The modalities of the scheme had to be decided in a meeting scheduled for September 23. A source said that the meeting, which was supposed to be held between DDA officials and lieutenant governor, was postponed to October 10 due to a bureaucratic reshuffle.

The then vice-chairman Arun Goel was transferred and IAS officer Udai Pratap Singh was appointed in his place.

“Some important time was lost due to the bureaucratic reshuffle and decisions on important matters are still to be taken. Even if DDA speeds up the process, it would not be able to rollout the scheme before December-end,” the official added.
