  to consider. These questions, as framed, cover a wide conspectus of the entire
  issue and controversies which arise in the matter. We only wish to emphasize
  that the Committee itself while giving the interim report, has reproduced last
  three paras of the order. Even at the cost of repetition, we would like to
  repeat the portions as reproduced in the report of the Committee.
  ??. As regards dealing with the remaining cases, we constitute a Committee
  consisting of Justice J.P. Singh (retired), as Chairman, DIG CBI, presently Shri
  A.K. Malhotra, Registrar, Cooperative Societies, presently Shri U.K. Vohra and
  Director Land Residential, DDA, presently Shri S.S. Gill as members. The

  eligibility and expulsion of members and determining the cases of genuine
  members. The Committee shall also go into the question of forged or genuine
  resignations and while determining that it will also take into consideration the
  payments made by the newly inducted members and the time period, if any, after
  which protest is sought to be made by the resigning members. The Committee may

  statistics of the total number of cases in which charge sheets have been filed
  and the total number of cases investigated. As per this report, charge sheets

  appropriate directions on the next date.

Yogiraj Krishna(CBI enquiry) Hearing on 09.07.2008

Dear members,

Please find below the extract of hearing at Hon'ble Delhi High Court on 09.07.2008.

The next date of hearing in this matter is on 16.07.2008.

Thanks & regards.

Dilip Kumar

This is from Hindustan Times: Dated July 10, 2008

"WHEN THE Delhi High Court probing the Rs4,000crore group housing scam
appointed a high-power committee four months ago to speed up
identification of genuine members, the thousands of families, mostly
in Dwarka, awaiting allotment since many years heaved a sigh of
relief. But on Wednesday, when the Delhi High Court sought to know the
status, it turned out the panel could not move an inch forward with
the task. The reason? Registrar, Cooperative Societies(RCS) U.K.
Vohra, a member of the committee, was of the view scrutinizing of
eligible members was his exclusive domain and the three other members,
including its Chairman (retired High Court judge J.E Singh), had no
business to interfere. With this being the situation, Singh requested
the court to relieve him of the responsibility refused by the Bench.
Presenting his case before a Bench of Justices Manmohan Sarin and
Veena Birbal, Vohra said "the com- mittee will not serve any purpose
and will only delay the whole process. There is no need of it. Where
there are more than 20 objections in a society, an Additional District
Judge can be appointed to assist me." Justice Sarin then asked Vohra
why he had not objected when the committee was formed to which no
convinc- ing reply was forthcoming. The judge made it clear the court
had "formed the intermediate committee considering the past history of
the RCS office where many of the officers were under scanner in the
scam. This was only a safeguard initiated by the High Court". After
hearing out Vohra at length and consulting K.C. Miittal, the amicus
curiae in the matter, Justice Sarin was of the view that some
modification had to be made as a middle path and the noble cause
behind the formation for the committee should not fall victim over the
differences over its constitution "For the fraudulent act of a few why
should innocents suffer? Our obligation ends once the eligible members
are pointed out. Let the RCS take over the burden. Let him do the
spadework and later the committee wW review it". "I too agree. Given
the voluminous task, if the committee themselves begin to consider
each objections in 90 societies, it will take years together", Justice
Sarin said. The Bench also sought legal opinion on whether there is
any impediment in asking the committee to review the findings of the
RCS. The high-level committee formed on March 8 was tasked to identify
genuine original members in around 90 societies under scanner It was
also further empowered to call for any information or documents from
any of the societies or government department."

Identify genuine CGHS    members fast : HC


Seeks time frame from registrar


Harish V Nair

New Delhi, July 16, 2008.



The Delhi  High Court on Wednesday asked the Registrar of Cooperative Societies to specify a time frame within which he can complete the process of identifying genuine members affected

 by the Rs. 4,000 crore group housing scam.


