SC panel now to monitor DDA colonies

Regularisation rush In MCD

NEW DELHI: Delhi is poised for some sweeping changes if the new Master Plan 2021, which was notified on Wednesday night, passes its last hurdle — 
the Supreme Court's scrutiny. At the same time, much of its chaotic (some town planners call it organic) growth will continue with shops and offices 
dotting residential colonies. 

The "please-all" Plan, as Urban Development minister Jaipal Reddy described it, clears the way for taller buildings which will bring in 'redensification'
of existing colonies. The higher floor-area-ratio (FAR) permitted by the Plan will allow most houses to go up to four floors. 

In fact, the buildings can be taller — going up to 14 to 16 floors — if builders and developers are able to amalgamate an area of at least 
4,000 sq m so long they take care of three things: set up an effluent treatment plant so as to not choke up the sewerage system, 
put up solar panels to generate some power and build underground parking space. 

Slums will go but not the slum-dwellers, if the government keeps its promise — as enunciated in the Plan document — 
to build highrise tenements where slums currently sprawl. Each tenement will have a built-up accommodation of 25 sq m. 
The Plan promises that 50% of all new dwellings in the city will be for the poor. 

At the same time, about 1,500 unauthorised colonies were legalised by the Union cabinet on Thursday (as reported by TOI on Wednesday). 
This has been factored in the new Plan. However, three upscale illegal colonies — Sainik Farms, Mahendru Enclave and Anant Ram Dairy have not been legalised yet. 
The final list of the legalised colonies has not been released as yet, nor the full Plan document. 

The plan's mantra is to develop housing through "a mix of redensification, redevelopment and creation of new housing in urban extension of about 20,000 hectares.
" The accent will be on group housing — in fact, only 10% of new land to be released will be for independent houses. 

The jury is still out on whether the new Plan will lead to the creation of a world-class city. While some believe that it is a document motivated mainly 
by political expediency, some others believe that the way the city has grown can't be reversed altogether and the Plan, to that extent, is realistic. 

The Plan will be submitted to the Supreme Court as it has wanted to see if the new Plan was merely a ploy to legalise all previous irregularities, 
or if was it actually a blueprint for the city's future growth. 

Said Jaipal Reddy: "I am confident that Master Plan 2021 will stand legal scrutiny." 

While the market will virtually ensure that much of the city will grow taller if the new FAR norms are allowed by the court, 
it is difficult to assert that all slums will, indeed, go as their replacement by highrise tenements will depend on whether the government actually keeps its promise and coughs up with the money to build the tenements. 

An important aspect of the new Plan is that it ends DDA's monopoly on land acquisition and development of housing stock. 

Private developers have been encouraged to amalgamate land and develop them for housing. Some 'heritage' areas, 
like Lutyens' Building Zone, Nizamuddin area, Mehrauli area and Chirag Dilli, will be left untouched under the plan

Delhi Master Plan notification within a fortnight 
GoM clears draft; Govt. to approach Supreme Court again 
NEW DELHI:January 24 The Group of Ministers headed by Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil on Tuesday approved of the draft Master Plan for 
Delhi-2021 paving the way for its notification within a fortnight and development of the national Capital on modern lines in future. However, 
while the Master Plan seeks to provide relief to people from sealing, its notification is not likely to take place before the January 31 extended 
deadline for traders to file affidavits before the Supreme Court on closing their establishments in unapproved areas. 

During the nearly two-and-a-half hour meeting, the Union Urban Development Ministry made a presentation before the GoM on the Master Plan. 
The 10-point presentation highlighted issues pertaining to mixed land use, redevelopment, slum rehabilitation, private participation, conservation 
and rejuvenation of the Walled City, relief to schools and health centres from sealing, environment, heritage, power, water, parking and public transport. 

Among other things the Master Plan envisages planned development on 27,000 hectares in the city. It has also approved of private participation
in mega construction projects and high-rise building activity in the city. The green belt proposed along the borders in 56 villages will also remain. 

