There was a lingering issue with the land belonging to gram sabha in the 95 villages to be notified, which was hampering the progress of DDA’s Land pooling policy. It has finally been transferred to Delhi Govt. and will now enable the state govt to undertake infrastructure projects after the remaining land is pooled in under LPP.
The notification for the same was issued on 29th Oct. Now, though it may seem that this should end all the speculations on the LPP and it should become a reality soon, but we will still be skeptical about the overall outcome. As per sources, Delhi Govt wants to move cautiously and may take more time before giving it its final nod. They want to consult different group of stakeholders to ensure that everybody’s concerns have been taken care of, specially, that of farmers, before they give their approval.
Just to reiterate, once the policy gets into implementation stage, it will pave way for development of 20-25 lakh homes in the capital in a planned manner and will open door of opportunities for all the sections alike.
