700 plot owners in Gurgaon to get fresh allotment


For over 700 plot owners on disputed Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) land, the agonizing wait for getting fresh allotment might be over by January next year. Sorting out the cases of disputed plots has been a huge task for HUDA, officials said. The disputed plot owners had been fighting cases for more than seven years to get alternative plots by HUDA.

“So far over 300 disputed plots have been cleared and the owners have been allotted as per HUDA rules and regulations. Now in the next lot we are planning to clear over 700 plots,” said HUDA, administrator, Praveen Kumar. Earlier, because of paucity of the land and vacant plots, HUDA had been grappling with the allotment of the plots and this led to litigation in different courts.

Most of the plot owners were allotted plots and have paid substantial amounts to HUDA. The entire process of allotment went haywire after the landowners dragged HUDA to court and it became difficult to allot the plots. After the recent high court order HUDA has now swung into action and has expedited the allotment of the plots. HUDA has now worked out demarcation of all the vacant plots that are clear of any encumbrance.

The estate officer-II, Manoj Khatri, said: “Clearing of all the cases of owners of disputed plots has been the top priority and I am sure that all the cases in EO II range will be completed”. Khatri has done all the spadework before clearing the disputed plot cases. The demarcation of all the vacant plots has been done in all the sectors now the next stage of action is seeking green light from the chief administrator’s office. “The details of the plots on offer in different sectors will be sent to the chief administrator, HUDA, and then the allotment process will start, most likely in the first half of January,” said Khatri.
