DDA to soon implement new Lift Installation Policy in Delhi

Much in tune with the new Masterplan 2021 guidelines, the DDA is planning to implement the revised policy for issuing no-objection certificates required for the installation of lifts in the national capital. The new lift policy though not made public yet is going to be finalized soon, and has been brought by the new vice-chairperson Balvinder Kumar.

DDA had started working on the new lift policy almost three years ago but it could not be revised due to several objections by residents. While the new lift policy has not been finalized, several thousand applications for installation of lifts has been kept in abeyance. Ramesh Menon, Director, Certes Realty Ltd welcomed the decision of DDA to expedite the policy, and decision making on lifts as it could accelerate the pace of construction, and completion in newly developed colonies, apartment complexes, and even houses which want to instal these systems. With new farmhouses in Delhi also being allowed increased height, Menon said it was important that such a policy be implemented at the earliest.

As per the revised policy, the consent of the ground floor residents would be required for setting up, and operating the lift, and consent of all occupants and owners is needed to be submitted. The applicants will also have to get recommendations from the lift manufacturers, civil and structural agencies, four sets of building plans, and NOCs from fire department, and GNTCD, lift inspector, and the DISCOM of the area. A NoC from the RWA of the colony is also required. If the area comes under any of the municipal bodies, than the owners will have to approach the municipal officials for NoCs.

Thank God that the consent of the ground floor is required for the NOC otherwise earlier policy of Gorund floor peoples consent not required was not only bad in policy but also bad in law. How could people who are most affected not be taken into consideration???

The lift brouhaha in our apartments has created a rift so wide among the residents that it is impossible to bridge the gap between the ground and the people living on the upper floors.All tactics of intimdation, ridicule and physical abuse and might is right have been used by the interested parties in the lift to try and force the ground floor people to give in and agree to flouting of rules. Thank God for the court, we are relieved. No one was and is against the lift per se but no one (ground or top floors) have the right to facilitate themselves by climbing and breaking other people’s back.Most of the top floor people have made construction on their terraces and now want to take away the free space left for movement of goods and people. fire safety…no one cares till something damaging and devastating happens in this country.

Thanks author for the update. However, i am one of the aggrieved parties whose application has been pending for more than a year in DDA office. Request if you could help us know the contact person in DDA and whether there is an interim solution for already pending cases.
