Dear waiting Rohini Scheme registrants,
Wishing you and your family
a very Happy & Prosperous Dipawali.
to the information on Supreme Court website, pending case [Rahul Gupta v/s DDA] is listed for hearing on 21.01.2014.
Latest on 21.10.2013
For arguments, (most probably concluding
or final arguments), Hon’ble Supreme Court has ordered to list the ongoing PIL case [W.P.(C): 16385/2012; Rahul Gupta
v/s DDA] in the month of January, 2014.
Exact date will be announced shortly and will be informed to you all accordingly.
Latest on 21.09.2013
Next date for hearing of the pending PIL at
Hon’ble Supreme Court
DDA allotted hundreds of plots
in 2003, 2004,
2005 & 2007 to Rohini Scheme registrants and
collected entire plot value. Most
shockingly, majority of these allotted plots
are still undeveloped and un-inhabitable.
Photocopies of these allotment
least one for every year said above) are
for proving the status of “un-
inhabitable condition” of these allotted plots
even after 6-10 years of allotment and even
collecting total plot value.
Those who can arrange
such allotment letters
may send neatly done photocopy of such
letter(s) to Shri Rahul Gupta at his
mailing address only through ordinary post.
158 – Munirka
New Delhi – 110067
Hearing on PIL listed in post lunch session
Because Hon’ble SC bench was busy in other important work after lunch and on account of 'no time left', the
ongoing Rohini Scheme PIL case was not heard.
New date will be announced for hearing of pending PIL case at Supreme Court on Rohini Residential Scheme.
Latest of 01.08.2013:
Because both the designated Hon’ble Judges are part of the
Constitution Bench at the Apex Court which is functional since 23.07.2013, the SLP/ case [Rahul Gupta V/s DDA] which was fixed
for 25.07.2013, has not been taken up for the hearing/ decision so far.
Latest of 13.07.2013:
According to the latest information received through RTI from Delhi Police/ DDA, about 1700 Bigha
(approx. 145 hectare) Rohini Scheme land falling in Sectors 34, 35, 36 & 37 is directly affected because of recent interim
Stay on Rohini Land by Hon’ble Supreme Court and this land either has been allotted by DDA directly to the Rohini Scheme
registrants and/or is meant for laying the mandatory services to allotted plots. As a result, all ongoing development works
for Rohini Scheme allottees as well as those carried out by DDA for any other purpose in these Rohini Sectors has come to
Also, because of the long pending dispute on Rohini Land, DDA has informed the Court that out of
total allotted 7592 plots of different sizes from Sector 36 & 37 to Rohini Scheme registrants, physical demarcation of
4316 plots only have been completed so far. Hence, 3276 plots, which have already been allotted to scheme registrants, are
still to be physically demarcated by DDA and this information is of great concern. Apparently, about 1234 plots in Pocket
C1 & C2 of Sector 36 and about 2042 plots in different Pockets of Sector 37 are yet to be physically demarcated by DDA,
a mandatory requirement before making any allotment. Those scheme registrants, who have been allotted the plots in these sectors
/ pockets, are advised to write a letter to the DDA seeking the “present status of allotted plot” to them.
It would be important to note that through 2 different land acquisition notices isssued under the
provision of Section 6 of Land Acquisition act in recent past, the Land & Building Department of NCT of Delhi has re-initiated
the process of acquiring the same land again for DDA’s Rohini Residential Scheme, part of which land already stands
allotted by DDA to 1981 Scheme registrants in past 8-9 years including those allotted on draw date 12.06.2012 & 09.11.2012 in
response to the Hon’ble Delhi High Court order dated 14.03.2012. DDA had already planned to develop on this
land mandatory services of water & sewer connectivity for many Rohini Sectors including Sector 28, 29, 30 & 32.
Hence, previously allotted plots (between year 2004 & 2009) as well as recently allotted plots in Sectors 28, 29, 30 &
32 for 1981 Rohini Residential Scheme registrants will remain UN-INHABITABLE for many more years to come by virtue of the
latest SC order.
Latest of 15.06.2013:
It is apparent that DDA may not handover even undeveloped plot in next 3-4 years and a getting a developed plot may not
be possible in next 5-6 years. DDA has allotted plot number on provisional basis of reduced size & undeveloped plot to
majority of remaining scheme registrants and 700 registrants are still to be allotted a plot number. It is also apparent that
the recent stay from the Hon’ble Supreme court is a handy work of DDA to gain more time and hoodwink the court as well
as the scheme registrants.
To highlight the issue afresh in the Print & Electronic Media, hundreds of you have suggested me to organize a series
of Protest/ Dharna at DDA office before the next date at Supreme Court in July. Because I am litigant against DDA on the Rohini
Scheme issue, I have reservations to take part in such protest etc. However, such types of activities can be organized/ arranged/
attended by any individual scheme registrant or group and I will be more than happy to see “any such like minded group
coming forward for the cause and doing something”.
