As per the new Land Pooling Policy, Delhi development of a new urbanized landscape in L Zone of Dwarka is a very big inventiveness taken in the field of urban housing by DDA in Delhi. Under the Master Plan Delhi 2022, it is a most unique step taken by the authorities to make the dream of ‘Smart City’ in and around Delhi goal possible in a stipulated time frame under Land Pooling Policy.
As per the notification by MoUD (S.O. 2687) dated 05/09/2013, as per the new land pooling policy a part of legally owned land by group of people or individuals transferred to the land pooling agency. Then the agency proportionately divides the land by retaining part of a land and returns back the other part for construction purposes.
As the DDA has failed to provide shelter for all the residents of Delhi and in addition to it, gave problems like traffic congestion, pollution, etc, the necessity for land pooling policy came into existence. In a total of 1.70 cr population, in which a 50 lakh population staying in unauthorized colonies, from the inception of DDA in year 1963, the DDA and CGHS has constructed only 11 lakh homes.
As per the most recent Land Pooling Policy I zone and other zones in Delhi, as per the parameters set by DDA and Urban Planning and Development Ministry of India the land is bought together under DDA and land owners (society, builders or farmers) on a Public Private Partnership Model. The ratio of land sharing for 5 to 50 acres land would be 48:52 and for land more than 50 acres then the ratio would be 60:40.
