DDA finally approves land pooling policy (7 Sep, 2018)

Land Pooling Policy, which covers the greenfield areas in five zones viz., J, K-1, L, N and P-II coming under the Master Plan of Delhi-2021, has finally been approved by the DDA.

BJP MLA Vijender Gupta confirmed that DDA’s land pooling policy has finally been approved. It was cleared at the Authority’s board meeting chaired by the LG, Anil Baijal on Friday.

The policy will now go to the UD Ministry and is likely to be notified within two to three weeks.

A little background on Land Pooling:

The work on this ambitious policy, after being stuck for a long time because of various reasons, was resumed after the pending issue of the notification of the 89 villages under the DMC Act of 1957 and declaration of 95 villages as development area of the DDA under Section 12 of Delhi Development Act of 1957, were resolved in May 2017.

Later, in October 2017, Land pooling Policy was simplified for speedy execution. DDA’s role was limited to that of a facilitator and planner as against the role initially envisaged for it. These changes were accepted later, in December, in a meeting chaired by LG on 21st.

Originally, land pooled under the policy was to be transferred to DDA. It was then supposed to undertake further sectoral planning and development of infrastructure in the pooled land. At the December meeting, it had decided to do away with this requirement. It said that land title will continue to be with the original landowners. This was to help landowners with one-side stamp duty, their concern regarding transparency and for the speedy execution of the policy.

For the implementation of the land pooling policy, public notices were published in newspapers in January. Objections, suggestions and observations or views were invited within a period of 45 days from the general public.

In all, 734 objections, suggestions and observations or views were received. A public hearing was done on modifications to the Chapter-19 of Policy and to the regulations for operationalization of Policy. A 3-day public hearing session on the proposed modifications was concluded by the board of enquiry in July 2018.

This report prepared by the board of inquiry was discussed and approved at the authority’s board meeting that was chaired by lieutenant governor Anil Baijal on Friday.

LG gives nod to declaring Land Pooling villages as developed areas

Delhi’s LG Anil Baijal on 16th of May, 2017 (Friday) approved Land Pooling villages to be declared as developed areas. This will give a big push to Delhi’s planned development and affordable housing under DDA’s ambitious Land Pooling Policy (LPP).

The villages under Delhi’s Land Pooling policy are spread over nearly 77,000 acres, of which around 50 percent land will be made available to developer entities for real estate. The development of these 95 villages will result in over 25 lakh houses in the planned areas of the city. DDA will also be responsible for sewerage, water supply, electricity supply, bus terminals etc, and also return a portion of the plot to farmers.

To many, the news came through LG’s tweet, “Approved notification of 95 villages as development areas of DDA. Push for affordable housing, social and physical infrastructure needs of Delhi (sic).”

The villages to be developed under land pooling are from Delhi’s five zones, namely, Zone K1, L, N, P-II, and J.

Per DDA’s Land Pooling policy, individuals or a group of land owners owning land in villages in above mentioned five zones, marked for land pooling, can pool their land and hand it over to the Delhi Development Authority (DDA), which will develop basic public infrastructure like roads, before returning a substantial portion back to the owner.

The land owners offering between 5 to 50 acres of land for development will receive 48% (43%+3%+2%) of their land back, and those who would be pooling 50 acres or more of their land would get 60% (52%+5%+3%) of their pooled land back once the development is completed.

The leftover land will be used by DDA for purposes such as infrastructure development.

After initial setbacks/hurdles, the land pooling policy is set to change the character of the rural part of Delhi.
