Chapter IV




Conduct of Demand Survey           


0401.               AFNHB normally conducts a demand survey prior to launching a new Scheme. The primary aim of the survey is to assess the number of personnel desirous of acquiring a DU in the station and hence, the viability of the proposed Scheme. This Demand Survey is undertaken through IG, K Broadcast, and  AFNHB Website: Personnel desirous of opting for the Scheme are required to apply on plain paper giving relevant service particulars, address, telephone/mobile number, email address and bank account particulars etc.  The applicant shall indicate clearly whether he/she has in the past been allotted a DU and if so, particulars of the same are to be furnished.  It is the responsibility of the applicant to intimate the Board if  there is a change in any of  the details furnished.  The amount indicated below shall be sent in the form of Demand Draft along with the response to the Demand Survey.


(i)         Officers:         (Rs 11,000/-). This    amount   includes Rs 1,000/- being non-refundable and non-adjustable administrative fees. If the demand survey applicant does not continue with the scheme, then Rs. 10,000/- shall be refunded. 


(ii)                Sailors/Airmen:          (Rs 6,000/-). This amount includes Rs 1,000/- being non-refundable and non-adjustable administrative fees. If the demand survey applicant   does  not continue with the scheme, then Rs. 5,000/- shall be refunded.




0402.               Once reasonable demand for a housing scheme in a particular station has been established, the scheme is launched subject to availability of suitable land. Demand Survey applicants would  be given preference for allotment and the scheme will be open to others only after all Demand Survey applicants desirous to register in the scheme have been offered a DU. An ‘IG’ and ‘K’ Broadcast will accordingly be issued.



Registration of Demand Survey Applicants


0403    Demand Survey Applicants (DSA) registering in the scheme, are to submit the application form placed at Appendix ‘A’ which can be down loaded from the AFNHB website  The form duly completed is to be forwarded  to the Director (Administration) AFNHB Race Course, New Delhi-110003, alongwith a Demand Draft payable to AFNHB at New Delhi as indicated below.   Incomplete application shall be rejected and shall not be considered for registration.  In  such cases the applicant shall  be informed accordingly and the application  returned alongwith the registration fee.  All information as demanded in the Application Form are to be provided. Amending the language in the Application Form shall result in rejection of the application. Further, it is the responsibility of the applicant to intimate the Board if there is a change in any of the details in the form.

Change Over from One Scheme to Another


0405.               Subject to the provision of this Para, allottees are permitted to change over from one scheme to another, only once prior to collection of possession letter. However, Cancellation charges shall  be deducted as per paras  0702 & 0703.  In case, there is a waiting list in the scheme, the transferee shall take his/her turn at the end of the waiting list. Registrants seeking transfer from the waiting list of any scheme shall not be levied cancellation charges. Changeover is however not the right of the registrant. Changeover from an under subscribed scheme to fully subscribed scheme shall not be permitted. However, change from an under subscribed scheme to another under subscribed scheme shall be permitted at the discretion of the Board. Equalisation  charges as per para 0608 would be applicable in this case.   Besides, in all cases Administrative Charges shall be deducted.


Transfer from One Category of Dwelling Unit to Another


0406.               In normal circumstances, a registrant shall be permitted to seek change from one type to another within the same category. An allottee would be allowed to continue as confirmed allottee in one type whilst simultaneously remain on the waiting list of other type in a particular scheme. Registrants seeking change to higher type of DU shall pay Equalisation Charges on the differential amounts from the date(s) the installment(s) had become due to be paid by the original registrants.  Only differential cost will be adjusted for those allottees who seek transfer to a lower type. The allottee shall not be given benefit of any Equalisation Charges/Delayed Payment charges paid till that time.


Incomplete Forms / Appendices


0407.               Incomplete Forms / Appendices are liable to be rejected.  Allottee / registrants who provide  incomplete or wrong informations while filling  up the forms shall be liable for rejection / cancellation of the allotment / registration at any stage, whatsoever.  He will also be liable to face criminal proceedings in case of any such default.





