Most of the flats are in Rohini, Dwarka, Narela, Vasant Kunj, Jasola, Pitampura and Paschim Vihar. Officials said all the flats have been constructed using environment-friendly technologies. Some 10,000 unoccupied flats are from the DDA's 2014 housing scheme; 2,000 flats have been lying vacant.
"We are happy to launch the new scheme. We have printed adequate number of application forms. There are various logistical constraints involved in launching a scheme of this magnitude, so we wanted to ensure that everything was in order before going public," a senior DDA official said.
The DDA had set mid-June as the target date for the launch of the scheme, which was earlier scheduled to be announced by February.
