Manesar land scam: Government fails to verify claims, buyers move SC

GURUGRAM: The ABW Manesar Allottee Welfare Society, Gurugram on Saturday, filed a contempt petition against the state of Haryana and its agency, Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (HSIIDC) in the Supreme Court for failing to comply with its earlier order, delivered on March 12, 2018, in the Manesar land case.
As per the March 12 order, HSIIDC was to verify claims of all homebuyers who had bought properties in projects developed on the land affected by the scam, within two months from the judgement date. However, HSIIDC is yet to complete the process. “Instead, HSIIDC is still juggling with process, and have issued a fresh diktat to buyers to file documents which they have already submitted in April 2018,” said Naresh Jindal, president, ABW Manesar Allotee Welfare Society.
Sameer Chaddha, another homebuyer, said HSIIDC appears clueless, and while claims of buyers in other projects on the same land are being processed, ABW buyers are suffering. “It has been six months since the judgement and HSIIDC is asking for the same documents we have already delivered months back. There is absolutely no clarity on the status of claims or the project. It’s almost a decade since we bought our homes, and we’re still clueless about the future,” said Chaddha, who works as senior manager at Maruti.
HSIIDC officials said they are planning to file an application with the Supreme Court for extension of deadline for verification of homebuyer claims. “The time allotted to us by the SC was not enough to complete the verification process. Hence, we will seek an extension from the honourable court,” said a senior HSIIDC official.
He added that meanwhile, individual claims of homebuyers are being verified through an external auditor.
