New Delhi, Aug 25 (IANS) The Delhi High Court Monday cleared the way for allotment of flats to around 10,000 members of a cooperative group housing scheme as it gave directions to the Registrar of Cooperative Societies to verify their names and begin the process of allotting homes. A division bench of Justices Manmohan Sarin and Veena Birbal formally issued guidelines for the allotment and appointed a new committee headed by Justice (retired) R.C. Chopra to approve the recommendations submitted by the societies and the Registrar’s office.
Asking 58 group housing societies which were given a clean chit by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), to furnish all information along with the list of members to the Registrar office within 15 days, the bench said the committee would submit a report for issuing an appropriate order to the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) for a draw of lots.
The societies were also directed to publish in newspapers proposals regarding the clearance of membership for allotment of flats.
The bench directed the Registrar to submit a report before the Justice Chopra Committee, which would finally approve the proposals and this panel would submit a report before the court for an appropriate order.
On March 8, the court had appointed a high-power committee to expedite identification of the genuine members.
