The Lt. Governor of Delhi, His Excellency Shri Anil Baijal has paved the way for proper implementation of the long-pending land pooling policy in the national capital by notifying 89 rural villages as urban areas. The most talked about land pooling policy, which is all set to blow up the urban limits of the capital, was notified by the ministry of urban development (MoUD) in the month of September 2013, while the regulations for proper operationalisation of the policy were given the nod in May 2015 by the ministry.

However, the LLP was stuck over a few public welfare demands by the government of Delhi on getting 10% of the pooled land to develop hospitals, schools, etc.

The DDA is all set develop public utility infrastructure like roads and hospitals on part of the pooled land and give back a substantial part or portion of the plot to the owner. The returned portion of that piece of land will have its value raised due to the development of infrastructure nearby.

A Few Salient Highlights of LLP

  • LPP brings farmers a unique opportunity to bring forth with small parcels of land and get them assembled and arranged together for the new redevelopment purpose.
  • Once that particular piece of land is developed, around 48-60% of the land is given back to the original owner.
  • The entire national capital has been divided into 15 zones, out of which 6 zones come under LPP and the greatest one is L-Zone, Dwarka in which more than 4-5 lakh housing units are supposed to be developed.

LPP, when implemented properly can generate around 20,000-25,000 hectares of high utility land. The LLP has the potential of reconstructing and redeveloping low residential zones and actualizing the vision of MPD-2021.


The Incredible Advantages of LPP at a Glance:

  • The LLP will entirely put a full stop to the land acquisition policy while further preventing the rise in land prices.
  • In the past, land acquisition policy did not have any transparency and farmers were left with unfair compensation for their land.
  • The LLP will strengthen and empower the public-private relationship while reducing the role of DDA to that of a facilitator only.
  • The LLP will accelerate and speed up the mission of turning Delhi into a smart city while redeveloping these villages as per the standards of MOD-2021.
  • The LLP will also bring a boom in the employment opportunities in the real estate sector. As the construction work goes up, need for workers increases.

After the nod to the land pooling policy for the 89 villages, the Delhi government will not be in need to purchase land from the Delhi Development Authority for developing facilities like stadiums, industrial areas, electrical sub-stations, old-age homes, hostels, schools, etc. The LPP principally aims at getting individuals or a group of agriculture land-owners – residing in urban villages on national capital’s periphery – to pool their land and render it to the DDA.
