3500 Games flats ready for sale by year end

For a city severely short on housing units, there will be good news by the year-end. Around 3,500 flats being built in Vasant Kunj and Jasola for the Commonwealth Games are close to completion and will be in the market later this year. This is in addition to the existing stock of 15,000 flats to be ready in 2010, officials said.

‘‘The flats are going to be part of the stock that will be disposed of by DDA, though the mode of disposal hasn’t been decided yet,’’ said DDA spokesperson Neemo Dhar.

Officials said the flats, which fall under various categories including low, medium and high income groups, are expected to be ready by March-April this year.
