The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) Friday approved land pooling policy after considering public suggestions and objections, officials said. The policy now awaits the nod of the Union Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs. The DDAs highest decision-making body approved the policy. They had gone through the public suggestions and objections, a senior official said. This will go a long way in meeting the goals of housing for all, officials said. Last December, the Delhi Development Authoritys highest decision-making body had approved simplification of the land pooling policy in the national capital and the DDAs role as being a facilitator, regulator and planner only. This effectively meant the transfer of pooled land to the DDA will not be required. Originally, the land pooled under the policy was to be transferred to the DDA, which would act as the developer entity and undertake further sectoral planning and development of infrastructure on the land pooled.
