The time has arrived where we no longer have to feel envious of the amazing farm houses or country homes that UK and US have. Our own Delhi is coming up with revised plans for farm houses or now called as LDRA (Low Density Residential Area). The notification for this plan came up in June 2013 but in the recent months, it has started to pick up popularity due to massive curiosity around Land Pooling Policy (LPP). The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) has brought both LDRA and LPP in Delhi for a better housing opportunities to the people. The changes made are included in the Master Plan Delhi (MPD) 2021.
According to the notification passed by the government, there are a couple of reasons why farm houses have been renamed as LDRA. First of all, in the urban extension of Delhi, the farm houses were made in those areas where ground water have been depleted so much so that high density population may not be feasible. Also, for environmental factors, these areas do not support high density of people as there might be heavy load on civic infrastructure such as water supply, roads, sewage lines, parking etc.
