The DDA has extended the last date for making interest-free payment of the cost of flats by allottees of the 2021 Housing Scheme to August 31 in view of the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic, officials said on Saturday.
The allottees of Dwarka Sector 16-B flats, however, will not come under its ambit, they said.
The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) on March 10 had allotted 1,353 flats to people under a housing scheme through an online draw of lots.
The last date of payment of the cost of flat (interest-free) was June 29, except for the allottees of Dwarka Sector 16-B, officials said.
After having considered the situation due to the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, the competent authority has now decided to extend the last date to August 31 for making payment of the cost of flats (interest-free), they said.
The extension of the last date is, however, subject to the condition that the payment of the demanded amount is made within this extended period, otherwise, the benefit of the extension will not be admissible to the allottees, the DDA said.
