DDA Housing Scheme draw 2017: Successful allottees who surrendered their flats still waiting for refund
The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) launched its housing scheme 2017 on June 30 for allotting more than 12,000 flats across Delhi in the price range of Rs 7.07 lakh and Rs 1.26 crore.

But majority of the flats (around 10,000 unoccupied ones) were those not bought up by the allottees of the draw held in the 2014 scheme. After the draw held for the 2017 scheme, within 45 days, about 6,000 allottees surrendered their houses because of poor design and improper interior space.

It is ironical that even after more than 3 months of surrendering the flats, the applicants have not been given their refunds. The customer care center is not responding to the applicants properly, and there is no one to answer their queries regarding refunds. Even the mails to Deputy Chairman DDA are not resulting in any response or refund. The DDA is silent on the issue.

The applicants are eagerly waiting for their hard-earned registration money to be refunded as soon as possible, as it has almost been 9 months since the application were invited for the housing scheme 2017, and about three-and-a-half months since the applicants surrendered their flats.

Also, the registration amount, if it had been lying in the bank or invested somewhere would have resulted in some returns. The DDA has no right to sit on the registration money anymore for so long taking financial gains from the deposits; hence, refund of the registration money to the applicants should be top priority. The DDA should answer the applicants' calls and messages considering it is one of the most prestigious development authorities in the country, and that of the national capital territory.
