Chandigarh, July 30 (IANS) The Haryana government’s town and country planning department Saturday ordered the cancellation of the draw of lots for allotment of flats to economically weaker sections (EWS) built by a leading private builder in Gurgaon.

The draw of lots for flats in the Ansal API Sushant Lok Sector 28 of Gurgaon was cancelled because the scheme was not properly publicised by the developer, a spokesman of the state government said here Saturday.

The draw of lots was to be held Monday (Aug 1).

The spokesman said that not many people knew about the scheme. Department officials found that only 23 applications were received for the 25 flats available.

Gurgaon Deputy Commissioner P.C. Meena had brought the matter to the notice of town and country planning department.

The spokesman said that Meena, on enquiry, found that the developer had not properly advertised about the flats and plots, due to which the number of applicants was quite low.

He said that the developer will have to advertise the EWS flats once again in the newspapers having adequate circulation in district Gurgaon as per the conditions of the license so that the needy and deserving could avail of the benefit of the scheme.
