New Resolution regarding the allocation of the land
With the purpose to provide useful accommodation services to International and foreign organizations, the cabinet has given his final approval for the transfer of 35 hectares of land. This land shall be used to set up a new diplomatic area by the Urban Development ministry. Chanakyapuri is one of the key areas in Delhi and external affairs ministry shall be provided with a part of it.
This new Diplomatic center is set up in sector 24 Dwarka. This sector is about one-tenth of the size of the key sensitive area of Chanakyapuri. According to the Delhi Master Plan 2021, this piece of land is being used for foreign embassies. This has been made possible through the land pooling system.
There is a joint venture between the public sector and private sector to create a partnership model. This aims to develop various areas of Delhi and turning in them into smart cities, thereby providing an Affordable Housing. The LLP model is also known as Land pooling policy is a system that is meeting the land requirements for the rising population of Delhi. The Delhi government has used possession of the land. Because of that possession, it was easier for the DDA and the Delhi government to allocate land for external affairs ministry. At present, the government has more than 3500 acres of land. These lands are held by the various departments of the government. From internal sources, it has been learned that a Zero ground rent has been demanded by the external ministry for the construction of such enclaves. Furthermore, it is being requested to keep the rate of property unchanged for 2 years. This has been subject to dispute; however, it has been resolved now. It has been agreed that by the DDA to give this piece of land for the development of offices at a little cost of 1 rupee only.
