DDA Arranging 5000 flats for CWG visitors in S Delhi

The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) is arranging over 5,000 flats in South Delhi for the accommodation of tourists and visitors during the Commonwealth Games 2010.

The flats are being readied in Vasant Kunj and Jasola to partly offset the shortage of accommodation for over 50,000 guests during the sporting extravaganza. “We are readying these flats to deal with the shortfall of accommodation during the Commonwealth Games,” a senior DDA official said.

The official said refurbishment of these flats has already started and it will be completed soon.

He said after DDA finishes the construction activities, Indian Tourism Development Corporation (ITDC) will furnish the flats as per standard of three-star hotels. Although Games Organizing Committee maintains that there would be no shortage of rooms, still accommodation remains a major area of concern.
