“The DDA envisaged a policy in the name of Land Pooling Policy for ensuring availability of sufficient houses under planned development of Delhi. In anticipation of this scheme, various builders and promoters grabbed it as an opportunity to exploit the situation by showing rosy pictures to innocent buyers. They raised huge amounts from the buyers for advance bookings in the name of registration or allotments,” said O.P. Mishra, Joint CP EOW.

As per the report procured from the DDA, it has not issued any licence or approval to any of these societies. Also, no one is authorised to advertise, market, book or sell or invite persons to purchase any plot or flat in any project under the land pooling area without prior registration of the project under Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, 2016 (RERA).