Following the meeting, Union Urban Development Minister S. Jaipal Reddy told the media that it was decided that the new Master Plan would 
be notified within 15 days. Since it would be notified by February 5, the Government has decided to approach the Supreme Court yet again for 
explaining the position and seeking some more time for the traders. 

Stating that the GoM has cleared the final draft of the Master Plan, Mr. Reddy announced that it has also authorised the Union Development 
Ministry to make any changes, if need be, to the Plan document. The Minister said the meeting had also decided that the Master Plan would be 
reviewed every five years so that issues pertaining to the changing needs of Delhi could be adequately addressed. 

The meeting was also attended by officiating Lieutenant Governor A.R. Kidwai, Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, Union Ministers Kamal Nath, 
Meira Kumar, H.R. Bharadwaj, Kapil Sibal and Ajay Maken. During the meeting, sources said, it was also conveyed to the members 
that the draft Master Plan had also been shown to United Progressive Alliance chairperson Sonia Gandhi and she had approved of it. 

The GoM stressed the need for implementing the Master Plan properly and demanded that Geographic Information System mapping 
be undertaken to prevent violations .

Draft Master Plan lacks vision: Traders 
New Delhi, January 16
“The present draft of Master Plan 2021 lacks vision and foresightedness and is, therefore, unable to cope up with the growing requirements of people of Delhi,” alleged several trade leaders, doctors and lawyers from the Capital at a joint press conference held today under aegis of the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT). 

They presented a memorandum of demands to the Urban Development Minister Mr Jaipal Reddy and state minister Mr Ajay Makan.

They demanded that chemist shops and other establishments providing health related facilities should be allowed throughout the Capital without any condition. It is submitted that existing nursing homes, doctors’ clinics, pathological and research laboratories, etc should be allowed across Delhi and proper mechanism should be developed for future growth of medical facilities. 

“Scope of Professional Category should be enlarged to cover other categories like any non-stocking business or professional activity not restricted under law. Further, professions paying service tax should also be included in Professional category,” the traders demanded. 

Ban on commercial activities in colonies categorised as A and B did not sound well, they said. 

The traders body demanded ‘arbitrary’ powers of RWA’s regarding continuance of commercial activities should be withdrawn and the trade bodies operating in respective areas should be given equal status at par with that of RWA’s wherever it was deemed necessary.

All pre-DDA Act colonies, resettlement colonies including post-Partition rehabilitation colonies like in Rajouri Garden, South Extension, Lajpat Nagar etc should be declared as commercial areas and be given status of rehabilitation colony, the CAIT demanded.

Walled City and its Extensions, Karol Bagh and other areas bearing predominant commercial use and declared as commercial in MPD-1962 should be declared as fully commercial areas and no conversion charges should be Levied, the trade leaders said.

Localities developed by Municipal Committee or any other agency prior to 1962 like Kamla Nagar etc should be declared as fully commercial areas because of enormous and large commercial use of properties. Lal Dora and extended Lal Dora Area should be treated as one entity and commercial activities may be permitted on narrow streets below 6 metre width in Lal Dora Area and extended Lal Dora Area.

‘New Master Plan will not provide relief from sealing’ 
New Delhi, December 26
Accusing the Delhi Government of ‘misleading’ the people, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) today claimed that the Master Plan 2021 was not going to provide any relief from sealing and demolition drives. BJP Delhi Pradesh President Dr Harsh Vardhan said that the implementation of Master Plan was already delayed by six years. 

The new Master Plan was almost ready and will be presented before the board for approval and implementation on December 29. After its approval, the Master Plan running into 200 pages will be implemented in January 2007. 

“In such voluminous document, there is no mention about relief from sealing and demolition. Most likely, the sealing and demolition drives will continue the next year too,” Dr Harsh Vardhan claimed. 

He expressed doubts on the utility and practicability of the Master Plan 2021. He said that the quittance for the missed development and the relief, which should have been given through the Master Plan during the last six years, have not been mentioned in the proposed Master Plan. 

