With a special focus on affordable houses, Delhi Development Authority has passed its DDA Budget 2013-14. Preservation of green areas is another main focus included in the DDA budget.
DDA Budget 2013-14 has been recently passed by the Development Authority of Delhi. Affordable houses and the preservation of green areas are two major focuses of the DDA Budget 2013-14.
While passing the budget for the year 2013-14, DDA focused on affordable houses and green areas. In fact the recently launched budget includes special provision for green areas and affordable housing segment.
The Development Authority has plans to develop affordable houses in the outskirts of the city. These houses will be more affordable to the people even to the low income group. Besides affordable housing units, the DDA Budget 2013-14 proposes special development of infrastructure in these areas as well.
Tejinder Khanna, DDA chairman, said that the Development Authority will prepare a list of the projects including its date of completion. He added that it will help the civic body to maintain the timeline of the project.
Once the list is prepared, DDA will be able to inspect the development procedure of every project. It will monitor the projects and its delay on the basis of its given timeline. Another important step will be acceleration of those projects which are moving slowly.
The DDA has noticed that many of the areas like Alaknanda, Dwarka, Jasola, Kirti Nagar, Paschim Vihar, Rohini, etc. have many slow-moving projects. All these projects will be sped up by the DDA with a view to provide more affordable homes to the poor and the lower income group.
In short the main focus included in the DDA Budget 2013-14, is provision of sufficient number of affordable homes. Yet this is not the sole object of the budget. It aims to have development of infrastructure and preservation of green areas in the city.
