Chandigarh: State Town and Country Planning Department has notified the Affordable Plotted Housing Policy 2016 for Low and Medium Potential Towns: Deen Dayal Jan Awas Yojna, to achieve the goal of houses for all. While giving this information here today, a spokesman of the Department said that this policy would facilitate creation of additional affordable housing stock in the low and medium potential towns of the State. He said that Deen Dayal Jan Awas Yojna aims at development of ‘high density plotted colonies’ in low and medium potential towns of the State wherein small plots are made available through a liberal policy framework. Under the scheme, all such projects would be required to be necessarily completed within seven years from the date of grant of licence.
The projects would be allowed in the residential zone of the notified Development Plans of low and medium potential towns of the State. In any residential sector, not more than 30 per cent of the net planned area under residential zone, inclusive of the 20 per cent area limit allowed for group housing projects, can be allowed for projects under this policy. The minimum and maximum net planned area for such projects would be five acres and 15 acres respectively. Not more than 10 per cent of the licenced area should fall under sector roads, he added. He said that a maximum permissible area of a plot shall be 150 square metres with maximum floor area ratio of two and ground coverage of 65 per cent.
The colonizer would transfer 10 per cent area of the licenced colony free of cost to the Government for provision of community facilities. Registration of independent floors in plots and stilt parking would be allowed, he added. He said that allotment of 50 per cent residential plots covering saleable area (excluding 50 per cent area frozen by the Department) would be undertaken in the first phase by the licencee or coloniser. However, the colonizer would also carry out development works simultaneously on the frozen area also. He made it clear that 15 per cent area mortgaged towardsInternal Development Works (IDW) would be part of 50 per cent area frozen by Department upto completion of IDW in the colony. He said that the applicant would have an option to deposit the cost of internal development works with the concerned Municipality as per mutually decided rates.
