Further, the sector may also not be developed up to its optimum level due to vacant area and will not be helpful in achieving the prescribed density in the development plan.

In future, all colonies will be directed to integrate 70 per cent receipts accounts created under Section 4 (2)(1)(D) of the Real Estate (Regulation and Development Act, 2016.

  • Such 10 per cent of the total receipts from each payment made by an allottee, which is received by the Department shall  get automatically credited, on the date of receipt in government treasury, against EDC dues of the concerned licence of the coloniser.  Such 10 per cent deduction shall continue to operate till the total EDC dues get recovered from the colonizer against the said licence.
  • The implementation of such mechanism shall, however, have no bearing on the EDC installment schedule conveyed to the colonizer. The colonizer shall continue to supplement such automatic EDC deductions with payments from its own funds to ensure that the EDC installments that are due for payment get paid as per the prescribed schedule.
