step towards facilitating the growing need of housing in Delhi, ...the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) is working on the Master Plan of L Zone. Located in South-West Delhi and spread across 22,840 hectare of land, the L Zone is expected to give an impetus to the slow and stagnant real estate market of the national capital. It is close to IGI Airport and is strategically positioned between Dwarka and Gurgaon.

Under the development plan, the authority has divided Delhi into 15 zones wherein ‘L’ Zone is the largest and boasts Najafgarh as the only census town in the zone. “At present the zones are open for buying land, wherein the housing societies and private developers are coming forth with their investment plans. Where majority have already bought land, many are still looking to obtaining the necessary approvals from the authority,” says Partho Kunar, director, Suhaskrit, a Delhi-based consultant firm.

Once the approvals are received, the land owners of L Zone will submit the land to DDA out of which the authority will take 40 per cent of the total land area for development of roads, drainage, sewerage and other civic amenities. Once developed, the developers/housing societies will be allowed to start their construction plans.
