The Delhi government, Delhi Development Authority (DDA) and municipal corporations of Delhi have been told by the urban development ministry to sort out various issues to enable notification of regulations for the land pooling policy.
The issues discussed at a meeting held on Tuesday included notification of 89 villages as urban areas by North municipal corporation (50 villages) and South municipal corporation (39 villages), notification of a total of 95 villages as urban development areas, transfer of about 12 percent of developed land to government of Delhi, waiver of stamp duty on transfer of developed land by DDA to farmers/promoters and verification of ‘Sajra’ maps for these villages.
While North and South municipal bodies have passed resolutions for notifying 89 villages as urban areas, the Delhi government has sought some clarifications regarding provision of civic amenities in the developed areas keeping in view the increase in population in a long term perspective.
On transfer of developed land to the Delhi government, DDA stated that in accordance with the Master Plan of Delhi, land would be provided to Delhi government on need basis as is being done now. Delhi government was asked to consider the issue of waiver of stamp duty on transfer of developed land to farmers/developers keeping in view that the final sale of developed real estate properties to buyers would result in significantly enhanced revenues through registration.
While the land pooling policy was finalised in 2013, regulations in this regard were approved in May, 2015 and the same are still to be notified.