The BJP Pradesh President said, “The government had decided to hand over the work of construction on valuable land residential and commercial areas to the builder lobby. Due to this, the cost of houses, shops, offices etc. will go many times higher. The dream of the common man to have his own house will remain a dream.” 

In the Master Plan, the role of the DDA had been limited to a planner only, he claimed. The DDA will become “a white elephant”, he added. 

There was great stress on multi transport system, roads of Delhi and sky scrappers in the proposed Master Plan, he alleged. 

Dr Harsh Vardhan said that Delhi government had claimed that in the Master Plan, efforts would be made to make Delhi a heaven. “The reality is that Delhi is taking its last breath due to lack of basic amenities. In the budget of 2006-07, huge amount was allotted to the transport sector, which was given top priority. But even after one year, the government has been able to utilise only 42 per cent of the allotment.” 

This year, 1801 people were killed in accidents due to bad roads, he alleged. “The multi-transport system about which Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit has been talking loudly is only mentioned on the papers. The Chief Minister has declared that in the new year, 800 ultra modern low-floor buses will run in Delhi. But the fact is that not a single corridor is ready for these buses as yet,” the BJP leader claimed.

The 140 MGD capacity Sonia Vihar Water Treatment Plant was at present supplying only 35 to 50 MGD water, he claimed.

Govt assures Master Plan by January-end
NEW DELHI: Under sustained attack from BJP for failing to address the sealing crisis in the Capital, government on Monday promised to finalise the Capital's Master Plan 2021 by January end in an attempt to regularise most of the unauthorised and illegal constructions. Replying to a heated discussion in LS, urban development minister Jaipal Reddy said that 1,400 illegal colonies would be regularised by a decision of the Union cabinet. 

Under attack from the opposition BJP and pressured by Congress MPs representing Delhi, Reddy made it clear that government would do everything possible to blunt the edge of the sealing operation launched under the Supreme Court instructions. 

Admitting that the government agencies' control over land in the Capital "did not reflect the ground reality", Reddy said that his ministry was trying to "freeze the situation as it exists today and suspend any punitive action" against traders and other establishments accused of violating law. 

Government, he pointed out, has already issued a public notice proposing changes in the masterplan. He claimed that 90% of the people affected by the sealing operation had got relief. 

The process of regularising the unauthorised buildings is on, Reddy said. He said that of the 14,033 shops sealed, 9,000 had already been desealed. The government, he said, will build one lakh dwelling units in the next two years in the Capital. He said there was no threat of demolition to schools earmarked as illegal constructions and the government would continue to give them protection. 

Earlier, BJP deputy leader V K Malhotra said that it was quite surprising that Congress MPs like Sajjan Kumar were "congratulating" the Centre. The relief from the court was temporary and it was extraordinary that Reddy had, just a day ago, said that he did not know when the new masterplan would be ready. 

Malhotra pointed to Reddy's past statements when he had said that the BJP MP was spreading panic to point out that the Centre had completely messed up handling of the sealing crisis. "You said nothing would happen. But it did. We told you that the law to put off sealing by a year will not work, but you insisted it would," said Malhotra. He also pleaded with the government to change its position that there would be no small shops in the A and B colonies. 

Participating in the discussion, minister for science and technology Kapil Sibal called for adopting newer technology to deal with the problems thrown up by the city's enormous growth. Claiming the present law to be ‘outdated' in coping with issues like massive migration into Delhi and resultant pressure on its infrastructure, Sibal said the judiciary too should accept this reality.

Master Plan Delhi 2021
What is a master plan? Our master plan is a strategic comprehensive plan to develop the vision and mission of Delhi’s Parks & Recreation Department as well as 
its goals and objectives. This study will investigate current conditions and usage levels for all facilities and programs, evaluate the quality, recommend future facility 
and programming improvements, and identify strategies necessary for implementing the recommendations.

