Lieutenant Governor , Najeeb Jung, has asked the housing agency to make it compulsory for flat applicants to give details of their Aadhaar cards. The move is aimed at preventing fake identity documents being used for filing multiple applications and attempts by profiteers to corner more than one flat for selling them at a premium.
Aadhaar is a 12- digit individual identification number issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India on behalf of the Government of India. This number serves as a proof of identity and address, anywhere in India.
A bulk of the flats to be put on sale by the DDA in one of its biggest housing schemes will be meant for the economically weaker sections and priced around Rs 12 lakh to Rs 14 lakh. Nearly 27,000 houses in Rohini, Narela Sirsapur and Dwarka will be put on sale in the first week of July.
In a recent meeting with DDA officials, LG had highlighted the fact that the benefits of the new scheme should go to genuine home seeker and not those who indulge in malpractice of selling Delhi Development Authority flats for a premium.
