DDA ready to launch housing scheme with 13,000 flats, forms on June 30

The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) is going to launch its new housing scheme on June 30. Around 13,000 flats will be kept for sale this time. There will be a large number of flats returned in the 2014 Housing Scheme. DDA Housing Scheme 2017 has got covered under Prime Minister AwasYojana (PMAY) thereby one will get subsidy on interest of home loans. DDA vice-chairman MrUdayPratap Singh said, “We will launch Housing Scheme on 30th June.”

The housing scheme will be available from Rs7.5 lakh to Rs1.44 crore. Prices will depend on the type of flats and the area. Most of the flats will be of LIG One-Bedroom Category. A senior officer said, “There are more than 10,000 flats in the LIG one-bedroom category which are ranges between Rupees fourteen lakhs to thirty lakhs.’

As a nodal agency of PMAY in Delhi, DDA will help people to take advantage of the Credit Linked Subsidy Scheme (CLSS). Mr. JP Agarwal, Principal Commissioner of Housing and Land Disposal in DDA said, “Under the scheme, the eligible allottee can get subsidy on interest and under this scheme one can benefit fromRs 2.4 lakh to Rs2.7 lakh. However, the same allottee will be benefited by CLSS which will meet the provisions of the scheme on income and other scale.

The draws for the allotments will be conduct within three months from the last date of submission of the form, but this time, unalike the previous time, it has been ensured that only real buyers will apply for flats. Thus, it is decided to impose penalty of 25 percent to 100 percent on Ernest Money. While giving the requisite form for the flats, people will have to pay one lakh rupees for LIG, while for MIG and HIG,  Rs 2 lakhs will be given as an Ernest money. However, no fines will be imposed on those people who will withdraw their applications before the draw.

Earlier this scheme was coming in the month of March, but DDA has decided to complete the pending works and provide basic facilities to those places. This decision was taken after the complaints regarding the absence of infrastructure in areas like Rohini and Narela by the people who has got the allocation of flats under the 2014 Housing Scheme.

GST may raise price of flats nearing completion

The buyers who are paying installments for their flat, presently, they are paying 4.5 percent service tax. But after 1st July 2017, as soon as the GST comes into regulation, the buyers may have to pay 12 percent GST rather than 4.5 percent service tax. In the same way, its shows that right now one is paying less amount of money in the form of 4.5 percent service tax, but after GST it will raise the value of service tax to 12 percent which in turn increase the burden of tax on buyers. Thus, if one buys a home of any project after July 1, which is completed and nearby completion, then one have to pay more money in the form of 12 percent GST rather than 4.5 percent service tax.

Builders claim that the reason for raising 7.5 percent (4.5 to 12 percent) tax on GST is that they will not be able to claim credit from the tax paid before the GST is implemented. Most of the projects that have been completed or are due, most buyers have already paid 90 to 95 percent of their share. In such cases, the burden of heavy tax will be on the remaining 5 to 10 percent of the amount. After 1 July, any invoice issued by the builder will take 12 percent tax. Many developers have already sent a notice to give more tax on the remaining amount to the buyers.

We try to explain this whole case of increasing tax burden on buyers with the help of an example. Let’s say that any buyer has bought a flat of Rs1 crore, for which first installment of Rs 20 lakhs have been given along with 4.5 percent service tax. Now, he has to pay remaining 80 lakhsfor which the buyer will have to pay GST at the rate of 12 percent rather than 4.5 service tax. Thus, the buyer had to pay Rs 3.6 lakhs as a tax at the rate of 4.5 percent service tax on 80 lakhs but due to the GST being implemented now, he will have to pay 9.6 lakhs rupees at the rate of 12 percent.

Further, now the investors will have to pay on carpet area at the time of flat purchase and not on the super area. At the same time, when purchase will be on carpet area then there will be a registry of the flat will also be as per carpet area.
