Delhismartcities Welcomes Land Pooling Question on #TalkToAk

Delhismartcities.com has asked following question for #TalkToAK” show, through Facebook and Twitter:

Dear Honourable CM,

Though your Delhi Govt has been evading questions, meetings, memorandum, letters and every sort of communication over land pooling policy.
But after I heard about “#TalkToAK”, i got some hope, and hence writing this to you.

I have a simple question, why is your Govt delaying land pooling policy. First you asked for Gram Sabha land, and now you are asking for 12-15% shared in the pooled land.
Since, DDA has agreed to allot you land @Re1 for social infrastructure like medical institutions, maternity centres, night shelters, and orphanages, we expected prompt declaration of urbanization of land pooling villages and declaration of these LPP villages as Development Area.

We request you to clear this policy at the earliest, and help in creating affordable and EWS houses in Delhi, for people who unanimously
voted you to power by land slide margin.


We thank CM Kejriwal for taking up question on land pooling policy on the show. It shows his commitment to the policy and the preparedness of his Govt. towards it.
We understand Delhi Govt.’s concern over land requirement for creating social infrastructure, which led to demand of 10% share in pooled land from DDA’s kitty.
We will also highlight the recent announcement from Central Govt, which has potential to end the stalemate between Delhi and Central Govt. The Union urban development ministry has instructed DDA to allot Delhi Govt land @Re1 for social infrastructure like medical institutions, maternity centres, night shelters, and orphanages.

Since, people of Delhi has voted both AAP and BJP to power at state and centre respectively, they should not be deprived of affordable housing, just because of different ideologies of these two Govt. Current sky high prices of residential properties in Delhi is either  forcing lower and middle class people out of Delhi or forcing them to resort to unauthorized colonies. Both these choices are detrimental to the Delhi, as it leads to revenue leakage to neighbouring states and also puts a question mark on their commitment to provide housing to its people.

We put a humble request to both state and centre Govt. to implement this much needed policy ASAP, so that affordable housing through Master Plan Delhi 2021 meets its deadline, and people lead a respectable life in the national capital.
