The Delhi Development Authority has launched a single-window portal for the registration of land pooling.

On this portal, the landowners can know the adjoining land areas of all sizes that fall under the planning zones K-1, L, N and P-II for registration. A person can get all updates including zone-wise maps, applicable charges, general guidelines and instructions.

Hardeep Singh Puri, the urban Housing and development minister launched this user-friendly portal and said that the private sector is going to play a pivotal role in the development of physical and social infrastructure. He was quoted saying that, under the new policy the Delhi development authority will play the role of a facilitator and a planner in contrast to the earlier large-scale land acquisition policy.

The Minister also said that the implementation of policy and land development will generate 17 lakh housing units that are estimated offer housing to 76 lakh people.

Tarun Kapoor, the DDA vice-chairman said that the authority is planning to set up helpdesks at multiple locations apart from the field office in Narela. All the areas including 109 sectors will be developed under five zones.

Under the policy, the floor area ratio of 200 FAR is planned for residential purpose and 15% and more is allowed for the construction of EWS/ affordable housing. For the economically-weaker section, the floor area ratio can touch upto the maximum permissible limit.

All the owners individuals as well as the co-owners need to register online and the payment has to be made online after which they will be provided with a unique registration ID.

Once the above steps are completed then an e-receipt will be issued. However, this receipt can’t be used to make publicity of any project and also for the collection of money from any individual.

The Delhi development authority will verify all the uploaded documents including khasra and other land details.

The authority will issue a notice to the landowners in order to form a consortium after which an implementation plan will be prepared. Thereafter a formal contractual agreement will be signed before applying to the Delhi development authority to acquire the land for development.

This process will take place only after pooling of atleast 70% adjoining land parcel and complete verification of revenue record.
