Principal commissioner (housing), DDA, JP Agarwal said “”The scheme has been linked with the Pradhanmantri Awas Yojna which means people fulfilling the criteria will get subsidy in the interest when they take a bank loan” he further added that “For a person to be applicable to get the benefits of Pradhanmantri Awas Yojna, one should not have a concrete house in Delhi, their income should be under Rs 3 lakh annually if they are applying for houses under EWS category. Besides, there are other riders.”
While this time DDA has a serious message fro the “unserious buyers” “If a prospective buyer surrenders his application before the date of draws, no money will be deducted from his or her registration fee. If a buyer does so after the draw but before the issue of a demand letter, 25 per cent of the registration fee will be forfeited,” another official had earlier said.
