1. Background of society:

Central Secretariat Services Officers Society (CSSOS) is a symbol of service, unity and epitome of solidarity. This long association of the CSS fraternity has now taken a formal and legal shape when the officers decided not only to live together in proximity and take forward the CSS legacy but also to provide high-quality dwellings with competitive prices to others. This culmination has resulted in the formation of a housing society christened as CSSOS.

      Our society is registered under the Societies Registration Act XXI, 1860.

Unlike business persons, private sector professionals, the Government officers have to live on their limited means. Purchasing a house in good locality of Delhi was becoming more of a distant dream. The opportunity has now come by way of DDA’s Land Pooling Policy (LPP) and Government’s announcement to develop Delhi into a “Global City”, with setting up of 3 “Smart Cities” to de-congest the National Capital Region and facilitate it with all modern amenities.“Smart Cities” will be established in the proximity of Dwarka. Ministry of Urban Development has already approved the Master Plan of 2021 and land pooling policy of DDA.

These led to coming together of many like-minded Govt. officers and form a society with a view to putting in place a Housing project for all to be mutually beneficial.

 2. Vision of the society:

The Vision of CSSOS is to provide high-quality affordable dwelling units with green technology for living in a secure and clean environment. Since the Society has been formed by Group of officers of the Central Government Ministries with the majority of members from CSS including IASs/ IPSs/ IRss, the society envisions a close cohesive ambiance with a view to foster brotherhood and fraternity among all the members. Central Secretariat Services Officers Society (CSSOS) is a society of CSS officers for CSS Officers of Central Govt. along with officers from State Govt., PSU, Banks, Financial, Academic Institutions and selected professionals, with an aim to provide not only an (i) affordable housing but also an elite neighborhood ; (ii) Officers’ Clubs all over India; and (iii) Quality education through its Schools, specifically for the officers/ families/ relatives of Central/ State Government officers/ officials, Public Sector and Bank employees.

 3. Our mission to achieve the vision is through:

        • Consensual approach to develop housing projects to the extent possible.
        • Green and safe environment for healthy living.
        • Dwelling units of highest quality with competitive prices.
        • Not just an elite address but elite neighbor-hood also.
        • World Class Clubbing and dining experience through our City Clubs.
        • World Class Schools with international academic and sports activities.

 4. Aim of the project:

The Society aims to facilitate acquisition of agricultural land in this area, which will then undertake construction of a Group Housing project once the gross residential land is returned by DDA after development in lieu of the agricultural land pooled as per the Government Notification SO 2687 of 05 Sept 2013 and all the requisite approvals from the Governmental authorities have been obtained. The land is to be allotted within the “L- Zone” (within a radius of around 0-5 kilometer from Dwarka) for the Society’s Housing Project. The government is likely to come up with detailed regulations by early 2016, based on which the approval for commencing construction will be undertaken. Therefore, the financial outflow will be staggered over the period and in the meantime, the value of the land would also appreciate as time passes by, hence the most beneficial groups would be the early subscribers to the scheme.

Our society aims to procure land for the Project at better locations, closer to Dwarka and IGI Airport. The land prices are going up rapidly following Government’s announcement of the “Smart City”. Therefore, the present land cost is expected to increase substantially in the coming months compared to the cost currently being charged by the Society / Developer.

The society, therefore, aims to arrange resources and register the land in its name from the Developer at the earliest, to reduce the Project cost, in view of the rush by various competing developers and Societies to procure land in that area.