IMPORTANT: Many scheme registrants have already died waiting for a plot from DDA and claimant of such registrants are facing
difficulties in getting the scheme registration mutated in their name.
Most of remaining registrants are already 70+ years old and due to age factor, some of us may not see own house on a plot
in life time, which we booked with DDA in 1981, and to avoid any inconvenience to family members/ legal claimant, it is suggested
that you may start thinking of transferring your scheme registration to a family member (who does not own any residential
property in Delhi) in your life time. Please note and be informed that if the scheme registrant/ mutatee is alive and if he/she
wish to transfer the scheme registration to a family member, the process is simple and less cumbersome. You are advised to
take proper legal opinion on this issue from an expert.
Consequent to the latest development (Stay by Hon’ble Supreme Court on Rohini Scheme land of Phase – IV &
V), it is apparent that DDA will not deliver even the undeveloped plot by December –2014 due to many excuses(legally
untenable). Now DDA cannot demand any money from Rohini registrants for provisionally allotted plot - until these are fully
Hence, for some more time we all have to be satisfied with mere paper allotment of plot. By allotting a plot number, which
is again on ‘provisional basis’ to about 24,700 waiting scheme registrants, DDA has merely hoodwinked the registrants.
And about 700 scheme registrants are still waiting for even the provisional allotment.
My prayer with the judiciary for ordering DDA to allot (1)applied size and, (2)fully developed plots from already developed/semi-developed
Sectors as well as (3) award suitable compensation, is pending at the Hon'ble Supreme Court for order. I am excitedly
waiting for the next date at Hon’ble Supreme Court while keeping a close watch on any further related developments
Most interestingly, the villagers [petitioner(s) in SC] of Barwala/ Rohini area are now demanding the land back to them
which was acquired between 2003 & 2004 from them and handed over to DDA for Rohini Residential Scheme Phase – IV
& V and compensation for this acquired land was awarded in 2005. Having already collected happily the awarded compensation,
these villagers have filed cases for enhanced compensation now.
Not only DDA has already allotted this land to Rohini Scheme registrants and thousands of EWS flats for resettlement of
Jhuggi dwellers and factory workers which are half way constructed, it has already planned additional several thousands of
LIG & MIG flats on this land for general public. DDA has plans to allot more Rohini land to various Govt. agencies for
housing purposes and also to build thousands of EWS/ LIG flats for resettlement of Jhuggi dwellers and other weaker sections
of society in co-operation with Delhi Govt under various central Govt. ‘Awas Yojna’/ schemes. DDA has plans to
corner thousands of crores of rupees from commercial plans/ projects/ activities on this land and the land in question is
also being used for an important corridor i.e. between Narela to Gurgaon via Bakkarwala, Najafgarh& Dwarka.
It will be interesting to observe, what the Delhi Govt (who acquired the land), DDA, Ministry of Urban Development defend
the villagers'case ? DDA and Govt are in deep trouble.
Good news for the scheme registrants who have already arranged a house in Delhi on their own and are fearing of getting
cancelled the allotted plot or scheme registration on account of ‘already owning a property in Delhi.’ In one
more case recently, the Hon’ble Delhi High Court has turned down a decision of DDA of cancelling the Rohini scheme registration
on account of ‘already owning/ arranging a flat/ house (without getting it allotted by DDA).’
News Flash 22May2013
01.05.2013 at Hon’ble
As directed by the Hon’ble
Supreme Court and as expected by us, by not giving any time to us to file our rejoinder before the court date of 01.05.2013,
DDA handed over to us a “vague & improper status Report” at the last moment i.e. on 30.04.2013.
By stating the details
of already carried out (negligible) development and by taking unconstitutional and thus challengeable excuses, the new deadline
for completing the required development has been stated as “December – 2014 with a condition of no further hindrances from any side”.
A detailed news item carried
out by Navbharat Times (Delhi edition dt. 01.05.2013) on DDA’s Status Report is reproduced hereunder.
However, there were brief
arguments and our learned Advocate Prashant Bhushan ji reiterated our earlier stand/ saying of “DDA is making mockery
of the constitution by submitting falls and illegal affidavits and also by disowning its own various earlier assurances/ submissions/
affidavits of completing the development definitely by December-2012, May-2013, September-2013 etc etc.”
Since, no time was left for
completing the arguments and proceedings on 01.05.2013, now the PIL case at Hon’ble Supreme Court will be listed for
further decisive arguments after the summer vacation.
On 31.03.2013, a meet of “team dda-rohini.tripod.com”
was attended by 40+ like-minded members and also the scheme registrants, some came even from far-off places to attend
Rahul Gupta appraised about the latest on
Status of committed
development – which DDA is supposed to complete by May 2013 definitely,
What DDA intends
Status of the
PIL case at Delhi High Court as well as at the Supreme Court and
Fruitful open discussion was held on all points
relating to the scheme including, size of plot, rate of land and where the scheme registrants stand.
It was unanimously resolved & decided that the present fight will continue till all
the scheme registrants are allotted applied size & fully developed plot with suitable compensation,
Fight will also continue till the plots with mandatory services are not handed over to
all scheme registrants.
