DDA to build affordable houses for senior citizens

DDA

The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) has approved a housing scheme for senior citizens. The proposal was among a slew of measures cleared by the authority at its board meeting on Monday.

According to officials, it will be for the first time in the country that affordable apartment units will be built where citizens of 60 years and above are able to live comfortably after retirement. The idea behind the project is to provide a space where senior citizens, from all social and economic backgrounds, can spend their time together at very low costs.

DDA has identified four sites, Rohini, Dwarka, Maidangarhi and Sanjay Lake, where these housing complexes will be developed.

Balvinder Kumar, Vice-Chairperson, DDA, was quoted in the media as saying, “Five firms are in talks with us. We have asked each firm to give us designs which provide easy, barrier-free accessibility within the complexes. These firms will develop the complexes.”
