Affordable Housing For All

Update: 27th Aug: Are you planning to take a loan on the 1.5 Lakhs down payment? The process is relatively simple in HDFC bank. If you hold an account there you would need the following documents:

1. Cheques (2) – First cheque for Rs. 6600 and the other of Rs. 1,5 L (as security, will not be cashed till you are allotted the flat otherwise it will be destroyed)
2. Photographs (2)
3. Copies of PAN number and address proof. (Self Attested)
4. Bank statement for the last 3 months.
5. The DDA form itself. (Don’t fill out the form, as there are certain things which the HDFC bank people will fill out)

    Sir, My name is yogesh kashyap. I am interested Getting Flat & for this purchasing form of this flat. But i don’t have pan card i only have a my personal saving account. So pls tell can i able to get this form and purchasing flat.Pls tell me i can get this form from to internet. Reply me as early as possible.

  2. Yogesh, in my personal opinion… there is still time to fill the form as the last date is not for another month, so why don’t you apply for a PAN card otherwise you may not be elligible for the allotement. I would still suggest you contact the Director on the phone number mentioned in the article above and get the correct info.

  3. Dear Sir
    Can you guide for following:
    1 my residence address in gurgaon can i eligible for apply
    2 What a payment terms (in %)

  4. Surendra, i am sorry but i don’t have an answer to that i suggest you call the Director of Housing.

  5. I am not able to locate link for above mentioned form on dda website can you give me its link if possible

  6. Gagan, the link we be on DDA’s website from the 6th onwards.

  7. what could be the price tag for each kind of flats ?

  8. must be one of the
    least useful web sites in the world.

    Search results are a waste of time. It produces long lists of
    links almost all with identical description:

    Complete information on the activities of the Delhi Development Authority, including tenders and notices, contact details and
    various forms and guidebooks.

    The Application Form Generator returns a silly error
    message and no form.

  9. Agreed on the website part. You cannot open the website – its so slow and if you are lucky enough that it opens then you can not find anything. It has stupid headings and you cant kno where the relevant information is.

  10. AM: I agree with you 100%, the website is completely useless… why can’t they have a simple functional website? I tried to call the Director of Hosuing (24690723) but guess what… the phone number does not work either.

  11. I am Ajay, could you tell me that will applicant submit registration money along with the forms? how much money and by cash or by dd? and when and where form can submit?

  12. Hi, the dda forms link on the dda website is in the news flashes inside a box on the righthandside of the webpage. it is blinking, so will have to look for it carefully.


    here is the link on dda website for the housing scheme 2008.

    dda not bad after all ;o)

  14. Sumeet! You are wrong, given link by you is only displayed the Application Form, not the details of Housing Scheme. For example please see Greater Noida Authority’s Website Please don’t mind.

  15. DDA IS WELCOMING ON TELEPHONE NO. 42895566 AND IS ONLY SPEAKING WELCOME TO DDA Our timings are 8.A.M to 6.00 P.M but after than it disconnects the no. I have tried this no. at 5.33 PM and 5.41 P.M but no response. What to do ?

  16. Do one should belong to Delhi for applying for the DDA houses. Does one needs proof of staying in Delhi?. Is there any reservation for servicemen in allottment of flats?

  17. Tejpal Narang on August 6th, 2008 at 9:41 pm

    I think DDA bosses must have forgotten that the dept. has a website about which they have mentioned in their ads,to upload the form required for booking of the flats.I dont know if they have the format ready?As usual Indian Babus have again proved to forget_ it is by DEFAULT.

  18. Hello all,the DDA website is not at all user friendly.With the link given by Mr Sumeet i cud download the appli form.There arn’t any details or brochure giving mandatory details.What’s the point in giving half baked details and wasting my time ,efforts and money.Can any resposible official of DDA would care to clarify,Please!

  19. himanshu mehra on August 7th, 2008 at 9:35 am

  24. Don’t bother downloading forms from the Internet as you will have to pay Rs. 100 additional in DD when you go to deposit those forms. It’s better to buy the pinted forms so that there is no confusion.

  25. parveen kumar on August 9th, 2008 at 8:55 pm

  31. Ankur & Bharat: Just call any HDFC / ICICI / AXIS bank and they will let you know where you can deposit and collect the forms.

  32. Mitthan, i don’t have much info on the loan thing either, why don’t you call any bank from the US and talk to their customer care?

    – Draft from bank from England(sterling pounds)
    Or from Indian bank in rupees.

  34. Niru: Do you have a PAN number? because without that you will not be elligible to apply.

  35. You can upload the form from the site of DDA.BUt you can not find the broucher ,which can give you the code required to fill the form.I do not know how to get that information. Secondly where to deposit this form is also not given.Thirdly the bank branches where this form is available is not known,even the branches of the bank do not know in which branch this formm is available. this type of information given on site is of no use. the public should bring these to the notice of Delhi Govt and other authorties.I think we are making the public fool

  36. Everyone: Use this link to download the DDA brochure for all info on how to apply and where to submit form etc etc.

  48. My Questions are

    2>Can he write cossepnding address of delhi & paramant address of UP with UP address proof.

  49. @ Jaspreet: HDFC for sure is, Axis should be one but i can’t sat that 100%

    @ Bakunth: Any Indian citizen can apply. UP address should not be a problem, though i would request you to read the DDA Brochure on this or call the authority.

  50. Hi,

    Request your advice on the following on which I hear conflicting views. Incase I own a flat in Delhi can I apply for the DDA Housing Scheme 2008, if the house I own a)is not a DDA house b)is a DDA house?