How is as master plan developed?A master plan must be a citizen-driven plan. The plan is truly based on community needs. Rather than focusing on the past, 
we want to document our present situation and predict trends which will shape the future. This can be accomplished by creating an active Citizens Advisory committee, 
holding public workshops, mailing surveys to households, meeting with seniors, user groups, the Development Services Department, etc.

What is the time frame for completing a master plan? Indications show that master planning can take up to 12 – 15 months to complete. It is our goal to have a
community-needs assessment in place by the year's end.

What information can you expect to see in a Master Plan?Project goals, Planning processes, Population trends, Land use trends, Programs, 
an Overview of Parks & Recreation, Township park land, Recreation facilities by others, the Parks and Recreation classification system, Geographic 
distribution of parks and facilities, Interest groups, Public workshops summaries, Mail survey results, Facility needs analysis, Future visions, 
Land acquisition & capital projects priority rankings, Capital budgets, Potential funding sources, Estimated operation and maintenance costs, Priority recommendations, Action plans.

NEW DELHI: Unscrupulous builders may soon find it impossible to hide behind terms like "super area" to conceal the real floor area of apartments they are selling. 
A new law to regulate real estate developers will require builders 
to exclude common spaces and balconies while spelling out the floor space of a residential unit. 

The proposed Bill, a draft of which the Centre is currently working on, will make it mandatory for the builder to specify the area of an apartment in the sale agreement. 
Besides, a break-up will have to be provided of what the builder is charging for the apartment and a separate calculation for charges levied for common spaces like corridors, parking and lifts. 

The Real Estate (Regulation and Control) Bill would allow the buyer to know clearly which common facilities and areas can be used freely and where residents 
would have limited access. 

Builders often juggle between carpet area and super area to confuse buyers, who end up not knowing the floor area of their houses. There have been instances 
of apartments in the same block having different floor areas and builders even adding parts of common spaces into the floor area of a flat.

NEW DELHI: Stating that the new Master Plan for Delhi-2021 would be made public and notified by this coming December, Union Minister of State for Urban 
Development Ajay Maken has announced that it would have provisions for permitting dwelling units on 27,000 hectares of land in the Capital and easier 
floor area ratio (FAR) norms for vertical development of the city.

This is the first time a time frame has been given for notification of the new Master Plan for Delhi. 

Mr. Maken made this announcement while releasing an ASSOCHAM study on Housing For All here on Monday evening. 

He also disclosed that a model Housing Regulatory Authority Bill was ready for circulation among all States including Delhi for setting up of Housing Regulatory 
Authority and would be introduced during the winter session of Parliament. 

Mr. Maken said the new Master Plan for Delhi would have provisions to allow builders to make multi-storied buildings on agricultural land to accommodate the 
growing needs of housing and even allow single-floor house owners to convert their dwelling units to multi-storied houses to maximise the use of their land. 

However, Mr. Maken said the Government had no plans to permit the hoteliers to add rooms to their hotels, as it would not solve the problem. Instead, 
the Government was considering allocating them separate sites to build new hotels as that would help meet the growing demand of tourists, he added. 

The Minister also stated that the draft Bill for the proposed regulatory authority would be referred to Parliament's Standing Committee on Housing shortly 
before it is introduced in Parliament. 

The proposed authority will have a single-window system for giving all clearances to real estate developers within a stipulated time of 40 days to ensure proper 
development of the city.
SC panel now to monitor DDA colonies

Chapter 15: Mixed Land Use


Mixed use essentially means provision of nonresidential activity in residential areas. In the situation, where in a number of residential areas, 
commercial activity has already intruded formulation of a balanced policy of mixed use considering its environmental impact and the socio-economic need of the society is of utmost public importance.

On a single premise or in an area, mixed residential and non-residential activity has its positive and negative environmental and socio-economic impacts. 
It suits the present socio-economic needs of a large section of the society and reduces the transportation needs and traffic movement considerably. However, unless properly regulated and in certain conditions it could have quite an adverse effect in terms of congestion, pollution and general inconvenience to the people of the area. In view of the above the following approach is suggested: -

1) Non-residential activity on residential premises should be permitted selectively and carefully taking into consideration community needs, 
environmental impact and provision for safe and easy traffic circulation and adequate parking.

