DDA to hike interest rate for housing registration deposits28 June,2014
NEW DELHI: Delhi Development Authority has decided to pay simple interest at 8 per cent instead of the current 5 per cent on registration deposits for all its future housing schemes, the urban body said today.
The decision was taken at a DDA meeting today at Raj Niwas here.
DDA said in a release here that the decision was taken in order to "narrow the gap" between the interest paid to the allottees and that charged for delayed payments for its housing schemes.
However, it added that old cases which have been settled shall not be reopened.
The decision will also apply to earlier "alive" schemes where the deposit has been kept for more than three months from the last date of closure of the scheme, the statement added.
It was also decided during the meeting that computerised bills would be made available for Dwarka sub-city and Lok Nayakpuram by June 30, which would also be accessible on the DDA website.
