On a petition alleging laxity in Rewari district administration’s approach against those responsible for large scale irregularities in alloting plots under the Indira Awaas Yojna, the Punjab and Haryana HC granted the deputy commissioner four months’ time to act.
The case pertains to Kanharwas village in Rewari district and petitioner Ram Parsad had alleged that the panchayat of his village and district authorities had committed large scale illegalities in allotment of 100 square yard plots under the scheme.
He said that 86 plots under the Yojna were allotted in his village, out of which an official inquiry had found 10 plots wrongly allotted, the petitioner added. But he submitted that there are still more plots wherein villagers have been benefited illegally.
The division bench comprising Justices Surya Kant and PB Bajanthri ordered, “Deputy Commissioner, Rewari, to call for the records and if any enquiry in accordance with the principles of natural justice has been held in which illegalities and irregularities are noticed in allotment of 100 square yard plots, let the matter be taken to its logical conclusion, within a period of four months from the date of receiving a certified copy of this order.”
On the basis of various complaints, an enquiry was made and the illegalities have been fully established by the enquiry reports submitted on June 28, 2013.
