New Delhi, Nov 14: The wait for the lucky draw of Delhi Development Authority's (DDA) housing scheme 2014 is turning out to be an endless one.

According to Hindustan Times report, the housing authority this time too, is not going to meet its final deadline and has decided not to hold draw on November 14 which was set final date two days back.

The housing authority says it is facing technical glitches due to which it is not able to carry out the lucky draw.
The draw which was initially scheduled for November 5, was postponed to November 10 and then to November 12. Two days back, the DDA set the final deadline of Nov 14, but now, this time too, it is not going to meet the latest one. This time, the DDA has not set any further deadline for the draw.

The housing authority has been carrying out trial runs of the draw since Monday at its headquarter Vikas Sadan, but facing technical problems.

"The trial runs are going on and are taking a lot of time because there is a lot of data to be processed. We have been facing some technical glitches too," DDA Vice Chairman Balvinder Kumar was quoted as saying in the report.
The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) for the first time has planned to webcast the entire event live on YouTube, and so the run serves as a means to test everything in working conditions so as to avoid any glitches later on.

The webcast would be available for "unlimited" number of online users through the YouTube channel. The scheme, which was launched on September 1 had seen a massive response both online and offline, leading to DDA's website getting crashed within few hours on the opening day itself.

The last date for the scheme was October 9 but the date was extended till October 15 later. Till then 7.5 lakh applications were received. The number rose to 8.5 lakh a few days later as applications from far-flung bank branches reached the DDA headquarters (New Delhi) late.
