New Delhi: The largest-ever housing scheme of Delhi Development Authority will be rolled out for city-dwellers by July end, offering over 26,000 flats across various categories with most of them being built with "green technology", a top official of the housing body today said.

"We have 24,000 one-room apartments and another 2000- 2,500 flats lined up in the DDA, 2014, housing scheme. The houses will be spread across Rohini, Narela and Dwarka and will be priced from Rs. 14-15 lakh to Rs. 1 crore. And, we should be able to launch the largest-ever scheme by July-end," DDA vice-chairman Balvinder Kumar told PTI.

The much-awaited scheme comes four years after the DDA offered over 16,000 flats in its 2010 scheme.

"While 24,000 flats will be low-cost, the remaining 2000- 2,500 flats will be available across LIG, MIG and HIG categories. We will soon hold a meeting to discuss whether the one-room flats would be made available to all or only to the economically weaker sections,"  Kumar said.

Talking about the features of the flats, he said, "Most of the houses are pre-fabricated and have green features, used for the first time in DDA houses.

"They are being built in accordance with the Master Plan Delhi, 2021."

A senior official said the houses will be located in Rohini, Narela and Dwarka and range from four-storeyed and above.

According to  Kumar, "By July, 15,000 flats should be ready, another major chunk by December end and, finally, about 1,000 will be completed by March next year."

Once the work is over, the flats would be made available to the applicants through draw of lots, he said.