A Bench headed by justice Manmohan Sarin, which is looking into the modalities of carrying out the verification , told Registrar U.K. Vohra that once he fixed a time frame, he would have to adhere to it or else he would be “ hauled up in contempt .“ The Registrar will announce the time frame on Thursday.


On March 8, the court had appointed a high-power committee to expedite identification of genuine members as thousands of families, mostly in Dwarka, await allotment since years. But the panel could not go ahead with the task following a rift within.


Registrar Vohra, a member of the committee, felt scrutinizing eligible members was his exclusive domain and the three other members.. including its Chairman , retired High Court Judge J.P.Singh .. had no business to interfere.


The court was upset over the development but acting in the “ larger interest” allowed Vohra to do the “spade work” and then subject his findings to scrutiny by the committee.


But the differences continued. K.C. Mittal, the amicus curiae (lawyer helping the court) in the matter, and the Association of CGHS affected members (AOCAM) were against the Registrar independently handling the verification drive.

‘Issue notice to weed out bogus co-op members’

[{ HC Directive to Registrar}]



New Delhi : Delhi High Court on Thursday advised the Registrar of Co-operative societies (RCS) to issue a public notice inviting all genuine members of the scam ridden CGHS societies to come forth and be identified as this would ease the RCS’ task of weeding out bogus members.


A Division Bench headed by Justice Manmohan Sarin came up with this advice after the RCS pleaded helplessness in tracing all the members. He told the Bench that in the intervening years many members had changed their residences and contact information which made it very difficult for his office to trace them. “ If the entire list of members is published in a news paper, it would ease the task of identifying members which in normal course will take at least 8-10 weeks,” HC was informed during the hearing.


The court has demanded a time frame from the RCS by which he could identify the genuine ones reeling under the impact of the multi-crore group housing scam. Unhappy that a committee appointed to do this job was unable to progress. HC threatened to haul the RCS for contempt of the proposed deadline.  TNN

Confidence vote fever reaches court
Harish V.Nair
New Delhi , July 21
The FEVER of confidence vote in the Parliament seemed to have gripped the attention of Delhi High Court on Monday.“those who support ‘yes’ and those don’t say ‘no’, let there be no defection.” Said Justice Manmohan Sarin to lawyers standing for various parties during a hearing of the Rs.4,000 Crore Group Housing Scam sending the court-room into peels of laughter.
“Let us take it up like a confidence vote.”
Justice Sarin, who had initiated steps to identify Genuine Members in 58 Societies for allotments of flats, made the comment after putting forward the two viewpoints that emerged during arguments on the modalities to be followed for the process.
The Registrar of Cooprative Societies, U.K.Vohra, who has been entrusted with the task, said it would take at least three months to complete it.
He said each society had to issue advertisements in Newspapers giving details of incumbent and former members, Justice Sarin used the Parliamentary jargons to elicit the view of various parties on Vohra’s suggestion.
When it was found that there was overwhelming objection to Vohra’s suggestion, Justice Sarin told him, “ Mr. RCS, you are losing the confidence vote.”
K.C. Mittal, the lawyer assisting the court as the’amicus curiae’ and the lawyers appearing for many aggrieved societies, said there had been enough scam surrounding the office of the RCS and it could not be independently allowed to handle the verification.
They were also of the view that the list should not just carry the names of the current members, but also all those former members for a detailed verification.
“There is also a Third Front, Your Lordship,” said the lawyer representing Association of CGHS Affected Members ( AOCAM ). He wanted inclusion of societies being investigated by the CBI or against whom criminal cases had been registered and grant its members “ provisional allotment.’
 The Court had in March appointed a four-member committee headed by a retired high-court judge, J.P.Singh , to speed up Identification of Genuine Members. But it could not go ahead following the rift within as Vohra wanted to do the job himself. following this.

In last hearing RCS told HC that, they would put Advertisement for those 57 Societies in next 15 days, but even after 1 month no such notice is seen. Do you have any updates on this. Please post it here.
