Plot allottees of Sector 76-80 staged a protest against Greater Mohali Area Development Authority (GMADA) outside PUDA Bhawan in Sector 62, on Thursday, over the increase in plot rates and delay in possession of remaining plots.
Sucha Singh Kalaur, president of Sector 76-80 Plot Allotment Sangarsh Committee, said, “GMADA should have first given possession of the remaining plots and after that the auction of the commercial sites should have been done. The authorities should have sorted the accounting of organisations to whom the land has been allotted by GMADA and afterwards they should have increased plot rates.”
The allottees also said that the process of possession of remaining plots is on halt because of carelessness of GMADA authorities as they failed to take possession of 102 acres land after the rejection of writs and now the case of 102 acres is in Supreme Court.
The allottees appealed to Punjab chief minister Prakash Singh Badal, who is also the chairman of GMADA and Sukhbir Singh Badal, deputy chief minister, and the housing incharge to take up the matter and withdraw the increase in rates of the plots. They also appealed to give possession of the remaining plots to the allottes who have been suffering from the last 12 years.
The allottees also said that if the officials did not take necessary action they would continue the protest with support of various organisations against the government and GMADA authorities.
In July, GMADA had imposed an additional price of Rs 750-910/square yard on the plots giving a jolt to owners of 4,000 residential plots in Sectors 76-80.
The decision means that a person who owes a one-kanal plot in any of the five sectors will now have to pay Rs 4.25 lakh to GMADA, while the owner of a 1,000-square-yard plot will have to pay another Rs 9.1 lakh.
100 to 200-sq-yard Rs 750/square yard
250 to 500-sq-yard Rs 850/square yard
1,000-sq-yard Rs 910/square yard