Because DDA has failed to fulfill its own
various commitments including ‘allotment of plot to all remaining scheme registrants’ and has even failed to comply
with various High Court order(s) and also because the Hon’ble Delhi High Court has already given the liberty to the
petitioner to file a separate application and file contempt against DDA and its officials, it was unanimously resolved &
decided that a fresh PIL or appropriate application, seeking direction on other leftover important issue(s) and/ or application
of initiating contempt of court will be raised/ filed before the Hon’ble Delhi High Court and/or Hon’ble Supreme
Court, at appropriate time.
Rahul Gupta has agreed to extend his knowledge,
expertise & help to the scheme registrants, who are members of “team
dda-rohini.tripod.com”, on Rohini scheme related matters/ problems.
Team “dda-rohini.tripod.com" wishes Happy Holi to all Rohini scheme registrants.
Team “dda-rohini.tripod.com" appreciates the care taken by registrants to preserve
DDA’s Public Notice of seeking acceptance of reduced size plot and thanks for helping the team with a copy of the same
in response to request.
Even after a year, DDA has failed to call for demand of payment against (24,529 + 139) Nos.
plots (undeveloped and reduced size) allotted on 12.06.2012, in light of Delhi
High Court order dated 14.03.2012. Also, there is no sign of allotment of plot to leftover scheme registrants as assured immediately
by DDA then. Further on surveying the site it is observed that completing the mandatory developmental work on the allotted
plots appears definitely impossible by May 2013 as promised by DDA.
Land for execution
of mandatory services, in newly demarcated pockets, still remains under encroachment of some sort and DDA rights on these
lands are facing challenge in court. Tenders for many developmental works are still to be called for. Ground realities of
developmental work are totally different, from what is being presented by DDA in the court and it is feared that DDA
will seek more time for completing the same. Most shockingly, even the plots allotted between 2004 & 2009, are still remaining
undeveloped. Judging by the pace, it appears that the first batch of fully developed plots (June2012 allotment) cannot be
delivered over a long time from now.
Although, ‘interim application of additional prayer in already
disposed of writ’ has again been disposed of at Delhi High Court, the Hon’ble bench at Delhi High Court has given
the liberty to the petitioner “for filing an independent writ petition, seeking the same relief which he has sought
by way of this application.” Because, various promises made by DDA have already gone flat and numerous High Court orders/
directions have not been complied with, filing contempt petition against DDA and its officials is already available to the
petitioner Rahul Gupta.
After the argument of about 2 hours and 15 minutes on previous date, Hon’ble Supreme Court
directed DDA to file the status of development, and the next date fixed for further hearing is 01.05.2013.
Scheme (MIG) registrants
1999, DDA released some Public Notice, inviting application from MIG scheme registrants (who opted for a bigger plot of 90 mtrs
as first preference) to give their consent for allotment of a 60 mtrs plot.
of land was cited as reason for not able to allot 90 sq mtr plot then and it was assured that the scheme registrant, who consented
for the allotment of 60 sq. Mtr plot, will be allotted 60 sq mtr plot early on
scheme registrant opted for this option.
If you happen
topreserve the copy of this Public Notice, I would be thankful to you for forwarding this immediately to me.

Update of 14.02.2013:
Proceedings in Hon’ble
DDA submitted application
seeking extension of time till Sept-2013 for completing the development and other codal formalities of allotment including
handing over the possession of plot by May-2013 earlier committed in Hon’ble Delhi HC.
After a debate of about 2 hour and 15 minutes
by eminent lawyer Shri Prashant Bhushan ji representing the petitioner Rahul Gupta for Rohini Scheme registrants, DDA was
ordered to update the status of mandatory development, on its commitment in Delhi High Court through affidavit dated 06.03.2012
which was then accepted by the Hon’ble HC in light of DDA’s previous affidavit dated 05.09.2011 (making a
draw, issuing demand cum allotment letter, collecting the money and completing the related Codal formalities, completing the
committed mandatory development and finally handing over the possession of a fully developed plot definitely by May - 2013)
and by virtue of the said affidavit, the Delhi High Court order dated 14.03.2012 permitted DDA to allot reduced size and undeveloped
Now, the SLP (challenging
the Hon’ble Delhi High Court order dated 14.03.2012)
is listed for further hearing on 01.05.2013 in the Apex Court.
During the debate in SC, as per oral submission of DDA’s
counsel in the Court room, it is most likely that the sale rate of land to scheme registrants is likely to be minimum
Rs. 25,000/- per Sq. Mtrs and this issue can be challenged individually as well as in a group in Delhi High Court.
Likeminded individual(s) or group of scheme registrant who want
to fight for the fair rates of plot with DDA, Shri Rahul Gupta will extend all support and his expertise to such individual(s)
or group(s). Willing Scheme registrant(s) are requested to contact Rahul Gupta only on his mail address (firstname.lastname@example.org) for any assistance or information.
