"We have raised some objections and forwarded them to the private group (RLF and United Leasing Limited)," said a senior official in the Town and Country Planning Department, Chandigarh, on condition of anonymity. "The letter of intent has not been issued yet and it is unlikely to be granted by the government till all the objections are cleared," said the official.
Two companies, RLF and United Leasing Limited, owned by the family of Anil Khanna, the AITA president, have applied for a CLU for setting up a tennis venture in 6.85 acres in Jundsarai village, Gurgaon-Pataudi Road.
"We will also look into the commercial angle associated with the academy. The government is giving them relief keeping in mind the promotion of sports," the official said. Khanna had told HT that the project was envisaged to build an international tennis academy.
