Red face Question regarding DDA Housing scheme 2008

As some of the NCR members may be knowing, DDA has come up with its latest housing shceme 2008 recently.
I am also planning to apply for the same, although, its nothing short of a lottery. But i would like to try my luck neverthe less, as its a good investment oppurtunity. The flats are approx 50% less than the market price.

I want to finance the registration fees of 1.5 Lacs. Any ideas on where and how to go about the same? I heard Central bank is financing for the same, just we have to pay the extra interest of 6.5 k ?

Any inputs, comments welcome.

You can bet this one is going to be a huge lottery. Trucks full of people sitting here in Hyderabad and Bangalore are applying for it. They are even egging me on to do the same. It will be one biiig rush!

Finance. Ummm... don't know. Is it a personal loan? I do not think application money can be financed as home loan. But then again, I am not entirely sure.

So which place are you planning to apply for?

From the looks of it, DDA has got a lot of accumulated leftover flats in their various schemes all across Delhi on a ikka-dukka basis which they are putting together in one place and putting up for sale.

A few all new schemes are also clubbed into these. One such option looks to be in Rohini. But then the funny part is no one is really sure of the Sector 28. We even tried to locate it through Google satellite pics. However no markings for Sector 28 could be found there either. Ultimately we decided it must be somewhere even further than the currently known Rohini, in the boondocks, which DDA is now developing and numbering as Sector 28.

Yes, but then why would an investor worry about that? Rohini/Narela is still Delhi, and market prices will be atleast 40% more.

Problem is that these house are lying vacant and in shambles sometimes for years. They are now all of a sudden being clubbed together and put on sale. The valuation later may be a bit of a problem unless you check it yourself before you book.

Take Rohini flats on sale, for example. In Feb 2004 (yes, that long back) DDA started building it with the idea to provide low cost housing to the EWS of the society as per their own proclamation. It was also known that there were already lot many flats in Rohini lying vacant as the allottees were not interested in occupying these because of DDA policies (like no water connection unless the locality has a citizen mass beyond a threshold). They promised that they will take care of these while building up the sector 28 project and handing them over in 2005 begining.

Obviously something went wrong and people did not show enough interest or whatever... But now these are coming up in the market for sale. Also, I wonder what changes they would have made in such a delayed project now to have made those flats which they originally targetted at the EWS (at that time they said most properties will be sold for less than 1 lakhs!) to cost so much more. Its all looking very dicey to me.

Yes, the few at places like Vasant Kunj and all, marked as either HIG or MIG, will most probably be ok. But others like the ones in Rohini where it does not even mention whether these are LIG, MIG or HIG are really dicey propositions IMO. As the law says, Caveat Emptor.

When I moved to Noida, my cousin suggested to take up a DDA flat on rent in south delhi instead of staying in Noida, as he is old school and believes its better to stay in Delhi.
Looked at 2-3 flats for 11-12K Per month rent.
After that I had decided, that we will move back to Bangalore.
Luckily we found good cheap acco in Noida in good areas.

That said I have not seen flats that horrendous ever.

Default Check your application status

Guys if any one of you applied for this scheme kindly check status of your application @ Delhi Development Authority to see whether DDA actually received your application for lucky draw or not.