One group led by Shri Vipin Kumar Gautama (Mobile No. 9810297800) is
working aggressively to fight the issue of fair rate with DDA for the benefit of individual scheme registrant(s). Likeminded
and willing MIG & LIG scheme registrants(s) who want to fight for fair plot rate issue with DDA for ensuring such benefits
on individual basis can contact Shri Gautama immediately for further clarification and becoming a member of his group.
wishes all Scheme Registrants Seasons Greetings and a very Happy New Year.
Latest of 12.12.2012:
After listening in length to renowned counsel Shri Prashant Bhushan
ji, who is representing the petitioner Shri Rahul Gupta, Hon’ble bench at Supreme Court of Hon’ble Justice Dattu
ji and Hon’ble Justice Prasad ji has listed the SLP for 2nd week of February – 2013 for final hearing in
SLP (Civil) no. 16385/2012 pending a verdict.
As suggested on 12.07.2012, those scheme registrants/ mutatees including
their dependents, who owns a residential plot/ flat/ house in Delhi and/or are living in Delhi in a house/ flat purchased
from open market (not allotted to them by DDA) or gifted to them or transferred to them due to inheritance, must clarify
in all correspondences/ affidavits to DDA that “the property, they are living in/owning, is not allotted to them
directly by DDA” as the case may be.
1. Against DDA's own promise on 12.06.2012 to
allott the plots to remaining scheme registrants within 3 months, about 800 scheme registrants of MIG, LIG & EWS
category are not yet been allotted. Those who have not been allotted the plots so far are advised to appeal in writing
to the Vice Chairman - DDA, requesting to honour the commitment made in Delhi High Court.
2. Against DDA's own promise in High Court to
begin dispatch of the allotment cum demand letters within 4 months of date of draw, already 6 months
have passed, but the demand cum allotment letters have not been dispatched by DDA so far. Those who have been allotted
the plots, are advised to apeal in writing to Vice Chairman – DDA, reminding him of commitment made in Delhi
High Court and to dispatch the demand cum allotment letters immediately.
is in the interest of all registrants that in all communication with DDA, they affirm the following:-
“My acceptance of allotted plot No. #### Pocket ### Sector
### to me through Rohini scheme draw dated ##.##.2012 against my Rohini Residential Scheme – 1981 application no. ######
is subject to the final outcome of pending SLP (civil) No. 16385/2012 at Hon’ble Supreme Court and pending CM No. 3182/2012
in PIL W.P.(C): 8765/2009 at Hon’ble Delhi High Court.”
This shall bind DDA to obey the court orders uniformly to all registrants.

Latest of 11.11.2012:
Public Interest Litigation (PIL) on Rohini Residential
Scheme is listed for hearing/ decision at Hon’ble Supreme Court on 23.11.2012.
We hope that the Hon’ble Supreme Court will Direct with
standing orders to DDA to allot applied size and fully developed plot to all waiting scheme registrants at the earliest.
On 09.11.2012, DDA has conducted a draw of 139 plots of 60
sq. mtrs to leftover MIG scheme registrants. Apparently, these “now successful registrants” were not considered
for allotment of a plot on 12.06.2012, because DDA suspected that these applicants were allotted a residential property or
flat by DDA through its previous housing schemes. DDA has made it clear that “The allotment of plot to scheme applicants,
who have been allotted the plot on 09.11.2012, is subject to confirmation of allotment of flats on various Schemes.”
All those waiting MIG registrants who were not allotted the
plots on 12.06.2012 are advised to visit/ contact DDA immediately to know the details of plot allotted to them and/or latest
status of their scheme registration.
Unfortunate MIG scheme registrants, who have not been allotted a
residential property/ flat by DDA through its past housing schemes and not declared successful for a plot through draw of
09.11.2012, are advised to contact Mr. Rahul Gupta on email@example.com giving complete details of their scheme registration and correspondence
made with DDA in recent past.
Dear waiting Rohini Scheme registrants,
you and your family
a very Happy & Prosperous Dipawali.
to the information on Supreme Court website, pending case [Rahul Gupta v/s DDA] is listed for hearing on 21.01.2014.
Update of 11.Oct.2012:
Although, last date (i.e. 03.10.2012) of accepting the documents for verification and genuineness is passed over, DDA is still
continuing to accept these documents and issuing a computerized receipt. Those, who have not yet deposited required documents,
are advised to do so immediately.
While making the draw on 12.06.2012, through Press Release DDA announced that remaining left over registrants will be allotted
plots in next three months. However, through an affidavit dated 18.07.2012 in the Supreme Court the Commissioner (LD)-DDA
submitted that remaining left over registrants will be allotted plots in 4 months time (from the date of last draw ie; 12June2012).
Both these targets are passed over, but DDA has not made any draw for remaining left over scheme registrants so far. We hope
that DDA will fulfill its latest commitment of conducting a draw of plot to leftover scheme registrants immediately.
