Land Pooling Policy

The genesis of the implementation of the Land Pooling Policy by the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) lies in the fact that land acquisition and planned development has not kept pace with the increasing demands of housing in the Delhi during the last decade. Moreover, the process of land acquisition is increasingly getting complex and challenging in view of the enactment of the new Land Acquisition Bill by the Government in 2013. Therefore, the Government has adopted the Land Pooling Policy in Delhi as it has been successfully implemented in many other States like Gujarat, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Chhatisgarh wherein the New Raipur is being developed currently by adopting this Policy and after creation of the new State of Telangana, Government of Andhra Pradesh has decided to adopt the same policy for development of its new Capital City. This all is happening as the Land Pooling Policy provides equal footings to both land owners/farmers and the Government/Developers in terms of benefit available to both parties leading to a win-win situation for planned development of a city on Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode. Therefore, the DDA has decided to meet the urbanization challenge to find new opportunities in Delhi for accommodating housing needs of ever growing population of the National Capital Territory. Accordingly, the Government has notified implementation of the Land Pooling Policy in Delhi on 26 May, 2015.

Guiding Principles of the Land Pooling Policy:

  • Govt./DDA to act as a facilitator with minimum intervention to facilitate and speed up integrated planned development.
  • A land owner, or a group of land owners (who have grouped together of their own volition/will for this purpose) or a developer, herein referred to as the “Developer Entity” (DE), shall be permitted to pool land for unified planning, servicing and subdivision/share of the land for development as per prescribed norms and guidelines.
  • Each landowner to get an equitable return irrespective of land uses assigned to their land in the Zonal Development Plan with minimum displacement.
  • To ensure speedy development of Master Plan Roads and the essential Physical & Social Infrastructure and Recreational areas.
  • To ensure inclusive development by adequate provision of EWS and other housing as per Shelter Policy of the Master Plan.
