JDA Jaipur Invites Application For Plots Which Received Poor Response
Learning from past experience, the residents are not purchasing plots in colonies developed in far-flung areas by the Jaipur Development Authority (JDA). Despite inviting applications twice for selling nearly 1,255 plots in three schemes, the JDA has not got a good response from residents. Now, once again JDA Jaipur invites application (online) to sell plots in Udai Vihar, Surya Nagar (Block- A) and Abhinav Vihar Vistar.
For the third time, applications are being invited. The applicants can apply until April 20. The application fee is Rs 500. The lottery would be drawn on May 2.
As these schemes are developed in far-flung areas in zone-14, not many residents have applied to purchase the plots. The residents feel cheated by JDA as in past it failed to provide even basic facilities for several years in many of its residential projects.
Due to the absence of electricity and water, the sites of these colonies continue to wear a deserted look. Since 2005, the civic body has launched 31 housing schemes. But there is no habitation in most of the colonies.
An official source said that the JDA should only start colonies in far-flung areas after seeking no-objection certificates (NOC) from the water and electricity departments. Both these departments have locked horns with JDA over the development charge issue. Also, these departments claim the colonies are far away and it is not feasible to provide water or electricity as huge capital is required to develop infrastructure, the official said.
JDA launched many housing schemes after a gap of four years. The cash-strapped body earned a revenue of Rs 700 crore from those schemes. However, this money has not been spent on developing these colonies.
