HUDA Scheme: Residential Plots in Faridabad

huda logo1 Haryana Urban Development Authority has launched a scheme to allot freehold residential plots in Faridabad and other areas like Sonipat, Rohtak, Bahadurgarh, Ambala, Jind, Hisar and Palwal.

Though the scheme is launched for various urban areas, the center of attraction is the allotment of 1,969 plots of various sizes in Faridabad.

Salient Features of the Scheme

  • Faridabad is an integral part of the NCR region and has good connectivity and proximity to Delhi. Though the region has been sluggish as compared to other NCR regions like Gurgaon is terms of appreciation in real estate prices, it does offer ample scope as there are talks of modernization of Mathura Road and work on Badarpur flyover as well as access to Metro in near future will provide facelift to the area.
  • Crime Rate in Faridabad is far less as compared to other popular regions in terms of real estate development like Noida and Ghaziabad.
  • The Rates offered in HUDA Scheme are quite competitive and offer even a good long term investment opportunity for those who want to invest in real estate to create wealth.
  • HUDA Scheme offers facility of payment in Installments. 10% Payable at application, 15% within one month of allotment and balance in Six equal Annual Installments.
  • Interest @5.5% per annum on the amount of earnest money for period beyond six months of closing date of scheme if the draw is not held and earnest money not refunded within this period.
  • Allotment will be made through draw of lots.
  • Any Individual can apply under the scheme provided he has not been allotted a plot of land directly by HUDA in the concerned Area. If you want to apply under reserved category, you must be a domicile of Haryana.

Concerns on the Scheme

  • You earnest money could be stuck with HUDA for as long as Six months without interest and thereafter @ 5.5% p.a. interest.
  • Development on Delhi-Mathura Highway and completion of Badarpur Flyover/ Access to metro is the key to next phase of price appreciation in the region and any delay on this front can take the sheen away for the investors.
  • Faridabad is grappling with pollution like other NCR regions. All the areas of the Faridabad including residential areas, industrial areas and silence zone are in the grip of air pollution. A part of it can be blamed to its initial planning as an Industrial township. Even the quality of water is a area of concern as a recent study has found water levels to be highly polluted and unfit for drinking.
