Commonwealth Games cost reduced
DDA has given a substantial concession in the price of flats built in Commonwealth Games.

The special thing is that all these flats will be given at concessional rates ranging from 10 to 40 percent. 40% discount on construction cost will be made on 6,536 flats built in Pocket 1A, 1B, and 1C, Narela. Whereas on Pocket G7 / G8, 960 flats built in Sector A, this discount will be 10 percent.
