cancellation of DDA Flats Rohini

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.

        • Visit DDA head office Vikas Sadan with the said documents above and let them know that you want to surrender your flat.

  2. At one stage you mentioned that cancellation can be done before issue of demand letter and no charge will be deducted, while on other side you mentioned that for cancellation we need to show allotment cum demand letter to DDA, so how come cancellation will be possible before issuance of demand letter?

  3. I have filed application to the DDA for the surrender of flat.. I have fianced the One lacs Rupees through the Axis Bank.. Now should i remit Rs 1 lacs to the bank.. Or the DDA will directly give to the Axis Bank.. to get refund from DDA will be difficult one..What is the second process after giving application to the DDA??Please help as there is lot of confusion

    • DDA will not refund the amount in favor of Axis Bank as DDA accept your cancellation of flat they will issue you refund cheque/draft once you get it can clear your loan amount. For further details you have to visit the DDA head office or wait few days for the refund cheque as we don’t have more news about the refund process.
