DDA slashes charges for property misuse


O2MEHFY1383911767The Delhi Development Authority has decided to revise its property misuse policy to encourage people to get their property converted from leasehold to freehold.

The land owning agency has decided to regularise misuse charges on a slab-based system. The duration for computing charges will be counted from the date of detection of misuse by the land owning agency, according to report in the media.

Officials said the decision was taken as few people had come forward to get their property converted from leasehold to freehold since the launch of the scheme in 1992. “In some cases, misuse charges were turning up to be more than the property’ cost,” said Balvinder Kumar, Vice-Chairman of DDA.

Officials admit there are several properties where people have violated the use of property clause.
