The draw, which started at around 12.30 pm, was held for 10,294 flats and there are 45,012 applicants, PTI reported quoting a senior official on Tuesday afternoon.

The randomised computer-based draw of lots for the scheme was held in the presence of retired high court judge S N Aggarwal, Anshul Kumar of IIT-Delhi and deputy director-general of National Informatics Centre (NIC) Vishnu Chandra, the official said.

Earlier, the DDA had said that the scheme was for sale of nearly 18,000 newly-built flats in Delhi's Vasant Kunj and Narela areas and it had received around 50,000 applications.

Officials, however, did not elaborate on why the number of flats on offer and applicants was reduced.

Of the 45,012 final applicants, 36,409 are from general category, 5,021 Scheduled Castes and 2,025 Scheduled Tribes and 97 war widows, among others, the official said.

Persons with disability would be given first preference for allotment of ground floor flats, he said.

The DDA Housing Scheme 2019 was launched on 25 March, offering flats under four categories. The flats available in these categories are — 488 (HIG), 1,555 (MIG), 8,383 (LIG) and 7,496 (EWS), reported PTI.

The deadline for application was extended by a month till 10 June, after it received a not-so-encouraging response.

"As many as 17,922 flats are on offer in four categories HIG, MIG, LIG and EWS," a senior DDA official had said earlier.

For the economically weaker section category, the application fee was fixed at Rs 25,000, for LIG it was Rs 1 lakh and for MIG and HIG flats Rs 2 lakh.

On 11 June, DDA's vice-chairman Tarun Kapoor attributed the poor response from applicants to the bulk of flats being located in Narela are in outer Delhi, among other factors.

Recently, the DDA had approved a proposal to reduce the cost of EWS flats in Narela, part of the online Housing Scheme 2019, "by up to 40 percent of the construction cost".

The modified rates would apply to allottees of the current scheme.

In case of leftover flats, it would be re-advertised soon at reduced rates. This will make these flats available at concessional rates to the economically weaker section, it had said.
