Subhash Ghai is facing trouble in Andhra Pradesh too with the CAG slamming the state government for allotting 20.1 acres of prime land to Whistling Woods in alleged violation of rules.
The CAG,in its latest report on land allotments by the Y S Rajasekhara Reddy regime,found the allotment of land to the institute was in violation of the AP Ancient and Historical Monuments and Archaeological Sites and Remains Rules 1960.
Based on a writ petition filed by a private person,the state High Court had in January 2010 suspended the state governments order of August 19,2009,granting 20.1 acres of land to Ghai.
The case is pending even as the state is set to review the allotment after the HC order as well as the CAGs observations,sources said.
The land allotted to the institute at Ibrahimbagh village in Hyderabad is adjacent to Premamati Mosque,a protected monument.
