According to a senior DDA official, the autority is trying to launch the housing scheme flats by the end of February. However, he also revealed that no official date has been finalised for the launch.

As told to a leading website by the offical, the issue is being discussed with the Jal Board in Delhi and as soon as the water availability in those flats is ascertained, they will be ready to be on offer in the next housing scheme under the DDA.
Earlier, the DDA was set to launch a housing scheme in 2017 but due to various reasons, the plan was postponed. Meanwhile, the DDA has revealed that compared to the previous housing flats, the new flats will be more spacious and better designed.
