DDA scheme brings home prices down.

DDA housing scheme is has come a boon for aspiring home buyers as it has forced even small developers in the National Capital Region (NCR) to dole out hefty discounts and freebies like cars, LCD TVs and international holiday packages to woo buyers. The DDA housing scheme 2010 has a total of 18,235 flats on offer, right from one-bedroom- hall-kitchen (BHK) to four-BHK.
