DDA Delhi Gets 725 Public Suggestions For Delhi Master Plan Amendment
DDA has received 725 suggestions from the public on its proposed Delhi Master Plan amendment, which includes bringing a uniform floor-area ratio (FAR) for shop-cum-residence plots and complexes at par with residential plots.
The proposed move aims to bring relief to the traders from a sealing drive, which was initiated late December from the Defence Colony market in south Delhi, at the instance of a Supreme Court-appointed monitoring committee.

After issuing a notification on the Delhi Master Plan amendment about a week ago, the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) had sought public suggestions and objections to it.
A senior DDA official said, they have received 725 feedback from the public, which includes suggestions and objections. After a meeting of the board of inquiry, they will now be put before the authority and its final decision will then be sent to the Centre for approval.
The authority would take a decision on how much of the feedback would be incorporated into the Master Plan. Initially, the window to receive suggestions or objections was kept for three days from the date of notification, but was later extended to two more days. DDA has proposed to bring a uniform FAR for shop-cum-residence plots and complexes at par with residential plots.
FAR is the ratio of a building’s total floor area (gross floor area) to the size of the piece of land on which it is built. FAR for 100 sq.mtr was earlier variable, ranging from 180 to 225, but now it is proposed to be a uniform 350 for 100 sq.mtr.
The urban body has also proposed reducing the penalty charges from “10 times to two times” for the violation of the other terms and conditions for properties meant for mixed use. The proposals, which hinge on the Delhi Master Plan amendment (DMP-2021), were approved during a meeting of the DDA recently held.
