Allotment of Flats in Dwarka Starts Process

Delhi Government started the process for allotment of flats in certain group housing societies in Dwarka which were not under the purview of any investigation by CBI.

As part of the process, government today set up a camp at the Delhi Secretariat complex to facilitate the societies to present their documents to the Registrar of Cooperative Societies (RCS).

Earlier this month, Revenue Minister Raj Kumar Chauhan had said the government will start the process of allotment in certain housing societies after getting all relevant documents. The camp opened today will continue tomorrow also.

Allotment of the flats in Dwarka Cooperative Group Housing Societies were delayed by several years as a CBI probe found that many societies were fake.

Following some allegations, the Delhi High Court had asked CBI to probe the irregularities in the group housing societies.

Six group housing societies had last month held a self-draw of lots to get possession of the flats which were lying vacant since 2005 following investigation by CBI and court cases.

Some members of 10 different Cooperative Group Housing Societies (CGHS) had held their own draw in January this year also. The Registrar of Cooperative Societies had, however, declared the draw null and void.

In February this year, representatives of the group housing societies had met Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit and sought her intervention in finding a solution to the deadlock relating to possession of their flats.

Dikshit had also assured them that the Registrar of Cooperative Societies (RCS) will process their case expeditiously
