Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) officials are likely to face action for irregularities in the allotment of alternative plots to oustees of Dwarka Expressway.
The oustees were given alternative plots in Sector 37C and Sector 110A, but at the time of preparing the layout, officials ignored the presence of high tension towers in these sectors. This led to 13 oustees — four from Kherki Daula village and nine from New Palam Vihar — being allotted plots below the high tension towers.
When they brought this to HUDA’s notice, a fresh draw of lots was conducted and alternative plots were given. All these have led to the delayed rehabilitation process.
More than 568 oustees of the Dwarka Expressway project had applied for alternative plots under the final terms of settlement (FTS) of 2015, prepared under the supervision of the Punjab and Haryana High Court.
HUDA had identified 232 oustees, eligible for rehabilitation, and handed over allotment letters to 148 of them in Sector 110A and Sector 37C in between May-September 2016. Although the oustees received the alternative plot, they are still waiting for the compensation.