Most of you have written letter to DDA & other concerning departments/ officials that “allotment of reduced size
(illegally done in 1999) and undeveloped plot is un-constitutional and because the matter is pending in SC/HC any such allotment
is unacceptable.” If the copy of such letter (already sent to VC-DDA) has not been posted to “Rahul Gupta”,
you are advised to send the same immediately to “Rahul Gupta, 158 – Munirka Vihar, New Delhi – 110067”
through ORDINARY POST only.
As informed to you earlier, the deadline for completion of development has once again been changed by DDA on its own
to May-2013 through its affidavit dated 06.03.2012 in HC, and same is challengeable. Thereafter now even after a subsequent
submission (affidavit dated 24.09.2012) in SC swearing to complete the development as per HC order, DDA says afresh that ‘it
has no deadline to complete the development’. This amounts to “Contempt” of HC order at first and secondly
amounts to misleading the court with modified submission in SC and the same has already been taken-up appropriately in
SC by Rahul Gupta.
DDA is still trying its best to dupe the scheme registrants and to derail the fight for allotment of “applied/ bigger
size (size applied/opted in 1981) and fully developed plot immediately to all waiting Rohini Scheme registrants”, but
we will not permit them to succeed and the fight is still going strong. Volunteers are welcome to join “team Rahul Gupta
& dda-rohini.tripod.com” and those who wish to help monetarily also, may contact Rahul Gupta “firstname.lastname@example.org” or S.Y.Narayanan “email@example.com”.
Update of 01.10.2012:
Deviating from their earlier commitment in the Hon’ble High Court to complete development on all allotted plots
by May 2013 (Allotment date 12June2012), DDA has filed a fresh (challengeable) affidavit in Hon’ble Supreme Court,
revising their plan as to complete development in about 60% of the plots by September 2013 only. Status of the balance
remains a mystery. Through this latest affidavit, DDA has crushed the hopes of scheme registrants of getting posession
by May – 2013.
Update of 21.09.2012
Thank you all for continuing support for Rohini cause.
Although the fight against DDA on Rohini cause is for all waiting scheme registrants, every genuine scheme registrant,
who wants to help fighting for legitimate rights, is welcome to join “Rahul Gupta and ‘dda-rohini.tripod.com’
team”. Monetary contribution was never a condition to join the team and, for your information please note that volunteers
having different expertise are also present with us and participating actively and as such new members are always welcome.
More importantly, we need your well wishes to accomplish the task in hand.
Our constitution permits us to demand and fight for following demands and sufficient supportive documents are already
with me and/or have already been placed on the record with the court.
1. Applied size plot. (applicable only for those, who applied a 90 Sq. Mtr. MIG & 48 Sq. Mtr. LIG
2. Fully developed plot at the earliest.
3. Suitable compensation.
Important details of pending court case(s) as well as developments are being made available on ‘dda-rohini.tripod.com’
on regular basis. It is always not possible to explain on phone, lengthy details about the status of the court case(s) and
on finding a solution to individual queries. Trust all concerned shall appreciate my position. It is my earnest desire to
give you all satisfactory information. As such registrants may use e-mail for individual queries which is always replied by
me, within limits of my knowledge and expertise. If you read carefully the earlier posts on ‘http://dda-rohini.tripod.com’, you will find answer(s) to most of your queries.
As far as the ground situation stands, DDA has not done much so far after the draw of 12.06.2012 and at this speed,
no one will be able to get possession of even an undeveloped plot by the end of 2013. For a fully developed plot it may be
another 3-5 years.
The next date of hearing at Hon’ble High Court is 05.Dec.2012 and case at Hon’ble Supreme Court is
fixed for 01.Oct.2012. Thanks

Update of 31.07.2012
According to an ‘Unsigned Notice’ pasted on one of the ‘door’ at DDA office at Vikas Sadan,
INA, New Delhi, the last date of submitting the required documents for ‘verification and genuineness’ is 17.08.2012.
This date is applicable for all those, who have or who have not received the letters from DDA so far.
Updates of 12.07.2012
Now DDA has started dispatching intimation letters, informing the ‘provisional allotment’ and plot number allotted
through already challenged 12.06.2012 draw.
Through its Press Release dated 12.06.2012, the DDA has admitted that these plots are undeveloped and necessary development
will take ‘some time’. It has also been reported that a good number of plots carved out and allotted in sector
34, 35, 36 & 37 are falling in the disputed land(unresolved cases with Villages).
Through this letter of intimation, the registrants are also being sought by DDA to submit documents for the purpose of
verification and eligibility. One of then is “an affidavit of not owning a property”. The format of this required
affidavit is challengeable on following grounds.
1. This affidavit/ undertaking has already been collected by DDA from the registrants at
the time of accepting the application for the Scheme and to the best of our knowledge, without having this affidavit, the
application was not accepted by DDA in 1981.
2. Other eligibility condition was that “the applicant or his wife or his dependent
children were not having a share of more than 65/67 sq. mtrs in any jointly owned residential property in Delhi or New Delhi
or Delhi Cantonment.”
