Rohini allottees caught in DDA plot.
THERE is no end to the woes of hundreds of allottees of DDA's Rohini residential scheme even after 35 years of prolonged wait.
Despite various court orders, many of them have not got their plots despite allotment in their names.
Some allottees have alleged that even after receiving demand and allotment letters from the land owning agency, they have been served with show- cause notices resulting into further delay and harassment.
They also alleged that DDA is not accepting the conditions of its own circular which says that any individual having plot measuring 67 sq metres or more would not be able to get the plot allotted in the scheme.
But, some allottees claim that in the last 35 years they had no option but to purchase some land or flat to live in the city.
An allottee Jagdish Prasad ( 87), a resident of Raja Garden, has already suffered two heart attacks.
His nephew, Vinod Kumar says, " He is not in a position to make rounds of DDA offices anymore.
So we do it on his behalf. Whenever I visit him, he first asks me about the case." Roshanlal Gupta, another such allottee, asks, " What could I do? I was living in Shastri Nagar with my family. I desperately wanted to shift out of the place. I could not have waited all my life for DDA to deliver me a housing site." Praveen Agarwal, son of allottee Gopal Agarwal, says, " My father died in June 2003. I presented some documents on DDA's demand including my father's will.
They misused the paper to say I and my brothers have properties already," he rues.
Jai Prakash Agrawal, Principal Commissioner ( Housing), DDA, told M AIL T ODAY , " We understand that there are constraints. There are about 100 to 200 allottees affected by this circular. We are looking for solutions." Sunil Gupta of Akhil Bhartiya Manvadhikar Mission said that DDA is delaying the matter on one or another issue. " Hundreds of people have not got their plots even after so many years. This time DDA is not ready to accept the conditions of their own circulars.
We would raise the issue with the concerned authority." In 1981, DDA had invited applications for plots
In 1981, the DDA had invited applications to allot fully developed plots measuring between 26 sqm and 90 sqm to people from economically weaker sections ( EWS), lower income group ( LIG) and middle income group ( MIG).
In March 2012, the Delhi HC had ordered DDA to complete the process within three months.
DDA issued allotment letters, but people were not issued demand letters. Subsequently, the Supreme Court took strong objection and fixed a timeframe for DDA. In March 2015, the SC set a final deadline of July 2016 to hand over developed plots to allottees.
