In a decision that is likely to benefit hundreds of Delhiites, the government has given go-ahead to allotment of flats in disputed co-operative group housing societies in Dwarka and other areas.

Delhi Cabinet on Monday asked the registrar of cooperative societies (RCS) to hand over the list of flat owners in the disputed societies to Delhi Development Authority (DDA) to start the process of allotment.

Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit said these societies were under the scanner for irregularities in providing membership. The CBI also investigated the charges of some people fraudulently reviving defunct housing societies in connivance with the officials of RCS to get land from the DDA at a concession.

In 2007, the CBI completed its investigations submitted its report to the high court. The investigating agency had cleared most of the societies. Later, more than 20 societies conducted self-draws and members moved to their flats.

“We have now asked the RCS to forward the list of members to DDA for holding draw of lots and regularise the results of self- draws subject to certain conditions,” Dikshit said. HTC
