DDA approves Additional Development Control norms in land pooling areas

Delhi Development Authority has given final approval for Additional Development Control (ADC) norms in land pooling areas. In the board meeting held on Tuesday ADC norms for areas notified under Land Policy 2018 were approved. “For ensuring holistic, smart, sustainable strategy for planning and development of the sectors in land pooling areas, the authority has given final approval,” DDA said in a statement.

The proposal was initially approved in the authority meeting held on April 13, and thereafter it was put in public domain for inviting objections and suggestions from general public. It will now be forwarded to the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, for its consideration and final notification.

Some of the main feature of the policy include high intensity mixed use development along major transportation corridors, introduction of vertical mixing of uses first time in Delhi, priority for walkability and enhanced open spaces in sectors, permitting plotted development cluster at minimum size of 5000 Sq.m on net residential plot and de-centralized physical infrastructure provisions for liveable, smart and sustainable developments among others.

DDA’s Land Policy notified in 2018 aimed to foster land development in partnership with land owners making them equal partners in the development process. The policy has received an encouraging response with approximately 6930.4 hectare of land submitted as on 20.12.2020 under the DDA web portal under Land Pooling Policy. Playing the role of facilitator, DDA has also taken various strategic initiatives for operationalization of the policy and is also working towards initiating planning and development in some likely to be eligible sectors.

The Policy is presently applicable in the urban extension areas of Delhi, comprising of 95 villages falling in Zones J, K-I, L, N and P-II. This entire area is divided into 109 sectors and on an average each sector is about 250Ha to 350 Ha and is anticipated to accommodate about 80,000 to 1 lakh population.
