The Delhi development authority on 8 May 2013 had declared Twenty-six villages as development areas which are identified as low density residential areas under the farmhouse policy.
A resolution in this regard was passed at a DDA meeting. Now, the DDA will be responsible for regularisation of farmhouses and providing of civic amenities in these low density residential areas.
It is being considered as a necessary step to ensure overall integrated development of urbanisable area under the recently approved land pooling policy and also the planned development of low density areas like farmhouses, country homes, etc, to declare villages identified as low density residential areas as development areas of DDA.
The DDA has drawn up a list of 26 villages for development under a policy that seeks to regularise farmhouses built before 2 February, 2007, including built-up area beyond permissible limits, by levying penalty charges.
The funds that will be collected through levy for regularisation of existing farmhouses are supposed to be shared by DDA and MCD as per modalities decided by the Centre.
Also, In another development, there is plan of providing more floor area ratio (FAR) to the city hospitals based on the width of the right of way — of the road outside — and subject to no-objection certificates from agencies concerned.
