DDA is launching a housing scheme on June 30 with 13,000 flats in Delhi. Most of these are flats surrendered by allottees after the previous schemes because they lacked basic amenities.

After much delay, the Delhi Development Authority launched its housing scheme on Friday. There are 13,000 flats on offer which will be allotted through a draw of lots.

Registration forms will be available at different banks and online. Interested buyers can submit their application to DDA by August 9. However, DDA is introducing strict rules for refund of registration fee in case of withdrawal from the scheme. The authority says it will deter people from applying if they are not serious about buying a flat.
