PM launches Deen Dayal Jan Awas Yojana in Gurgaon

GURGAON: Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the ‘Deen Dayal Jan Awas Yojana’ with an aim to put a check on the development of unauthorized colonies and simultaneously achieve the target of ‘Housing for All-2022’ at reasonable rates in small and medium potential towns.

“The scheme also aims at providing small plots to accommodate maximum number of people in limited area in medium and low-potential towns of the state,” said the prime minister.

These colonies are proposed to be developed over 5 to 15 acres of land and the salable area is permissible to the extent of 65 per cent of the licence area.

To encourage the development of such colonies by private colonizers, the rates of licence fee and external development charges have been substantially reduced, while the conversion charges and infrastructure development charges have been waived off.

Ventures proposed to be created under this arrangement will have most extreme plot size of 150 square meters with floor zone proportion (FAR) of 2.0. So as to deal with the prerequisite of open space in the settlement, the colonizer will need to give least 7.5 percent of zone under sorted out open space.

In order to protect the interest of the allottees, provision has been made in the policy for freezing 50 per cent area of the residential plots with the government, on which development works can be undertaken by the colonizer. But, the allotments on this frozen part of the colony will be allowed only after completion of internal development works of the colony.
