In a relief to subsequent house buyers, the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) has revealed in a case before the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) that it would provide certified copies of original documents to them.

A petition was forwarded to the NHRC by a former Parliamentarian Avinash Rai Khanna. The petitioner Dr Narmadeshwar Prasad had alleged that the DDA had changed its rules and was not issuing certifying copies of original documents to subsequent buyers of DDA residential and commercial flats.

The DDA has been allotting residential and commercial flats for the last four decades through the Self Financing Scheme and those allotted flats in their name by the DDA are called original allottees.

It also issues Allotment-cum-Demand letter and possession letter to the orginal allottees, of which one set of original documents are kept by the authority for posterity.

The petitioner said, “When the original allottees sell flats to prospective buyers and sale deed, registration of flats with registrar is completed, the subsequent buyer becomes the legal owner of the house.”

“However, sometimes these original documents are not passed on to the subsequent buyers or are misplaced due to various reasons. In this scenario, the DDA had provided a provision, wherein the legal flat owner can apply for the certified copies of the original documents,” Prasad said.

Prasad said as per a 2018 circular, the DDA had stopped the process of issuing these copies to the subsequent buyers. However, after the intervention of the NHRC, the DDA has reversed its order in a 2022 circular and has started issuing certified copies to subsequent buyers.
