DISTRICT ADMINISTRATION would file a First Information Report against Jagrati Grah Nirman Sahkari Sanstha for cheating plotholders and district administration.
The housing cooperative society did not provide basic amenities to people whom it sold plots despite receiving development fees from them. Then, it sold same plots to more than one person. For instance, plot number 261 was sold to Sushila Tripathi in 1992. It was re-sold to another resident Trilok Nath in 1997 and Yashwardhan in 1999 without informing the previous purchasers.
These irregularities were traced in the inquiry undertaken by three-member committee headed by Additional Collector Ramesh Bhandari.
The inquiry report submitted by the committee to district Collector Vivek Aggarwal on Saturday said that the coloniser allocated plots on the land, which it sold to Savita Grah Nirman Sahkari Sanstha. The plots were allotted through registered sale deeds. The plots kept with District Collector, Indore Municipal Corporation as security were also sold through registry.
Besides, the registries made in favour of Savita housing society show that registration fee has been charged on agricultural land. But an on the spot inspection showed that the plots have been laid and it’s a developed land. The housing society thus caused a loss to State exchequer by paying less stamp duty.
The inquiry report also points out that IMC and Town and Country Planning Department did not exercise caution while clearing maps for plots and granting clearance for layouts respectively.
The committee has charged Jagrati housing society with not producing adequate landholding documents before the court of deputy registrar, cooperative societies.
In the end, the committee has recommended that Jagrati housing society call a general meeting and allocate plots to remaining members within three months. The Cooperative Department has been asked to ensure that development takes place in the colony as soon as possible.
