DDA allocates INR 3500 crore for infrastructure projects in next year’s budget

The DDA has allocated over INR 3500 crore for infra projects for the next financial year with a special focus on the environment.

The Delhi Development Authority has allocated the fund for projects on Wednesday in a meeting chaired by LG Anil Baijal.

The DDA which has more than 35000 flats under construction in various locations such as Narela, Dwarka, Rohini has decided to develop civic infrastructure in a new way. DDA decided to spend INR 2326 crore on land development and civic infrastructure which includes roads, severs water supply, drainage and such basic amenities.

The special focus will be on Narela with more flats. The sale of flats in Narela has been poor due to the poor connectivity of the region with the central part of the city. More than INR 1000 crore has been allocated for Delhi Metro Rail Corporation for the construction of the Rithala-Bawana-Narela corridor for better connectivity.

The corridor will be the first metro line corridor developed by DMRC in the city. Last year, DDA wrote to DMRC to reword its alignment for Phase 4 RIthala- Narela line to sync it with development proposed under the land pooling policy.

Another project is the development of Urban Extension Road-II, connecting four national highways to provide access between the north and north-west Delhi to the airport. Allocation of the Bharat Vandana park has been made for INR 280 crore having replicas of monuments across the country. Additionally, INR 40 crore has been allocated for the revival of 41 water bodies in Delhi.
