Under secretary in the Home ministry and current president of CSSOS, Mr. Neh Srivastava has held many important portfolios like Commerce and Textile, Prasar Bharti and as DG of Foreign trade under the govt. of India.
For over 20 years, he has given valuable contribution to policy making in the field of public demand, policy formulation and implementation.
According to him, purchasing a house in Delhi had become a distant dream owing to high land cost and unavailability of land with DDA for allotment to Group Housing Societies as had been done earlier in Patparganj, Rohini and Dwarka around the1980s. The opportunity has now come by way of DDA’s Land Pooling Policy (LPP) under Delhi Master Plan, 2021 to de-congest the National Capital Region and facilitate it with all modern amenities on the concept of “Smart Cities”. As per the Policy, a Society/ Developer should have minimum 5 acres of agricultural land for submission to DDA, who will develop the whole area and return the residential land equivalent to 60% of their land.
Central Secretariat Services Officers Society (CSSOS) is a symbol of service, unity and epitome of solidarity. This long association of the CSS fraternity has now taken a formal and legal shape when the officers decided not only to live together in proximity and take forward the CSS legacy but also to provide high-quality dwellings with competitive prices to others. This culmination has resulted in the formation of a housing society christened as CSSOS.
The Vision of CSSOS is to provide high-quality affordable dwelling units with green technology for living in a secure and clean environment. Since the Society has been formed by Group of ofﬁcers of the Central Government Ministries with the majority of members from CSS including IASs/ IPSs/ IRss, the society envisions a close cohesive ambiance with a view to foster brotherhood and fraternity among all the members. Central Secretariat Services Ofﬁcers Society (CSSOS) is a society of CSS ofﬁcers for CSS Ofﬁcers of Central Govt. along with ofﬁcers from State Govt., PSU, Banks, Financial, Academic Institutions and selected professionals, with an aim to provide not only an (i) affordable housing but also an elite neighborhood ; (ii) Ofﬁcers’ Clubs all over India; and (iii) Quality education through its Schools, speciﬁcally for the ofﬁcers/ families/ relatives of Central/ State Government ofﬁcers/ ofﬁcials, Public Sector and Bank employees.