2) In case of new developments, planned mixed residential and non-residential activity should be introduced right at the time of the preparation of the l
ayout plans along with the planning of Commercial Centres for which appropriate provision of parking, circulation and services be kept in view. 
Norms for parking and commercial use
on different floors be specified.

3) Notified provisions made in the earlier plan may be continued within the overall framework of the approved plan. Mixed use may be permitted on 
residential plot facing streets/road of minimum 18.0 mts. ROW in regular residential plotted development with the prescribed development norms, 
such streets should be notified and
given wide publicity. Bungalow Areas of Lutyens’ Delhi and Civil Lines, government housing, institutional / staff housing and areas of heritage and national 
importance shall not be covered under the Mixed use Policy.

Any trade or activity involving any kind of obnoxious, hazardous, inflammable, noncompatible
and polluted substance or process shall not be permitted.

Mixed use could involve household industries (as per specific conditions provided in the section pertaining to industries), Retails Shops, Professional Activity 
and specific other uses as indicated here after:

The following activities will not be allowed under mixed use:
1. Retail Shops:
Building materials (timber, timber products, marble, iron and steel and sand)
Fire wood, coal and any fire hazardous and
other bulky materials.
2. Repair Shops:
- Automobiles repair and workshops
- Cycle rickshaw repairs
- Tyre resorting and retreating
- Battery charging
3. Storage, Godown and Warehousing
4. Junk shop
5. Liquor Shop
6. Printing, Dying and Varnishing
7. Any other activity, which may be notified from time to time.

For other Retail shops, Mixed use in notified streets will be subject to the following conditions: -

i) Mixed use shops only on ground floor upto the maximum of ground floor coverage.
ii) There should be unconditional surrender of front setback, which should not have
boundary and shall be only used for parking.
iii) Parking @ 2.0 ECS per 100 sq.m. shall be provided within the premises.
iv) Cost of development of parking / common parking @ 2.0 ECS per 100 sq.m. in commercial areas shall be payable by the beneficiary.
v) For Master Plan Roads, the premises/ activity areas should be approached from service lane and direct approach from the main road should be discouraged.
vi) Permission of mixed use would be taken from the concerned local Authority and will be subject to payment of conversion charges
vii) The planned character is to be maintained. No encroachments shall be permitted on
the streets.

Professional activity would include non hazardous and non nuisance kind of activity based on professional skills where the main premises of the concerned 
professional like a doctor, lawyer, architect etc. would be separate and only out of office hours services could be rendered from the residential premises. 
In such cases, on part of the premises on any floor subject to a maximum of 25% of the FAR or 100 sq.m, whichever is less for services based on professional 
activities shall be permissible.

The following specific activities may be permitted in residential premises on plots of a minimum of size of 209 sqm. facing a minimum road width of 18 mts. 
ROW (9mts. in ‘Special Area’ and 13.5 mts. in Rehabilitation Colony).
a) Pre–primary schools (Nursery / Montessori Schools, Crèche etc)
b) Nursing homes
c) Guest houses
d) Bank
Further, the permission of residential land and building for the above activities shall be governed by the provisions of Notified Regulations in this regard except for 
Pre-Primary school which should be restricted only on ground floor equivalent to the permissible ground coverage.