Chapter V




Method of Allotment


0501.               In case the number of applicants exceeds the number of DUs planned, the  allocation  shall  be  done  by  a draw of lots on the basis of priority given at  Para 0302.   In addition, a waitlist of a minimum of 10% of the planned DU in  each type of dwelling unit, as per draw shall be maintained. If waitlisted applicants, continues paying installments of the scheme on due date and are subsequently   allotted a DU, they shall be treated at par with original allottees and shall not be charged Equalization Charges, applicable to the new entrants. However, if they are not allotted a DU, the amount paid by the waitlisted applicants shall be refunded with simple interest @ 1% less than the prevailing savings account interest rate.


Allotment Letter


0502.       After the allocation of  Dwelling Units   in a Scheme has been finalised, the Board shall issue allotment letters and dispatch them to the recorded address of the allottees by Registered Post / Speed Post / Courier. The Allotment Letter will not indicate details of Flat/Block numbers.   The allotment of specific flats  shall  be  decided by draw of lots at a later date.  Allotment Letters shall indicate tentative basic cost of the DU  along with dates of payment of installment and other important Terms & Conditions. The registrants shall acknowledge the  receipt of Allotment Letter in the prescribed format  supplied with allotment letter within 45 days from the date of issue of this letter, after which it shall be deemed to have been received and accepted by the allottee.


0503.               No additional ‘ink-signed copy’ of the Allotment Letter and Possession Letter shall be issued by AFNHB.  In case of loss of the original Allotment/Possession letter, a 'Certified True Copy' will be issued on submission of the original FIR from the Police,  depending upon the circumstances of the case.


Joint Registration


0504.               Registrant of a scheme may nominate the spouse, or son / daughter or   parent  or any other close relation at the discretion of the Board as Joint Registrants.  A maximum of two such Joint Registrants can be nominated.   This provision has been made to widen the scope of housing loan but the Board  will  interact only with the original allottee.




0505.               The Registrant/Allottee may nominate a person as  his nominee in Para 10 of the application form placed at Appendix A and affidavit at Appendix B.  The person so nominated shall on the demise of the Registrant / Allottee and Joint Registrant / Allottee,  if any, take over all rights and liabilities of the deceased Registrant / Allottee and Joint Registrant / Allottee (if any).


Allotment of Specific Dwelling Units


0506.               Specific DUs would be allotted to those who have paid the required installments and cleared all dues.   Allotment of specific DU shall be made by draw of lots by an Allotment Committee comprising Naval and Air Force officers who are not Registrants or Allottees of the Scheme and the staff of AFNHB.  The date of draw of DU  shall be announced at least a month in advance and all allottees are welcome to witness the same. The Board shall  not entertain any request for a change of DU allotted through the draw of lots. Request for preferential allotment of a specific DU shall be entertained only in exceptional cases on medical grounds and would need to be approved by the Board of Management (BOM). In case of controversy, decision of the DG, AFNHB shall be final.


Mutual Exchange of Units


0507.               Mutual exchange of DUs or parking spaces would be permitted within the Scheme on application from the concerned allottees (Appendix F).  It may be noted that mutual exchange would only be possible prior taking over the physical possession of the DU and parking space.  Mutual exchange after possession may be permitted on merit.  Such transfer would, however, be subject to the rules regarding Transfer / Sale of DUs at Chapter VIII and entail payment of relevant fees, including AFNHB Transfer of DU Charges.


0508.                At the time of applying for mutual exchange, both Allottees should have cleared all dues for original allotted DU with interest on delayed payment, if any.  Any allottee desiring change to a higher category  shall not be charged interest on differential amount nor the Board shall pay any interest to the one opting for a lower category. The exchange will be entirely  an arrangement between the two consenting allottees.


Handing Over


0509.               The DUs shall be offered on "as-is-where-is" basis.  An Allottee shall be handed over the physical possession of his DU only after the allottee completes the following:
