According to the report by the Hindu the Supreme Court has dismissed Delhi Development Authority (DDA) plea seeking extension of deadline laid down by court to allot plot/land to nearly 14,000 applicants in Rohini area.
Earlier land-owning agency had sought indefinite extension, citing law and order problems being created by local villagers in the area. DDA had assured SC that the land in question is in its possession, yet in its latest application is now claiming “that villagers/ outsiders are creating hurdles & not letting it develop the land”.
The court has also ordered DDA to allot plots to remaining 14,000 applicants and conclude external development work by July 31, 2016. It had then cautioned the vice-chairman and the chief engineer that any “breach” of its order would be “viewed seriously”.
In housing scheme of 1981 nearly 25,000 of the original 83,000 applicants, still have not received plots.
