The Delhi High Court has issued summons to the Cooperative Societies Registrar for not clearing names of eligible members, who have been waiting to occupy flats in various group housing societies.

"Enough is enough, you cannot hold the court to ransom. We will make him do his home work here by making him sit in a corner of the court..." the court said. The bench headed by Justice Pradeep Nandrajog directed the registrar to explain the delay to the court in person on Monday.

The order came on an application filed by a group of members of Vasudhara Society, alleging that the office of the registrar has not cleared the names for 67 flats despite the fact that they are eligible.

More than 100 housing societies had come under CBI’s scanner, after a housing scam in 2005. But the agency had cleared a majority of societies. The court had then asked the registrar's office to allot the flats to genuine members.
