“Earlier the decision was to refund the money within three months, but I thought why should people unnecessarily keep their money deposited and lose interest? That is why I have decided that now the amount shall be returned within a month,”

As the registration amount for the LIG, MIG and HIG flats was Rs. 1,00,000 and for the Economically Weaker Section (EWS) category flats was Rs. 10,000.

The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) makes it very clear in their brochure that they will not pay any interest to the applicants up to 90 days. The new decision has taken by the DDA to reduce the burden of interest on the applications who borrow loan for the registration amount from the banks.

In any case if DDA fail to pay the registration money within the 90 days to unsuccessful applicants then they will pay an interest at the rate of 8% per annum starting after 90 days. The housing scheme was closed on Wednesday 15th October 2014 and received around 7.5 lakh applications from across India for the 25,034 flats on offer.

  3. Hi Kapil,I had applied for the DDA flats this year and unfortunately I dint got the draw. Now I have applied the flat online in my wife name but used my bank details to pay the initial Rs 1Lakh amount to DDA. When I receive the cheque from DDA recently the cheque is in the name of my wife with my bank Account no. So its obvious the bank cannot clear the cheque as my bank account has not my wife name. So just need to know what is the best alternative to clear my cheque.Hope to hear your reply soon.

    • Tarun contact your bank through which you have receive the cheuqe and let them know the error it should be correct by your banks if they don’t take any action then have to visit DDA head office.

  6. Hi Kapil,

    While applying for DDA, I had given the NRE account to get the refund but later i realized that, only foreign currency can be credited to NRE account not Rupees. I have received the cheque also but as the account number mentioned on the cheque is of NRE account, I am not sure whether bank will accept it or not. can you please guide me on this. Do we have a way to change the account number.

    Thanks in advance.
