DDA land Pooling policy

DDA says Over 6,500 ha of Land Registered For Land Pooling Through Online Portal

Over 6,200 applications for nearly 6,575 ha of land have been received by the DDA through its registration portal for its land pooling policy, officials said on Saturday. In a statement, the DDA also said that as on date, 1,371 applications have been verified by the Delhi Government

The land pooling policy is based on public-private partnership towards pro-actively increasing economic opportunities and housing supply in a time-bound manner, and harnessing private potential through pooling of land parcels.

Under the policy, agencies will develop infrastructure like roads, schools, hospitals, community centres and stadia on the pooled land and return a portion of the plot to farmers who can later execute housing projects with the help of private builders.

The DDA had launched the online portal in February last year to ease application and verification processes for stakeholders of the land pooling policy.

“On closing of the third window on the web portal on April 24, a total of 6,219 applications have been registered through which approximately 6,575 ha of land has been pooled,” the DDA statement said.

The land pooling policy was notified by the DDA in September 2018.

The development is envisaged for about 20,000 ha of land to meet the future requirements of the capital city, and 20 lakh new houses shall be constructed, of which six lakh houses will be reserved for EWS housing accommodating a total of 80-100 lakh people over the next 20 years, the DDA said.

It covers urbanizable areas of urban extensions at 95 villages in the national capital, falling in J, K-I, L, N and P-II zones, the officials said.

The land pooled in P-II, N, L, K-I and J zones are 1283.6 ha, 3313 ha, 1742.6 ha, 231.7 ha and 3.6 ha, respectively, the statement said.

Entire area is divided into 109 sectors and on an average, each sector is about 250-350 ha and is anticipated to accommodate about 80,000 to 1 lakh population, it said.

For qualifying a sector for development, a minimum of 70 per cent contiguous land in a sector is required to be pooled and of the pooled land, the developer entity or consortium will retain 60 per cent for development of residential, commercial, public and semi-public facilities. The remaining 40 per cent will be utilised by DDA or service providing agencies (SPA) for development of city-level physical infrastructure, recreational, industrial and public or semi-public facilities.

A few sectors in N, P-II and L are likely to qualify for development under this policy, it said.

For inclusive planning and development, the policy allows residential FAR (floor-area ratio) of 200 and 15 per cent additional FAR for development of EWS housing, it added.

Based on an in-house exercise of mapping of pooled land on GIS platform, the applications registered on the DDA web portal are being scrutinised by the urban body, the statement said.

The ownership of the land details submitted by the applicants under the portal is to be verified by the revenue department, Government of Delhi and as on date, 1,371 applications have been verified, the statement said.

Get Income Tax Rebate on Housing Loan

Homebuyers to Get Income Tax Rebate on Housing Loan; BIG GIFT! Massive boost for Real Estate Sector Coming

For homebuyers, Real Estate sector, and housing finance companies, there is some great news in offing, says this exclusive Zee Business TV report, citing Finance Ministry sources. In a big boost for the real estate sector, it has been revealed , that it may get infrastructure sector status! And that too as a pre-budget gift! Sources revealed that the issue is under discussion. When will this happen? As early as the new year itself! This will come as a big boost for the whole economy.

According to the Zee Business report, the development will have a multi-player impact, and the registered tax payers if willing to buy their dream house will be able to avail income tax benefits under this development. In short, if you are willing to purchase a home, you will get tax rebate provided you are a registered taxpayer and this benefit will be on your tax outgo of up to Rs 50,000, said the report.

Anil Singhvi, Managing Editor of Zee Business, said “If you are paying up to Rs 5 lakh interest in a year then you can save about Rs 50,000 or 10% on your tax outgo.” He added that homebuyers should know that “this is tax rebate not tax deduction.”

This will be applicable from next financial years i.e, April 1, 2020 to March 31 2021, and the new home buyers will get this tax rebate for the first three years of their loan period. Notably, the government has so far given tax rebate on affordable housing through interest subvention scheme, but now this will benefit the real estate’s premium projects too.

Since it will be applicable on buying new houses from the next financial year, the whole real estate sector is likely to get the boost, as in the last 4-5 years prices have not increased.The report said this will also benefit real estate developers, as Rs 1.8 Lakh crore loans are stuck which will get clearance and lead to fresh buying in next Financial Year.
