Delhi’s ‘Unauthorised Colony’ Residents Speak Out: How They’ve fared Under the PM-UDAY Scheme
Twenty inhabitants of two illegal colonies in north Delhi (Raja Vihar and Suraj Park) were the first to obtain conveyance titles and registration documents for their houses on January 3, 2020. The process of registering properties started on December 16, 2019.
Just over two years after its start, the Pradhan Mantri – Illegal Colony in Delhi Awas Adhikar Yojana (PM-UDAY) has granted ownership rights to around 12,500 inhabitants of the city’s 1,731 unauthorised colonies. Dda pm uday
As of January 3, 2020, 20 people living in two unapproved colonies in north Delhi (Raja Vihar and Suraj Park) have received conveyance deeds and registration documents for their homes, marking the official start of the property registration procedure that started on December 16, 2019.
As of February18, 2022, the Delhi Development Authority (DDA), the scheme’s implementing body, has received 96,745 applications from inhabitants of illegal colonies. Of them, 23,271 were deemed invalid. In all, 12,480 individuals were given either conveyance deeds (for properties on private property) or authorization papers (properties on public land).
While only 67 applications are waiting to be carried out, another 54,489 are stuck in the applicant’s end of the process due to various reasons. These include 43,114 applications waiting for responses on deficiencies, 10,674 applications returned due to incomplete information, and 701 applications where fees have not yet been paid.
Delhi: The City of Dreams? – How PM-UDAY has transformed the way people live in Delhi
Although approximately 4.5 million individuals have registered on the PM-UDAY site to this point, and the plan is expected to benefit about 40 million people, authorities claim there are a variety of reasons why just a fraction of citizens have gained ownership rights.
Initiation registrations were strong, but a precipitous decline occurred as a consequence of the Covid-19 pandemic only a few months later. Over 70,000 properties have been mapped using a geographic information system by the beginning of May 2020. DDA’s four processing centres in Dwarka, Pitampura, Hauz Khas, and Laxmi Nagar all continued to function normally during the lockout. During the shutdown, officials at these hubs continued to operate as usual.
Property physical surveys have been more difficult than usual owing to the continuing epidemic. The work has been proceeding, according to reports, with all necessary care taken to ensure the safety of the locals and the surveyors.
How do the governments of every country on Earth certify their citizens?
An official said that the absence of a hard deadline for the programme meant that the recipients lacked a feeling of urgency. Many locals also believed that the acquisition of a conveyance document or authorization slip wouldn’t change matters substantially.
Over the last two years, several awareness camps and discussions with RWAs in illegal colonies have taken place. An official has said that “we are offering all conceivable support” to locals in their pursuit of property rights. Pm uday yojana