Banquet Hall
As per the survey conducted by MCD in May 2002 in respect of Banquet Halls it is observed that about 64% of existing Banquet halls are situated in residential 
use zones, 18 % in industrial use and 18 % in commercial use zones. Banquet Halls, which do not cause hindrance to the general public and provide for parking 
can be permitted on mixed use streets, where commercial activity is permissible, subject to the following conditions. Banquet hall shall be permitted in Residential 
and Commercial use Zones with minimum plot size of 333 sq.m, facing minimum 18 mts. ROW roads in residential plotted colonies (13.5 mts. in Rehabilitation 
Colonies and 9 mts. in Special Area). The ground coverage, FAR, height and basement etc. shall be applicable as per the Master Plan norms for specific landuse 
in which the premise is situated, subject to the conditions in respect of parking and sanitation facilities, hygienic disposal of waste and appropriate levies /charges 
laid down by the Authority from time to time.

i) The quantum of Mixed use Area and its allocation/ distribution for various categories of Residential areas in New Area shall be specified in the layout Plans.
ii) The layout plans would clearly earmark areas/ plots for Mixed use, preferably located opposite/ adjoining designated commercial areas.
iii) The Plan may provide for mixed use on residential plots at appropriate locations grouped together facing 18 mts. ROW roads and above as per requirements. 
The quantum of area to be worked out and common Parking areas to be marked in the plan.

Because of conversion of use/activity the conversion fee shall be charged from the beneficiary as decided by the Authority from time to time

Chapter 16: Land Use Plan


16.1 LAND USE PLAN-2021
The Land Use Plan-2021 has been prepared based on
i) The policies enunciated for different urban activities,
ii) Requirement of additional social and physical infrastructure,
iii) Transportation and work centres,
iv) Restructuring of land uses along the MRTS corridors based on the studies and considering the inter relationship between the urban activities, 
environment and the image of the city
v) Already approved Zonal Development Plans and land use modifications.

In order to control the development, the areas have been designated as one of the 27 use zones identified in the Development Code. These use zones 
have been classified broadly in ten categories of land uses namely Residential, Commercial, Industry, Recreational, Regional Park / Ridge, Transportation, 
Utility, Government, Public and Semi Public Facilities and Agriculture and Water Body. The development in these use zones would be carried out in accordance 
with the regulations as given in the Development Code and respective chapters.

The NCTD has been divided in 15 Zones (Divisions). The Zonal Plans of seven zones have been approved and notified whereas the Zonal Plans for the
zones ‘G’, ‘H’, ‘M’ and ‘P’ (Narela) are at various stages of approval.
The boundaries of the zones ‘O’, ‘P’ and ‘N’ as given in the MPD-2001 have been modified and accordingly the areas have been computed approximately 
as given in the table 16.1

Table 16.1: 
Zone Zone Name of Zone Area (Ha.)
A Old City 1159
B City Extn. (Karol Bagh) 2304
C Civil Line 3959
D New Delhi 6855
E Trans Yamuna 8797
F South Delhi-I 11958
G West Delhi-I 11865
H North West Delhi-I 5677
J South Delhi-II 15178
K-I West Delhi-II 5782
K-II Dwarka 6408
L West Delhi-III 22840
M North West Delhi-II 5073
N North West Delhi-III 13975
*O River Yamuna / River Front 8070
P-I Narela 9866
P-II North Delhi 8534

* Zone may be redefined in consultation with the concerned agencies.

The zonal plans shall detail out the policies of the Master Plan and act as link between the Layout Plan and Master Plan. The development schemes and 
layout plans indicating various use premises shall conform to the Master Plan / Zonal Plans. The Zonal Plans of the areas shall be prepared under Section 
8 and processed under Section 10 and simultaneously the modifications of land uses shall be processed under Section 11(A) of the
Delhi Development Act 1957. Already approved Sub Zonal (earlier Zonal) Plans in conformity with the Master Plan shall continue for the areas where the 
Zonal Plans have not been approved. The Zonal Plan in the form of
Structure Plan should be formulated within one year of the finalisation of the MPD-2021.

In absence of a Zonal Plan of any area, the development shall be in accordance with the provisions of the Master Plan.

The Walled City and its Extensions, Karol Bagh and the area in between with contiguous specific use has been designated as Special Area for the 
purpose of development since it is not possible to develop the old built up area in accordance with the general use zone regulations given in the Development Code. 
The development within this area shall be carried out as per the norms and regulations as given in the relevant chapter.
