Metro IGI line may open on Wednesday

Posted by admin On February - 21 - 2011

Delhi will join a select few cities in the world to have a high-speed corridor to the airport with Delhi Metro‘s most sensitive line likely to start operations from Wednesday, finally bringing the Indira Gandhi International airport closer to the heart of the capital.

If everything goes according to the plan and the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) completes its deployment process by Monday, the 23-km Airport Metro Express, which connects Connaught Place with the swanky Terminal-3 of the IGI, will be opened to the public on Wednesday.

However, a formal inauguration of the high-speed link, the first Metro corridor in the country to come up on a public-private-partnership mode, is likely to take place later with sources indicating that several dignitaries will be invited for the function.

DDA Results to be announced in April 2011

Posted by admin On February - 8 - 2011

The draw results for the housing scheme 2010 is expected to come out in April 2011.
Some Important things to note (as per DDA Housing Scheme 2010 Broucher)
1) The results of the draw shall be displayed on the Notice Board of DDA at Vikas Sadan, D-Block, INA, New Delhi-23. In addition the result shall be displayed on the website of DDA with the address
The result will also be published in the leading National Newspapers.
2) The allotment-cum-demand letters will be dispatched through Speed Post/Courier/Registered Post but it shall be the sole responsibility of the applicant to check the result of the draw if he/she does not get information despite the afore mentioned means. In case applicant has given address of a place/office, where entry (of courier) is restricted, all communication including dispatch of refund cheque/ demand letter on failure of courier would be through available mode. Applicant is advised to contact nodal officer of the bank as given in Annexure B in such cases. DDA/Banks in such cases would not be responsible for delay/ non receipt of communication by applicant/allottee.
3) A separate waiting list of 600 applicants will also be declared in order of priority. The waiting list will be valid only for 9 months from the date of issue of demand letters to successful applicants. The registration money of the wait listed registrants shall be refunded along with unsuccessful registrants. However, before going for the draw in case the same takes place for filling up the vacancies, all such eligible waitlisted shall be asked to deposit the registration money. 15 days time shall be given to them to do so and only those names shall be included who would be depositing their registration money prior to the draw. A draw will be held only once after six months, from date of issue of demand letters, for allotment of the surrendered flats to the wait listed registrants as per the priority decided initially. Only those flats which are surrendered within six months from date of issue of demand letters would be included for allotment to waitlisted registrants. The waiting list is created just to ensure that the surrendered flats (if any) are allotted to same registrants rather than keeping them vacant and the list will be valid only for 9 months, hence it doesn’t create any right of the wait listed registrants if they fail to get a flat from the surrendered ones. If successful, the cost would be the cost of the flat on the date the demand cum-allotment letter is issued.
