What is the Affordable Housing Scheme in India
DDA’s land submission call according to Land Pooling Policy Notification by Ministry of Housing & Urban Affairs on 11th Oct 2018 & DDA Notification dated 24th Oct 2018 on regulations for ope-rationalization of Land Pooling Policy.
Purchasing a house in Delhi had become a distant dream owing to the high land cost and unavailability of land with DDA for allotment to Group Housing Societies as had been done earlier in Patparganj, Rohini, and Dwarka around the 1980s. The opportunity has now come by way of DDAs Land Pooling Policy (LPP) under Delhi Master Plan, 2021 to decongest the National Capital Region and facilitate it with all modern amenities on the concept of “SMART CITIES”.
As per the policy, Delhi has been divided into 15 zones and all the left out the land of around 22,000 hectares in Delhi has to be converted into the residential zone, most prominent of which is the L-zone comprising around 10,000 hectares of land (25,000 acres) given it’s being adjacent to Dwarka, Gurgaon, and IGI Airport, where DDA has already constructed Urban Extension Road (UER-ii) and planned Diplomatic Enclave, AIIMS, International Golf Club, etc. Hundreds of developers, builders, and societies have already acquired the land in the area as the land rates are expected to be doubled within a year, the moment DDA starts developing the sectors. If we go by the history of Dwarka since its development, every 7 to 10 years, the price of the flats has been doubled and presently the rates are roughly Rs. 10,000 per sq. ft for a normal flat. Going by the same analyses, the projected price of the flats in this area would be around Rs. 16,000 per sq. ft, by the time this project is complete. So an investment of roughly Rs. 5,000 per sq.ft. In 5 years is expected to be 3 times.
Encouraged by this welcoming development, the Group an officer of the Central Government Ministries formed the Central Secretariat Services Officers Society (CSSOS) under Societies Registration Act XXI, 1860 ( Regn. No. S-E/784). The society comprises of the officers from various Ministries/ Departments including Home, Finance, Civil Aviation, Delhi Metro, and Urban Development, who are responsible for drafting the LPP and its execution through DDA. The society has already entered into agreements for land aggregation and procurement in L-zone and launched their project “CSSOS OFFICERS ENCLAVE” to provide high-quality dwellings with competitive prices only for its members and the membership is open for Central/ State govt., Public Sector Undertaking, and Bank Employees as well as 20% of select professionals. This project will be unique in terms of its amenities/ facilities, which can boast of not just an elite address but an elite neighborhood also.
CSSOS Service :-
Central Secretariat Services Officers Society (CSSOS) is a symbol of service, unity, and the 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, Government officers have to live on their limited means. Purchasing a house in a 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 decongest 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 the land pooling policy of DDA.
These led to the coming together of many like-minded Govt. officers and form a society to put in place a Housing project for all to be mutually beneficial.
