The office of the UT Deputy Commissioner has moved a complaint to the police against the president of a housing society for allotting a house out of turn.
The issue pertains to the Swati Co-operative Housing Society in Sector 49. As per the complaint,the original allottee of the society was expelled and in his place the flat was allotted to someone else. Action has been sought against the management.
As per an official of the office of Registrar of Co-operative Societies,a member of the housing society in question was expelled. In his place,someone else was allotted the house. According to the rules,however,substitution is not allowed. Officials state that while the original allottee had paid some amount of money for the house,the complete amount was not paid. The then members of the management allegedly allotted the flat to someone else.
Officials state that with the cost of housing in the city witnessing a rise,several complaints have come to their notice about people who had been expelled from societies or had earlier withdrawn their names claiming the houses since these were built many years ago at a nominal cost.
The current president of the society,Praduman Yadav,meanwhile says that the issue has been going on since before he took over as the president.
According to him,the original allottee was expelled from the society and later moved the court against his expulsion. He,however,withdrew the case later. He gave general power of attorney to someone else for the flat. However,GPA of an expelled member cannot be acceptable.
SHO of Sector 34 police station,Inspector Diwan Singh,says that the complaint has been received. A report on the society has also been submitted.