Clearly, had the applicant was the joint owner of a residential plot of 64 sq. mtrs, he was authorized to make the application
for a plot under the Scheme. According to the building by-laws (minimum 1.5 FAR) applicable in 1981, he/ she could have build
a house of about 960 sq. ft and according to the building by-laws, he is permitted to build three storied house (minimum 2.5
FAR) with minimum 1600 sq. ft covered area.
After applying for a plot from the Scheme, many of you may have become owner of a residential property because of gift
by family members or due to inheritance or due to some other reasons as well.
3. Despite of having sufficient land in its possession, of DDA’s own mistakes
& wrongdoings and no fault of the registrants, the registrants were not allotted the plot in promised ‘5 years time’.
Also, for the past 32 years DDA kept on befooling the registrants on various illegal grounds.
DDA did not allot the plot in the originally promised time and even considered scraping the scheme in 2006. After 32 years
of launching the scheme, it anticipates that the scheme registrants should live on the mercy of the DDA only and should not
think of owning a residence of own (purchased from open market) and should have remained without a roof of their own. Had
we been allotted a plot in five years from the time of registration, that is say by1986, and then we would have immediately
built a house and would have lived happily all these past 25 years. By not allotting a plot within the promised time frame,
DDA has deprived us of a good life and has forced us to spend a big slice of our hard earned savings for buying a roof from
open market. Just because of the criminal collusion a few officers of DDA (this includes several IAS officers also) and the
land mafia, not less than 25000 families suffered a setback in their prime years of life. No court will pardon DDA for this
In this freshly required affidavit, the date/ period of applying in for the scheme is not mentioned and because this affidavit
will be signed today, in simple words the DDA wants an affidavit declaring that ‘as on date, the scheme applicant or
his/ her spouse and his minor children does not own a flat’, which is challengeable.
4. On the issue of owning a property by the scheme allottee (at the time of allotment),
DDA has canceled a number of allotted plots in past and a number of such unfortunate allottees took the help of Hon’ble
Delhi High Court as well as Hon’ble Supreme Court to get restored the cancelled plot/ registration. In almost all such
cases the decisions of the courts were in the favor of the plot allottees and DDA had to restore the cancellation of such
plot allotment(s). The fact is that DDA has delivered the possession of such canceled plots to the allottees and/or restored
the cancellation of illegally done registrations/ allotment by it.
In our opinion, those who own a residential flat or plot in Delhi – purchased from open market or even purchased
through an open auction by DDA (may be after 1986), are eligible for the allotment of plot from the 1981 ROHINI Scheme and
may consider submitting the affidavit with complete facts of the ownership of house/flat on following line:
At the time of applying for a EWS/ LIG/ MIG plot of ______ sq. mtrs. under the Rohini Residential Scheme – 1981,
neither I, nor my wife/ husband or my minor children were owning in full or in part on leasehold or freehold basis of any
residential flat or plot and as on date, neither of us have been allotted a residential flat or plot by DDA on subsidized
rates in Delhi/ New Delhi or Delhi cantonment.
I also declare and submit that at the time of applying a EWS/LIG/MIG plot of _____ sq. mtrs under the Rohini Residential
Scheme – 1981, neither I, nor my spouse and dependent children were having a share of more than 65/67 sq. mtrs in any
jointly owned residential property in Delhi or New Delhi or Delhi Cantonment.”
That I have purchased a flat/ plot bearing no. “details/ address of purchased property ” of _____ sq.
ft/ mtrs from the open market in the year _____.
That I have become owner of a plot/ flat bearing no. “details/ address of purchased property ” of _____
sq. ft/ mtrs because of inheritance/ gift.
Before submitting an affidavit on above lines, all are advised to take further legal opinion from qualified legal professionals.
We, “the Web Host and the group of individuals –still fighting against DDA to get the allotment of a fully developed
and applied size plot” are only expressing an opinion and such opinion shall not be considered as legal advice by any
On 14.03.2012 Hon’ble HC had called for statement from DDA on the size reduction issue and the matter is listed for
hearing on 25.07.2012. However, without waiting for reply from DDA and also not considering our request for allotment of plots
only from already developed sectors, the Hon’ble High Court of Delhi gave speaking orders on 14.03.2012 to DDA to allot
plots before 13June2012.
DDA hurriedly conducted draw of lots on 12 June 2012 for 7,777 MIG (60 Sq M), 12,350 LIG (32 Sq M) & 4,402 JANTA (26
Sq M) undeveloped plots(in undeveloped sectors) and has allotted a plot number to each registrant as per priority list. Reduced
size (reduction in size of plot was an unilateral decision by DDA in 1999 which is illegal) plots have been allotted through
Still some MIG, LIG & JANTA waiting scheme registrants have not been allotted the plot numbers through this draw of
12.06.2012 and as per the media reports, these remaining registrants may be allotted the plot numbers in coming 3-4 months
We feel sorry for the legitimate waiting registrants, not covered through this draw. Three of our esteemed members who
are actively helping the fight against DDA are also in the list of registrants not allotted the plot numbers in this draw.
