Land pooling policy for Delhi approved by Center
The land pooling policy which will allow Delhi to have 17 lakh housing units has been approved. This will house approximately 74 lakh people.
In a statement given to the reporters when asked about the reporter, when asked about the land pooling policy, Puri said, “Yes, I have signed it.” Along with this, a confirmation from a senior ministry official also confirmed the approval of the policy.
Under the leadership of Lt Governor Anil Baijal, the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) approved of the policy last month. The policy states that agencies will build roads, hospitals, schools, community centers and more on part of the pooled land, and return a portion to the farmers, which they can later use to construct property with the help of private builders.
Last year in December, the highest decision-making body of DDA had approved simplification of the land pooling policy in NCR and the role of the Authority being that of a ‘facilitator, regulator and planner only‘. This made the overall process simpler by eliminating the transfer of land to DDA, which would act as the developer, and take care of further planning sectors and infrastructure development.
Land owners with any size of land can participate in the land pooling policy. The basic requirement however, is two hectares. A developer entity can partake in the scheme by pooling land parcels covered under a sector, as per the zonal development plan, the DDA said in September.
