic facilities and transportation. 

About half the flats launched by the DDA under the DDA Housing Scheme 2021 were surrendered by the allottees. The surrendered units were located mostly in Rohini, Vasant Kunj, Jasola, Dwarka and Manglapuri.

DDA Housing Allotment / Draw Method

The allotment of flats is completely based on a computerised draw. This, in turn, depends on the “Number Indicated Technique.” Typically, the DDA Housing Scheme 2021 draw three stages as described below:

Randomisation of Flats and Applicants

Each applicant and flats receive a random number. Those random numbers are then printed and called Cross Reference of Flats and Cross Reference of Applicants respectively. There are judges who shuffle and check those allotted random numbers and then put their initials on them to ensure that it has been randomised. 

Drawing the Lucky Numbers

There are boxes that contain coins numbered 0 to 9. One box for each digit is put before the judges. The number of boxes is solely dependent on the number of digits and the total number of flats and applicants. 

The starting number for flats is named the Lucky Number of Flats, while the starting number for applicants is known as the Lucky Number of Applicants. The judges draw one coin from each box. The number that is created by the coins drawn from the boxes for applicants and boxes for flats are considered lucky numbers. 

Mapping of Applicants and Flats

Once the coins are drawn, the lucky numbers for the applicants and flats are listed on paper. Those papers are signed by the judges. These papers are then fed into the computer, which then evaluates the flats and applicants. After mapping, the judges make the allotment.

If there are some physically handicapped applicants, they will get the allotment first as the ground floor is reserved for them.