Our fight will go on, till all legitimate remaining scheme registrants are allotted plots
Please check the details of allotment against your priority number on DDA.org website.
All the remaining critical unresolved issues have been raised in the Supreme Court thru a SLP and date of hearing on the
case is 16.07.2012.
We hope the Hon’ble SC will direct DDA to allot plots only from developed sectors and also allot originally promised
size of plots. In such a situation DDA shall be asked to make fresh draw of lots.
As reported by media that the plots are likely to be given at the rates ranging from Rs. 16,000/- to 21,000/- per Square
Meter. However, issue of the right costing has already been raised in Delhi High Court and will be raised again in Supreme
Court along with a prayer to award suitable compensation for the inordinate delay in allotment of plots.
Incidentally DDA has admitted that ‘mandatory development’ does not exist for the plots in the pockets/ sectors
allotted through this draw of 12June2012 and will take some time to complete and this statement will be very useful in the
Supreme Court. They have already admitted in the High Court that ‘mandatory development’ will be completed up
to May - 2013. However, this target appears to be impossible to meet and hence, once again will lead to contempt of High Court
The legitimate waiting MIG registrants & LIG (within the priority number 24,492) & EWS (within the priority number
6590), who have not been allotted the plot number through draw of 12June2012, may mail their case details on firstname.lastname@example.org
update of 04.05.2012 & 09.05.2012.
In view of the past record of DDA of not only hoodwinking the scheme registrants for 31 years but also misleading the Hon’ble
Delhi High Court in past 3 years as well, it was essential to knock at the doors of Hon’ble Supreme Court.
A PIL has been filed with prayer to
1. Stay the operation of the impugned HC order.
2. Immediately stop all work by DDA targeting non-scheme related plans/projects on land acquired for the purpose
of Rohini Residential Scheme,1981.
3. Direct DDA to first develop and allot originally applied size fully developed plots to the waiting scheme registrants.
Date of hearing at Supreme Court is 16July2012.
However, pending hearing on the above said PIL, a new application is made at HC for disposal of “left over issues
” and a prayer of “allotment of applied size plot”.
The Hon’ble Delhi High Court has ordered DDA to file reply in 4 weeks.
Next date of Hearing at HC is fixed for 25 July2012
Having secured HC order for definite allotment of plots for all the remaining registrants of the scheme, now it is time
for Volunteers to come forward to help the team fighting crucial unclarified issues as expenses are mounting fighting at supreme
Court level(Till now, with the help of few volunteers, we have managed the case at High Court)
Persons willing to contribute may contact Mr. Rahul Gupta at email@example.com or Mr. S.Y.Narayanan at firstname.lastname@example.org . Thanks
Allowing DDA Affidavit dated 06.03.2012 to start the process of draw of lot for 21,360 plots immediately and thereafter
initiating the necessary development work on these plots which work DDA is planning to be complete by May 2013, once again
the bench of Hon’ble Acting Chief Justice at Delhi High Court has passed an interim order.
Through this order dated 14.03.2012, DDA must allot 21,360 plots within 3 months starting from 19th March, 2012 and complete
the required development work on these plots by May - 2013,
In view of numerous un-kept DDA promisses of past and also DDA disobedience of the earlier court orders, this latest commitment
of DDA also appears to be a farce.
Our other prayers
“Allotment of same size of plot as promised at the time of application”
“Allotment of plots from already developed Sectors in ROHINI which DDA has hidden away from 1981 Plot Scheme ”
“Providing suitable compensation for the suffering of past 31 years due to no fault of waiting registrants”,
the next date of hearing has been fixed for 02.05.2012.
Expert advice is being sought and accordingly the next move will be initiated.
Hon'ble High Court of Delhi passed an isolated order on DDA to begin allotment of plots immediately. Details shall be available
after receipt of approved copy. NDH for other prayers is fixed on 02nd May 2012.
Images of the media reports carried in some dailies are reproduced herebelow for information.
to inform all waiting registrants of the DDA-Rohini 1981 Plot scheme that the Writ case is still being heard in the High Court
of Delhi and the next date of hearing is 29th Feb 2012.
it is informed that the case is still being argued in the High Court and any rumours of
disposal or dimissal of the writ petition is purely a mischief played by anti social elements.
Wishing all members and their family a Happy and Prosperous New Year 2012. The next
date of hearing is fixed on 15February2012.
Update of 09Nov2011
Unexpecting our fresh written
statement further exposing DDA's omissions in the past and our concurrent filing of a Contempt Petition against DDA, Hon'ble
High Court of Delhi however, was kind enough to fix an early hearing on 14.12.2011.
Those who want to transfer his/ her Rohini Scheme registration in
the name of a family member,
In the unfortunate eventuality, if original registrant is no longer
alive and his/her wards desire to get the registration transferred in the name of a family member
May please contact Dy. Director (LSB), Rohini, DDA office at
INA, New Delhi
for completing the formalities.