    Thanks in advance for your advice.

    Warm Regards,


  51. @ Gaurav: I don’t think you can apply if you own a DDA flat already, but not 100% if it is the same for non DDA flats.

  52. Hi sir,

    I want to get a DDA flat.I get a application form by internet.But I
    have a probleme to fill the application form in coloum 8 .
    sir I belong to general catogree,and I have no any code number which is fill in this coloum.
    sir please can u help me for above problem.
    please help me as soon as possible.

  53. Can a father and a daughter-in-law(already seperated but living in a same house and same address for Pan Card) apply for the DDA Flat together or not ? Please reply as soon as possible.

  54. @ Vinod: GE is the short for General Category
    @ Jagriti: As far as i know only one address is allowed per applicant even if the pan is different and the people living in the house are not related. I would request you to confirm that by calling the DDA office.

  55. rajiv kumar singh on August 31st, 2008 at 8:10 am

    I am in defence and posted in vally of kashmir. on inquiry it is learnt that personal appearance for submission of application is required. may i know is there any other solution to this ?

  56. I understand that in case of having a jointly owned flat/ plot in delhi people can apply for dda housing scheme2008 if area of plot is less than 133.8 sqm providing each one have a 50% share. In case nothing is mention about sharing during registration of jtly owned flat/plot, same figure 133.8 sqm remain valid. Mr. prashant may elucidate p/l.
    – Aravind

  57. @ Rajiv: I don’t think personal appearance is required at the time of submitting the application.
    @ Aravind: As far as i knew, joint owners also could not apply for the DDA scheme but the info which you gave is new to me so i am not sure if it would work or not. If you do get the answer, please comment here to benefit all readers.

  58. I got an email from Arvind, and this is what he had to say: It seems to me as per eligibility mentioned in DDA forms. At art 2. III it says “… If however, individual share of the applicant in the jointly owned plot or land under the residential house/flat is less than 66.9 sq. mtrs he-she can apply under this scheme”.

  59. Link to download brochure and generate form is

    Nowhere is it mentioned that residential proof should be of Delhi, but it is also not mentioned that proof can belong to outside of Delhi. What is mentioned is residential proof required. Applicant must be a citizen of India.

    Residential proof thing is dubious.

  60. you are doing a really appriciable job. keep on helping people who are in need of your assistance.

  61. Boss! I own a flat on individual basis which is less than 50 yards..I went to the Axis branch and they told me that I was eligible as it is less than 80 yards. So, I filled up the form. Now, some people tell me that the condition of a flat/flat being less than 80 yards is only applicable in case of joint owners. Please help me know what should I do not to lose my 1.5 lacs. As DDA is authorized to forfeit my 1.5 lacs. Can I get my form cancelled? If yes how?? or I should wait till the draw is done and if I go lucky, I will then sell my existing flat to get this new one.

  62. @Austin: The condition is based on joint ownership and not single ownership. I would suggest you call the DDA office and sort this out unless you are feeling very lucky that you wil get the flat and then get away with DDA knowing that you own one already. I am sure you are not alone on this… people make mistakes and DDA must have some provision for it as well.. so call them and find out.

  63. @Austin: Why don’t you confront people at the AXIS bank who gave you the wrong info?

  64. Hi ,
    i want to know about column 12 of DDA form “Preference code”. What is the significance of this. Does it mean that our application would be considered for “Lucky Draw” only for those areas for which we have given the preference. Or if we get our name in lucky draw then only they will consider the preference order to allot the flat. They said you can fill xx if you don’t want any preference. if i want my application to consider for all flats then ????

  65. One more question guys in DDA form in column 5 . NAME OF THE BANK BRANCH AND ACCOUNT No. This is These
    bank details would be printed on the refund cheque along with
    the name and refund cheque can be deposited in that account. What about the case when you are taking loan say from SBI bank…. then do you need to give SBI loan account No.

  66. @ Parmjeet: I think the name will be in the lucky draw and then the officials will see which flats would have set in your prefrence. As for filling XX.. don’t leave this blank, fill it with some other locality code even if you are not interested in the locality.. may just increase you chance is too many people have already been allotted you first preference flats. If you are taking a loan then you do not need to fill in the Account details and the correspondence address as they will be filled by the bank you take the loan from.

  67. @Prashant thanks for the reply man. one thing i want to ask, Do the preference will limit my application only to the flats which i mentioned in the preference list.

  68. One of the questions above had one from someone living in the USA, but there was no answer given. My question is the same. If someone living in the USA applies, and doesnt qualify in the draw, how does he get his refund if he has no local address to give in India.

    Where will the draft that is returned be sent?


  69. @ Parmjeet: yes the preference is limited to the options you have mentioned on the form.
    @ Sriband: How are you planning to submit the app in the first place? Both ICICI and SBI have offices in the USA and both banks are financing the DDA advance installment, so would it be possible for you to get intouch with them and get the thing financed so you don’t have to worry about the correspondence address if you are not alloted the flat or even if you are. This way the banks will be notified and you can always check with the bank.

  70. I Would like to know the payment system after allotment it will be one time or in instalment.

  71. After allotment, the payment will be payable one time to DDA. For instalment facility, you will have to seek loan from a bank.

  72. I have purchased an LIG DDA Flat some years back. We are not the original allotees; the Power of Attorney of this flat is in my wife’s name. The area of this flat is less than 80 sq. yds. The Big Question is ….. AM I ELIGIBLE TO APPLY IN DDA 2008 Housing Scheme ?
