In case you want to continue with the flat and want to know what is the process to get flat then you must read my recently publish article: Procedure to Follow by Lucky Applicants to Get the Flat.
One of my website “Development Authority” one of the user asked me this question that what is the procedure for cancellation or surrender of DDA flats as he is not happy with the flat I have pasted one of the reader comment below about the Rohini flat situation:
“Yes. Like all the above members, even I haven’t got any official communication from DDA till date. Only yesterday I had visited DDA Flats at Rohini 35, and the size of the bedroom in 1BHK was a shock to me. You can’t put your standard double bed in that bedroom, its too small. Kitchen has very little space. I don’t know where somebody will put his kitchenware and other items? Roads are quite broad in the colony, but houses looks like a cramped cane. You can’t move freely in your own house. This is total negligence of human life. Very bad design. These houses look good and well designed from outside, but ugly, bad designed and inhuman from inside. I am still undecided, if I should keep it or not?”
With the above pasted comment you can understand the how bad condition of flat is from inside well below I have shared how can you submit request to cancel the flat and what documents are required for the same.
