Taking up a petition filed by unsuccessful applicants of ‘UT Employees Self Financing Housing Scheme- 2008’, the Punjab and Haryana high court on Friday directed the Chandigarh administration and the Chandigarh Housing Board (CHB) to consider the claim of 3,882 unsuccessful applicants of the scheme within three months.

The directions came from the division bench headed by justice Surya Kant while hearing a petition filed by Kamal Deep Sehra and 411 other unsuccessful candidates.

The petitioners had approached the high court seeking directions to provide/construct the dwelling units under the 2008-scheme on leasehold basis for 99 years for Chandigarh administration employees.

The court was informed that the scheme was formulated keeping in mind the employees having no house in Chandigarh, SAS Nagar and Panchkula.
