Ever since its inception in 1957, Delhi Development Authority has pioneered the
process of development in the city. A Master Plan was formulated by DDA in 1962,
which ensured a balanced development of Delhi by creating new residential extension
areas which were self-contained and provided a healthy and secure environment. The
plan was revised in 1982 and now DDA is all set to meet the challenge of accommodating
the needs of the projected population of 128 lakhs by the end of this decade with
its comprehensive Master Plan for Delhi 2001.
