NEW DELHI: The Delhi government has decided to allot houses under
Rajiv Ratan Awas Yojna to SC and ST slum dwellers, at nominal prices.

The government on Monday decided to waive its share of Rs 60,000 for
each dwelling unit in the housing scheme if an SC or ST family gets a
flat built under Rajiv Ratan Awas Yojna . "The Delhi SC and ST
Commission will pay the amount on behalf of the families from these
two categories. The Central government and the land owning agency will
also make their contribution," said chief minister Sheila Dikshit,
adding the SC and ST families will get the flats almost for free.

Dikshit said the government will start the allotment process of nearly
5,000 low-cost flats by next month. Allotment of around 7,000 flats
will begin in December. The government had earlier decided to begin
the process of relocation of 33 slums by allocating low-cost houses to
eligible families as construction of 9,660 flats has been completed
and another 5,168 are being constructed. Officials said the
approximate cost of each flat would be Rs 3.34 lakh out of which the
Centre's contribution would be is Rs 1.19 lakh and the contribution of
the land owning agency would be Rs 93,000.
