As per the direction of the Delhi High Court, Delhi Development Authority (DDA) will probe against the illegal deals of plots in the city.
Delhi Development Authority (DDA) is asked by the Delhi High Court to probe into the land deals in the city. After hearing the PIL filed by Mr. Rajesh Kumar, a Delhi –native, HC ordered the DDA to probe into the matter seriously.
In a PIL, Mr. Rajesh Kumar alleged that the allottees are going against the norms of the Delhi government in matters related to the land dealings. He informed the court that the allotted land is sold and purchased without considering the existing laws and norms of the city.
As per the law the allottees are not supposed to hand over the allotted land or plots to anyone for a specific period of time. Moreover the allottees are to gain consent of the DDA (Delhi Development Authority) prior to the sale and purchase of any land.
However Mr. Kumar stated that the land dealings are done without the knowledge of the Development Authority. Neither the seller nor the buyer is gaining the NOC from the DDA for the purpose of selling the residential plots allotted to each of them.
The HC Bench; headed by Chief Justice D Murugesan, consisted Justice V K Jain. The bench asked DDA to investigate into the matter and submit the report soon. However the petitioner had demanded CBI probe into the case.
The residential plots are allotted under large-scale development scheme. However these plots are illegally bought and sold without acquiring the permission of DDA.
The petitioner informed that the information is authentic and reliable as it was given to him by DDA in its reply to an RTI enquiry. Stating the authenticity and the loss of DDA in this regard, the petitioner demanded CBI probe into the matter. DDA is expected to lose crores of rupees through the illegal land dealings in the city.
