To process the allocation of affordable homes under the affordable housing for all scheme aided by the state government of Haryana, the authority has taken up several initiatives. In order to ensure the streamlining with ease, the department of town and country planning (DTCP) has introduced a digital-driven drawing system. From now on, the interested and needy individuals are required to register online via the DTCP portal to avail benefits of affordable housing under the state-oriented affordable housing scheme. Once the registration portal is closed, then soon enough the draw of lots will take place online as well, the names of individuals drawn at first will be allotted with the proposed houses. The beneficiaries will get the confirmation via SMS messaging service.
Mr Sanjeev Mann, the Senior town planner, mentioned that so far the Realty developers advertised their affordable housing projects and distributed forms directly or through agents, following which the draw for allotment of flats was conducted in the presence of the senior town planner (STP). But since, the department has been receiving constant complaints about irregularities in allotment and unavailability of the application forms. To fix this, a digital system is introduced to streamline the online system of filling forms and allotment.
As per the new norms, a developer will have to submit an online application with details of the projects and the tentative date of draw. After scrutiny, the STP will provide the approval and it will go live, which will be visible to the general public. Prospective residents are required to get a login id by registering on the website coupled with their mobile number. When the process is complete then all the inputs filled by the prospective buyers will undergo a scrutiny process conducted at the developer’s end.
