PM UDAY Yojana: Pradhan Mantri UDAY Yojana Scheme: All you need to know

[] People staying in illegal colonies in Delhi can now apply for their property registry through the PM UDAY scheme

For people staying in unauthorised colonies of Delhi, regularisation has been a far-fetched dream. Property owners, who do not have registration papers, find it difficult to sell or mortgage their asset. To help such people, the central government has come out with the Pradhan Mantri Unauthorised Colonies in Delhi Awas Adhikar Yojana (PM-UDAY).

What is PM UDAY Scheme?

The Pradhan Mantri UDAY Yojana is a central scheme to authorise the illegal colonies of national capital Delhi.

Note that more than 40 lakh people in Delhi live in unauthorised colonies, which are located on private or public land. Properties in these illegal colonies, whether in the form of plots of land or built-up space, are generally held through Will, or general power of attorney (GPA), or agreement to sell, or payment and possession of documents.

To solve this problem, the central government formed a committee, to recommend the process for recognising ownership or mortgage/ transfer rights to the residents of these 1,731 illegal colonies in Delhi. Also, the National Capital Territory of Delhi (Recognition of Property Rights of Residents in Unauthorized Colonies) Act, 2019, was enacted by the parliament, to allow registration of properties in these colonies.

The central government will prepare a blueprint for developing the unauthorised colonies, through the Delhi Development Authority (DDA). The blueprint for the development of the colonies, drawn by the DDA, will be completed only through the fixed limit based on the satellite images of 2015. Further, the Authority has included provisions regarding the development of these colonies under the Master Plan of Delhi 2041. Preparation of development control norms for the unauthorised colonies in the city is also underway, for the planned development of existing colonies.

The options prepared as per DDA approved norms, include important factors such as resettlement planning or meeting minimum planning requirements of unauthorised colonies by promoting amalgamation of plots and ensuring the participation of the original owners, residents of the land, with prescribed parameters. Besides, the FAR will be raised from 20 to level one and 50 in large plots in case of large floor area ratio for regularisation, regeneration scheme for existing unauthorised colonies. As compared to the previous provisions made by the DDA, more focus has been laid on increase in Floor Area Ratio (FAR), infrastructure development, public space and road width.


PM UDAY Yojana online application

Under the PM UDAY Yojana, people from unauthorised colonies can apply for ownership rights through the PM UDAY portal. If approved, the applicant will get the registry papers by paying a nominal fee. The entire process is being implemented under the Delhi Development Authority (DDA).

On August 4, 2021, the minister of state for housing and urban affairs, Kaushal Kishore, informed in the Rajya Sabha that 7,576 conveyance deeds and authorisation slips had been issued as per the scheme, for residents living in the non-developed unauthorised colonies in Delhi.

PM UDAY: Latest update

Update on October 19, 2021

The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) has revived work on GIS mapping of all vacant land parcels. The survey, which is a part of the Authority’s project to have online records of its lands and protect them from encroachment, will be completed by 2022. It had sought the help of the Regional Remote Sensing Centre (RRSC), a part of the National Remote Sensing Centre (a division of the Indian Space Research Organisation) in 2018. Besides keeping a check on encroachments, the images will also prove useful in planning future developments across the city, especially in the implementation of schemes like land pooling and PM UDAY.

Update on September 1, 2021

Under the PM-UDAY scheme, while the DDA website got around 4,25,033 registrations asking for ownership rights, only around 78,000 have filled the applications. Further, the conveyance deeds along with authorisation slips stands at around 8,000. According to the DDA, more than eight lakh households are eligible for ownership rights under the PM-UDAY scheme. The reason for low applications can be attributed to confusion, with most people of the impression that registration is similar to getting ownership rights. They are not aware that the applications will be further scrutinised and then, ownership will be given.

Update on July 21, 2021

According to union minister Hardeep Singh Puri, more than 7,300 families have been given ownership rights of their properties in unauthorised colonies, while over four lakh families have registered for the Delhi Awas Adhikar Yojana under PM-UDAY. Meanwhile, the DDA has also released a video, to help the applicants navigate the entire process. Under the scheme, the DDA will scrutinise documents and will issue conveyance deeds for government lands and authorisation slips for private lands, only for residential purposes.

Update on June 25, 2021

In a bid to expedite the process of regularising the unauthorised colonies and to reach out to the property owners in these areas, the DDA has now roped-in private agencies, to reach out to possible beneficiaries and to help them to submit their applications. These private agencies will create facilitation centres (static or mobile) or provide door-to-door services, to help applicants to register and upload the required documents on the portal that has been specially developed for conferring property rights in unauthorised colonies. The DDA has empanelled seven firms to assist people in the process. These private agencies will begin the drive in 250 colonies, starting July 1, 2021.

Update on March 9, 2021

The DDA has announced that the unauthorised colonies will now be able to form group housing societies and has relaxed the norms in its master plan, with an eye on developing these colonies.

According to the DDA vice-chairman Anurag Jain, people will be able to get group housing schemes sanctioned for a minimum plot area of 2,000 sq metres (instead of 3,000 sq metres, as per the master plan), provided the plot has access from a 12-metre-wide road (instead of 18 metres under the master plan). The proposal has been put up on the DDA’s website, for suggestions and objections from the public.

Meanwhile, the DDA is planning to adopt a new strategy, to expedite the process of issuing conveyance deeds to the residents of 1,731 unauthorised colonies in Delhi, under the PM-UDAY scheme. So far, over 3.5 lakh property owners have registered with the Authority, out of which 54,139 applicants have submitted the necessary documents, to get ownership rights of their properties. However, less than 10% of successful applicants have got their property papers so far.

Till January 22, 2021, the DDA had issued over 1,700 conveyance deeds and 1,900 authorisation slips, which are the final documents required for the registration of the property with the Delhi government.

PM UDAY helpdesk

The DDA has facilitated 28 helpdesks, to guide the applicants and to provide assistance to applicants who are unable to submit their applications on the DDA’s portal. The applicants can visit these helpdesks for any information or assistance to submit their application.
