New Delhi, Nov 4: The draw of the eagerly-awaited DDA Housing Scheme 2014 would be announced on Monday, Nov 10.

Earlier, the tentative date to declare the results of the Delhi Development Authority's much-awaited scheme was scheduled on Wednesday, Nov 5.

The reason behind the delay is said to be the slow pace of the uploading of the data of application forms on the DDA 's official website.

However, the DDA Vice Chairman Balvinder Kumar blamed the empanelled banks for delaying the process.

As per a report published in Hindustan Times, Kumar said that the show cause notices have been issued to some banks to cause the delay in uploading the data of the applicants.

Once the data is uploaded, the applicants will be able to rectify mistakes and again verify their details, however, they won't be able to change the selection of flats.

On Sunday, Oct 26, the DDA had announced that the eagerly-awaited draw of lots can be seen online as the housing authority has decided to webcast the entire event on YouTube.

The webcast would be available for "unlimited" number of online users through a YouTube channel.

DDA's flagship scheme that began on Sept 1, had offered over 25,000 flats across various categories, ranging from Rs 7 lakh to Rs 1.2 crore.

Earlier, the last day of the scheme was Oct 9, but due to 15 days of shraadh period, it was extended to Oct 15 and the DDA received over 8.5 lakh applications.

Gearing up for the draw, the DDA has planned to dedicate a server to deal with the anticipated "rush of online traffic" on its official website.

Meanwhile, the procedure for the draw has also been uploaded on the website and applicants can check the status of their application online.
