Delhi Land Pooling Policy: Stuck in Political Slugfest


Highlights
  1. Land Pooling Policy was announced in 2015 to solve Delhi's Infra & Housing shortage
  2. Under land pooling 62,000 acres were to be pooled developed, 48-60% of developed land was to be returned to owners

Delhi is bursting at its seams. In the last few decades, Delhi’s population has gone up from 60 lakh to 1.7 crores.  By the end of 2021, this population is expected to rise up to 2.5 crores. The big challenge Delhi faces is to accommodate 80 lakh more people with the right kind of housing, supported by adequate social and physical infrastructure. 

The land pooling policy announced in 2015 after it was approved by the Union Urban Development Ministry, was supposed to take care of most of these. But for the last two years, it has just remained a policy on paper. 

The Delhi government has not yet notified 89 villages as urban areas and 95 villages as urban development areas. 

"Why is the government sitting on the file? It's time Delhi government makes its stand clear. I think they are holding up the policy due to some mala fide intent," Vijender Gupta, Leader of Opposition in the Delhi State Assembly said. 

"I do not think it is a big issue. They just need to notify something that is already cleared in the Delhi Masterplan. Maybe Delhi government needs to rope in urban planners and domain experts to help them," Ramesh Menon, Founder Director, Certes Realty said

Delhi government declined to reply on the issue saying any comment from their side would be violating the election code of conduct that is in place because of the upcoming municipal elections.  But Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal has recently given May 7, 2017, as the deadline to implement the policy. 

Under the policy, landowners would pool their land and give it to Delhi Development Authority (DDA). DDA, in turn, would develop the land by providing roads, parks, power supply and sewage treatment plants and return 48-60 percent of the land to the owners. 

About 25,000 hectares or 62,000 acres of land falling in four zones K1, L, P1 and P2 predominantly Dwarka and parts of Narela and North Delhi would be covered under the policy. 

Besides infrastructure development, DDA also plans to build about 20 lakh dwelling units in the next 10-15 years in Delhi.

  1. Meanwhile, lakhs of people, with their earnest money invested in these land pooling schemes, are waiting anxiously from the last two years. The builders are sitting on the money of such buyers/investors, who have very little or no option to pull out of the scheme. 

  2. Regulators accused the automakers of colluding at their annual “five-person team” technical meeting. BMW, Daimler, Volkswagen and its subsidiaries Audi and Porsche attended the meeting. The European Commission said that the technology affected by the plan should have reduced harmful nitrogen oxides emitted by diesel vehicles.

  3. Boeing will cut production of its 737 MAX by one-fifth and has appointed a special board committee to review the development of its new aircraft. The airline giant said on Friday that it will cut its maximum monthly production by 10 to 42 by mid-April. Boeing plans to produce 57 737 MAXs a month this summer.

  4. Lillard does make a good point. While George likely didn’t anticipate Lillard would pull up from 37-feet initially, he should have realized Lillard didn’t have a choice as the clock ticked down. Maybe that’s a lot to ask in the heat of the moment, but it’s a fair criticism of George’s defense on the play.

  5. When do you think this Real Estate market will go back right side up? Or is it still too early to tell? We are seeing a lot of housing foreclosures in Winter Park Florida. What about you? I would love to get your feedback on this.

  6. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

  7. vuxtvs,A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment. I do think that you ought to publish more on this topic, it may not be a taboo ljjzdgllhdv,subject but generally folks don’t talk about such subjects. To the next! All the best!!

  8. It seemed like a reach at the time,Jordan particularly with Haskins still on the board and the Giants also holding the No. 17 overall selection. Given how atrocious Manning was last season,Jordan it might not be long until Jones is thrown into the fire.

  9. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something too few folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I found this during my hunt for something concerning this.

  10. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything. Nevertheless think about if you added some great visuals or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this site could undeniably be one of the greatest in its niche. Fantastic blog!
