If you look at the year 1960s, the private sector wasn’t much strong in terms of economy and hence was unable to take the responsibility of urbanization and housing. It was therefore the government to take up such charges but again in 1980s, the private sector gained power and came back offering people with both residential and commercial projects designed as per the state of the art technology. As of today, the private sector holds a good market position and has given the real estate market a new shape. With the growing number of people migrating to Delhi, the price of land to has gone up. To ensure proper residential facility to all the residents, the Land Pooling Policy was created by the Ministry of Urban Development.

The land acquisition bill, 1984 was eventually kept at rest and the Land Pooling Policy was proposed keeping in concern the land acquisition scenario in AP, Haryana Noida and West Bengal. DDA’s sole aim at present is directed towards urbanizing the rural areas i.e. from zone K-I, L, M, N, P-I and P-II and thereby leading to the creation of some more Delhi Smart cities.
