Proposed Modifications in the Master Plan for Delhi 2021: Suggestions/Objections

Commissioner cum Secretary,  
DDA, B Block, Vikas Sadan, New Delhi 110023

Subject:  Public notice in various newspapers for Suggestions/Objections with respect to the proposed Modifications in the Master Plan for Delhi 2021.

Dear Sir,

We are not against the Trading community of Delhi & we too expect some relief for them at the earliest possible so that a permanent solution could stop the tensions & troubles of Sealing & Conversion charges in our City.


we just could not understand the proposed modifications as mentioned in your Advertisement, as below:


15.12.3(vii): Commercial activity in the basement on such STREETS shall be permitted, subject to…..

Modified into

Commercial activity in the basement on such STREETS/AREAS shall be permitted, subject to…

What does it mean?

Does it mean that now onwards, after the proposed modifications, the commercial activities will be allowed in the entire areas instead of any specific streets?

Does it mean that these modifications will enhance the commercialization, even to the inner core of localities?

Does it mean that now onwards, the residents will have to face all kind of commercial activities, Loading, Unloading, Traffic jams, Parking issues, in the entire areas, instead of any specific streets?

If yes, do you have the infrastructure for that? In the present scenario, our infrastructure is not compatible even with the existing status of commercialization of Delhi. How can you go for the enhancement of commercialization without any suitable & compatible support from the infrastructure?


5.6.3: Additional FAR shall be permitted on payment of additional FAR charges, …..

What does it mean?

Does it mean, that in case Authorities get more & more money, they won’t have any objections to the FAR?


5.6.6: In case, there is no parking facility, available in the vicinity, concerned local body MAY PREPARE appropriate model …..

What does it mean?


In Case there is no Parking Facility?

But where is the Parking Facility in Delhi? 

Even on the roads, where Local bodies are charging Conversion plus One-time parking charges, there is no space for parking anywhere?

Can't they pre-decide such things at least for the Critical areas, to avoid the chaos? 


And lastly, a time of only 3 days have been given, including a Saturday & a Sunday. We don’t have the time to go through the entire set of documents & we are responding to what is visible in your advertisement.

But, even if we Courier or Speed post on Monday, there is no scope that Authorities will get our suggestions/objections in the notified 3 days. In such a case what is the use of asking such suggestions & objections?

They have not given any Email ID to expedite the matter.

Hope that we will be invited to have our say before the proposed modifications are finalized.
