DDA always stays in the news for its Flats scheme and the allotments. And at this time, DDA has come-up with a new mission of developing 1 lac Flats [in which 2300 EWS housing flats will be constructed in Pocket-8, Sector 23B, Dwarka (Near Radhasoami Satsang Center and Pochanpur Village)] with new Prefabricated Technology.
To display what kind of the future flats would be developed, DDA has also built a block of 60 sample flats for the EWS (Economical Weaker Sections). These Sample flats have 1 Bedroom, a Kitchen, a Bathroom with Ceramic Tiles and a lobby area. Each building has five floors in it.
In every housing society will have separate Community Center, Park, Grocery Shops, Guard Hut and Sufficient Parking Space.
Here are a few photos and a video taken from OriginalTips.com :

On the very first time, DDA is using new Prefabricated Technology to construct almost 1 Lac Flats.
Prefabricated Technology uses Natural Cement, Portable Slabs, Staircases, Beams, Precast Columns etc which could be easily shipped and assembled. The Houses which are developed by using this Prefabricated Technology, are known as the Prefabricated Homes [or Prefab Homes or 3 S Technology (Speed, Safety and Sustainability)]. Prefabricated Technology is considered to be environmental friendly, as use of timber is completely eliminated in developing such homes.
Such homes typically take 2 to 3 months to get built.
By using this portable technology, DDA will save a huge amount of time and money as well.
Other Benefits :
1. Expenditure will be lowered by 25-40%
2. Provides Relief from the problems of Strong Winds, Fire and Water Problems
3. Effective in Earthquake Prone Areas as well.
Apart from the Flats in Sector 23 (Dwarka), DDA is also bringing around 11000 flats in Rohini, 6000 flats in Narela and Najafgarh by using the same Prefab Home Technology. The tentative completion year for this project is 2014.
The Union Cabinet Minister of Urban Development, Kamal Nath, has said to Original Tips, that DDA has taken a nice initiative by bringing such scheme for the Economical Weaker Sections.
First this technology will be used only in the EWS and LIG Flats, but if it gets success, then MIG and HIG Flats will also be constructed by using the same Prefab Home Technology.
Tentative Cost for Flats : As per DDA Officials, 1-Room flats are estimated to cost about Rs.4 Lacs. To get profit, DDA will sell them at a price of Rs.4.5 Lacs. While 2-Room Flats will be sold at Rs.9 Lacs.
