Latest DDA News- 77 Operations to go Online
Digital India is indispensable for the development of India. The macro-effects are too long to be listed, but one of the prominent micro-effect includes the conservation of time and money. The public also doesn’t have to wait in frustrating queues. The movement has gained popularity since de-monetization was introduced. However, not many instances have come into the light, following its inception. But now, the idea of Digital India is finally catching up with reality. Strategizing wisely, Delhi Development Authority (DDA) is set to digitize 77 different DDA activities. This latest DDA news features digitization of DDA’s operations to speed up land disposal, acquisition and management among many other processes.
The decision was reflected in a review meeting between Delhi Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal and DDA. Anil Baijal, who has served as the DDA vice chancellor, approved of the ‘DDA going digital’ blueprint. He recommended the authority to initiate all the services online as soon as possible. DDA will also assemble a structured data of land encroachments in Delhi with a point-of-action for their removal.
The real estate sector seems to be in a good position, following this announcement. Union Budget 2017-18 has already made it easy for them to pursue new projects with fast-track approvals, thanks to affordable housing’s infrastructure status. With DDA digitized, real estate projects can be hastened even more. Realty will also benefit from the GST implication that’ll bring down the developer’s expenses, resulting in the reduction of property prices.
Last month, DDA also streamlined the process of getting building plans authorized. Again, a meeting fronted by governor Anil Baijal decided that a single form can be used to get multiple approvals from various agencies like Delhi Jal Board, fire department and municipal corporations. This process will be carried out online with a set timeline. Digital India is finally making everything fall in place.
