New Delhi, Aug 5 (IANS) The Delhi government Tuesday began the sale of application forms for allotment of 10,000 low-cost houses aimed at making a slum-free national capital. Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit Tuesday opened a sale counter at Regarpura at Karol Bagh for the Rajiv Ratan Awas Yojana.
“10,000 well-designed flats are ready in Bawana and Baprola for allotment. The flats have been provided all basic amenities including water, electricity, dispensary, playground, shopping Centre for daily needs and public transport,” Dikshit said.
The flats are meant for the residents of slum clusters and urban poor. Residents of those slum clusters would be allotted flats on priority, who have been dislocated to make room for construction of projects related to Commonwealth Games.
“Applicant must be a resident of Delhi for at least 10 years and the annual income should not exceed Rs.16,000,” Dikshit stated.
The filled application forms would be received at same 54 centres between Aug 18 to Sept 5.
Two-room and one-room dwelling units would respectively cost Rs.200,000 and Rs.175,000 approximately, for which the union government would provide around Rs.60,000 under Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM).
Rest of the amount would be arranged as soft loan on easy instalment from banks, which would be repayable in 15 to 20 years.
