Kharar, January 5
A three-member committee set up to look into house tax objections has so far been able to collect Rs 20 lakh from around fifty per cent cases solved so far.

Out of 1,200 house tax cases, 550 have already come up for hearing before the committee. In most of the cases, the house tax payees had alleged that they were being charged arbitrarily. The committee members heard their objections and reassessed the tax levied.

In many a cases, the amount of tax levied reduced considerably and people willingly paid the new amount calculated after reassessment.

EO Vijay Gupta said most of the people had amicably settled house tax levied on them. “The local bodies department had directed us to solve all pending house tax objections within a month time period which expires tomorrow,” he said.

Gupta added that no objections would be entertained after January 6. House tax was arbitrarily levied on traders and residents of Kharar, raising a hue and cry from all quarters.

People had run a campaign against the hefty taxes levied on them and opposed it tooth and nail. Seeing the protest, the local bodies department directed the municipal council, Kharar, to form a sub-committee of three councillors that would hear objections and reassess the taxes.

Ex-IPS officer’s plea on promotion dismissed

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, January 5
Former IPS officer R.L. Sarangal’s plea in a promotion matter has failed to find favour with the Punjab and Haryana High Court.

In his petition against the Union of India and other respondents placed before Justice Hemant Gupta and Justice Jora Singh, Sarangal had challenged the order dated March 20, 1997, passed by the Central Administrative Tribunal, dismissing his original application in the matter.

A direct recruit to the Indian Police Service with 1960, as the year of allotment, he had sought the quashing of an order dated January 18, 1993, declining his representation for “promotion to Deputy Inspector-General of Police scale from deemed date, as was granted to Harjeet Singh and B.R.Kapur”, who were promotee officers.

He had contended that the promotee officers were assigned 1963 as year of allotment by the Government of India vide communication dated January 11, 1971.

Aggrieved against the allotment, writ petitions were filed before this Court by the promotee officers.

A Single Judge had allowed the writ petitions on July 16, 1973, and directed the authorities to grant year of allotment “from the date of continuous officiation in the cadre of the senior posts.

Letters patent appeals were filed before the Division Bench, which allowed these on May 17, 1975, with a direction to the Central Government to re-decide the question of assignment of the year of allotment in the light of the observations made in the judgment. Harjeet Singh and Kapur filed civil appeals before the Supreme Court, along with the petitioner. The judgment of Division Bench was set aside and that of the Single Judge was restored. As a consequence of the order passed in civil appeals, the promotee officers were assigned year of allotment as 1960; promoted as DIG with effect from September 25, 1980, as a result of re-fixation of seniority and were given deemed date of promotions with consequential benefits.

In the revised gradation list as on January 1, 1982, the promotee officers were shown senior to the petitioner.

The Bench observed: “Kapur and Harjeet Singh have been given year of allotment in terms of the order passed by Supreme Court…. Since action has been taken in terms of the order passed by Supreme Court, therefore, challenge to the order granting promotion to Harjeet Singh and Kapur cannot be permitted to be disputed by the petitioner, more so after four years of his retirement; 12 years after his representation was declined and after 13 years of granting such benefit to the promotee officers. Consequently, we do not find any illegality or material infirmity in the order passed by the Tribunal”.

Chandigarh, January 5
A local court today extended the police remand of Baba Pritpal Singh, who was arrested on January 2, by two days.He was sent to further remand by duty magistrate Mahesh Kumar following long arguments between the prosecution and the defence.While hundreds of followers were chanting prayers in front of the courts complex since the morning before Pritpal was produced there, arguments between both parties took place inside the packed courtroom.

His followers distributed ‘jalebis’ and tea among the police personnel on duty and others present. He was brought on a wheelchair till the courtroom as he was not feeling well. The prosecution, demanding five-day remand, asserted that the accused had not been cooperating with it to unearth facts and further custodial interrogation was required for investigation, following which the court extended the remand.

Accused in a land grab case, Pritpal was arrested by the special crime investigation cell of the UT police, following which he was taken into two-day police custody. The baba, along with others, allegedly sold a piece of land for over Rs 1.2 crore to the ATS Builders, a private company, on the basis of forged general power of attorney.

UT’s senior standing counsel Anupam Gupta stated that two-day remand given earlier was inadequate and insufficient for proper, effective and comprehensive interrogation of the accused.

“The accused is not cooperating in the investigation and has been evasive on crucial aspects, and at least five more days of custody is required to unravel complete facts and circumstances of the case,” said Gupta.

The police said the accused had revealed during interrogation that out of the sale consideration received by him from the company, Rs 90 lakh had been spent to purchase land at Hazoor Sahib in Nanded district of Maharashtra.

“Another amount of Rs 20 lakh has been used to purchase land near Chamkaur Sahib in Ropar. The accused has not been disclosing the use of the remaining amount of Rs 10 lakh,” said Gupta. He also said Pritpal had not been cooperating with police in disclosing the name of the person who had signed the general power of attorney in the name of complainant Kamaljit Kaur in Pritpal’s favour.

The police also said the accused had not been disclosing the names of the other persons who had conspired with him for preparing the fake general power of attorney.

“The accused is also not disclosing any further details regarding the transactions of land purchase at Hazoor Sahib, Nanded and Chamkaur Sahib, including the mode and manner of payment and to whom the payments were made,” said Anupam Gupta.

He added that the accused had also not been disclosing the bank accounts, which were required to be ascertained by the investigating agency for further progress in the case. The defence counsel pleaded that Pritpal was neither a thief, nor a fraudster, and had been running a charitable school and a dispensary and heading a gurdwara for the past 30 years.
