The DDA has decided to allow the conversion of property from leasehold to freehold on the basis of registered agreement to sell and general power of attorney, which was earlier suspended by a Supreme Court judgement.
"The Competent Authority in Delhi Development Authority (DDA) after taking the opinion of Solicitor General, has decided to allow such conversions subject to producing documents authenticating that the transaction is genuine," the DDA said in a statement.
The conversion had been suspended in the wake of a Supreme Court judgement in a case in 2011, it said.
The genuineness would be verified at the time of processing of conversion application and subject to production of related documents such as agreement to sell registered with sub-registrar of Delhi.
On verification of these documents the lease administrating agencies of DDA i.e. Land Disposal Wing and Housing Wing would process the conversion applications subject to completion of all other codal formalities as laid in conversion brochure, the urban housing body said.
