NEW DELHI: Lieutenant governor Anil Baijal on Friday approved 95 villages to be declared as developed areas. Delhi Development Authority (DDA) can now start implementing the land pooling policy and it will be responsible for development of civic amenities in these villages.
“This is a major step in the implementation of the land pooling policy for creation of affordable housing units in the capital by harnessing private potential in land assembly and physical and social infrastructure development,” a statement issued by the LG office said.
According to sources, once the notification is issued, DDA can start the work on land pooling. DDA officials said it would take some time, close to 6-8 months, to to operationalise the policy.
“We will have to first prepare the standard operating procedure for the implementation of the policy. The land records have to be put in place,” said an official.
