NEW DELHI: Union minister Hardeep Singh Puri announced on Tuesday steps Delhi unauthorized colonies

that will make it easier for people living in unapproved colonies in

Delhi to take advantage of the PM-UDAY scheme. Applicants will no longer need to have a “will,”

and ownership rights will be given on the full plot area for private land.

The ministry says that many people who apply for the Pradhan Mantri –

dates for those elections are likely to be announced later this week.

At a press conference, Union Housing and Urban Affairs Minister Puri and DDA

Vice Chairman Manish Gupta said that the proposed change to not treat a valid will as a mandatory document

He said that the development control norms for unauthorized colonies were made to improve the quality of the built environment. He also said that it would continue to provide affordable rental housing Delhi unauthorized colonies

and improve the physical and economic conditions in unauthorized colonies.

Two different ways to upgrade and improve unapproved colonies are also part of the new steps (UC).

In a statement, the ministry said, “Smaller plots can be combined or

reconstituted for a better living environment and large open spaces up to a minimum size of 2000 sqm.”

It also said that existing colonies will be made official based on how they are now and where they are.

“It would allow for planned growth by putting in at least 6-meter-wide roads, public facilities,

better connections, more open spaces, and better infrastructure services. Parts of colonies can also be regularized if they cover at least 2,000 sqm “what was being said.

Puri said that the “Jahan Jhuggi Wahan Makan” scheme for in-situ slum rehabilitation

will help more than 50 lakh people who live in informal settlements in Delhi by giving them nice homes.

There are already 8,000 homes being built as part of three projects in Kalkaji, Jailorwala Bagh, and Kathputli colony.

The vice chairman of the DDA says that 1,675 EWS houses in Jailorwala Bagh and Ashok Vihar

will likely be finished by May 31 and given to eligible JJ residents of Jailorwala Bagh.

By December 31, as many as 2,800 EWS flats in Kathputli Colony and Shadipur could be finished.

Since it started a little more than two years ago, the Pradhan Mantri –

Unauthorized Colony in Delhi Awas Adhikar Yojna (PM-UDAY) has given ownership rights to

about 12,500 people living in the city’s 1,731 unapproved colonies.

The process of registering properties started on December 16, 2019, and on

January 3, 2020, 20 people in two unapproved colonies in north Delhi, Raja Vihar and Suraj Park,

were the first to get conveyance deeds and registration papers for their homes.

The Delhi Development Authority (DDA),

which is in charge of carrying out the scheme, received 96,745 applications

from people living in unapproved colonies by February 18, 2022. Of those, 23,271 were not eligible and were turned away. In total, conveyance deeds (properties on private land) or authorization slips were given to 12,480 people (properties on public land).

Even though there are only 67 applications waiting to be executed, there are 54,489

applications still being worked on by the applicants. Dda pm uday Of these, 43,114 were waiting for answers on deficiencies, 10,674

were sent back because they didn’t have enough information, and 701 still had to pay fees.

Even though nearly 4.5 million people have signed up for PM-UDAY so far and

around 40 million people are expected to benefit from the programme,

only a small number of residents have received ownership rights.

Officials say there are many reasons for this

Why homeowners in Delhi haven’t been excited about the legal tag

When the programme first started, the response was good,

but when Covid-19 broke out a few months later, a lot of people stopped signing up. By the first half of May 2020, 70,000 properties had been mapped with GIS. During the lockdown, DDA’s four processing centers in Dwarka, Pitampura, Hauz Khas, and Laxmi Nagar were still open. Even though these places were locked down, people were still working there.

Because the pandemic is still going on, it has been hard to physically survey properties. Sources say that the work has been done with

care for the safety of both the people living there and the surveyors.

An official said that because the programme didn’t have a deadline, the people

who benefited from it didn’t feel like they had to act quickly. Also, many people who lived there thought that getting a conveyance

deed or an authorization slip wouldn’t change much on the ground.

“In the last two years, there have been a lot of awareness camps and meetings with RWAs in unapproved colonies. “We are doing everything we can to help people get ownership rights,” a government worker said.
