On a day when the Adarsh report got tabled in the legislature, the Comptroller and Auditor general (CAG) report which also saw the light of the day has raised questions on another housing society with members from the political and government babu clan. The report reveals irregularities in land allotment in the case of Ashirwad Society in Andheri.

The society, constructed with a stilt and 21 upper floors has 44 members approved by the government, and comprised government and non-government members including legislators and ministers, whose names are not revealed in the report.

Norms state that members are entitled to flats in the range of 27.87 to 60.40 sqm based on their income. But all the flats were built of equal size of 99.67 sqm.

It points out that a woman member who has listed her monthly income at Rs6,000 per month was given a bigger flat. Her husband, it says, is the chief promoter of Rajyog society in Andheri. Two other members were found to have houses in Rajyog and two others have other houses in their names, although the rule says no member should own another house.
