DDA Master Plan 2021
Delhi has witnessed a huge gap in the demand and supply of housing units. When the MPD was reviewed in 2006, it came to light that only 3.5 lac residential dwelling units are being provided by DDA whereas the need is for 35 lac residential dwelling units. This has forced the people to live in unauthorized colonies which are lacking basic civic amenities and moreover are still dependent on agricultural land.
The Government has realized this slackness and notified a new plan known as MPD 2021 vide Gazette Notification No. SO 141 dated 07/02/2007. MPD 2021 envisages involvement of private sector in the development of land and provision of infrastructure services as an improvement over the current scheme of large-scale development and acquisition of land entrusted to Delhi Development Authority (DDA).
The MPD 2021 has divided the National Capital Territory of Delhi into 15 zones for convenience and administration of development. In order to cater the population growth and infrastructure requirement of the city, these zonal plans have been developed with the approval of the Government of India.