Satellite Images of the various Sectors in ROhini are given below and large
areas of open free spaces in these Sectors can be seen from the images.
Sector-24 is more or less filled up and is not shown here
Sector-26 is almost filled up and is not shown here.
fast-tracking the hearing on the PIL cases as a consolation for the injured in the HC Delhi blast of 07th Sept 2011,
our case was listed on 17thSept 2011 and again on 23rd Sept2011 on which date DDA had claimed to have made some progress in
the Rohini area, which to us is not convincing.
Those registrants or their family members or friends, who are somewhat connected
with civil construction and have the knowledge of demarcation and development of land/ plot
and wish to help the cause of Rohini Residential scheme – 1981, may contact Rahul Gupta on his mobile no.
9811071782 (would prefer SMS) or e-mail ID email@example.com immediately. This help is required to counter the wrong submissions of DDA in Delhi High court.
demarcation work done on any land identified for residential row houses by any agency shall look as seen in the typical
picture shown below. Members are requested to make some survey in the Rohini area and find any such work taken-up as claimed
by DDA. Pls send pictures if any taken by you.
|TYPICAL VIEW OF DEMARCATION OF PLOTS (Not Rohini)
It is painfully informed that Sh.Gautama needs amputation of a leg. God bless him and family with strength to
go through this extreme situation.
Shri.Vipin Kumar Gautama continues to be in a serious condition and he has been transferred to AIIMS Trauma centre.
Shri. Tarun Vats Chaturvedi is also in for surgery. Let us all pray for their speedy recovery.
Sh.Rahul Gupta(Litigant in the pending PIL case) along with Sh.Vipin Kumar Gautama, Sh.Tarun Vats Chaturvedi, and Sh.Ashok
Arora were injured while waiting to get entry passes made for attending the hearing of our case with DDA at the Delhi High
Court on 07Sept2011.
Fortunately Sh.Arora escaped unhurt. However, Sh.Gautama got serious injuries and is undergoing treatment.
Let us all pray for his speedy recovery.
Our founder members Shri Rahul Gupta and Shri Vipin Kumar Gautam got injured in the Bomb blast at the Delhi High Court
on 07Sept2011 while waiting for their entry passes made for appearance in our case against DDA.
Let us all pray for their speedy recovery from the injuries.
It has come to the notice that people with vested interests are trying to mislead registrants with
rumors like “DDA is planning to allot the plots in Narela area”. Please do not pay any attention to such
statement filed by DDA as “status report”, on 18th May2011 was summarily rejected by the Hon’ble
Chief Justice and his companion Judge at Delhi High Court. The Hon’ble court observed that DDA’s
plea quoting “Stay put by Hon’ble Supreme Court on certain identified small portion of land in Rohini” as
inadequate excuse for not to develop land other than this portion for purpose of allotment in the present case. DDA literally
admitted that “Nothing has been done so far in the present case of Rohini residential Plot scheme 1981 as per their
commitment to HC on 16Dec2009”.
Now, this evasive “status report” drives us to move for contempt proceedings against DDA for not complying with the
High Court of Delhi order dated 16Dec2009 (as 20 months will be ending on 16Aug2011 by which DDA was to allot 16000
developed plots). Next date of hearing is 17Aug2011.
long as we are determined we are bound to get justice.
It is again reminded that registrants
are advised not to get trapped by property dealers.

Dealers will get active and may approach you registrants for sale of registration by soliciting through letters/ e-mails/

get our genuine legal claims. You all have waited for 30 years, and kindly have some more patience -Please do not sell
your registration to ‘Third Party’.
Update of 09March2011
Since even after 15 months of Court order, there was no sign for allotment of plots,
a supplementary Writ was filed by Mr. Rahul Gupta with Hon’ble Delhi High Court and an order has been passed by the
Hon’ble Delhi High Court on DDA to file an affidavit detailing the progress made so far.
DDA has to file the affidavit by 06.04.2011, detailing the progress and latest status in
response to the court order of 16.12.2009.
Next date of hearing has been fixed for 20.04.2011.
Update of Republic Day
Through reliable sources,
it has come to knowledge that Planning Department (Rohini) - DDA has submitted a layout to additional 4000 plots to Rohini
Scheme Registrants. With this 4000 figure, total 21000 plots have already been cleared by Planning Dept of DDA for allotment.
However, such plans have
no meaning, until the Engineering wing (Rohini) of DDA develop Infrastructure in these areas. We notice there is hardly
any sign at site on this front. Only after the development is over, Land Sales Branch (LSB) of DDA can make the
After the DDA's
promise in the Court on 16Dec2009, 13 months are already passed and it is unlikely that DDA can deliver 16000 developed
plots within next 7 months (balance time left out of the initial 20 months commitment to allot the said number of plots).
In this situation we shall
have to gear up the fight afresh in the Delhi High Court/ Supreme Court and volunteers are welcome to join ‘active
group’ and contribute to this urgent cause immediately.
