Panchkula, February 7
A Panchkula court today ordered the attachment of the official cars of HUDA Chief Administrator DPS Nagal, Panchkula HUDA Administrator (additional charge) Surjit Singh and HUDA estate officer Ashwini Sharma for failing to comply with the court orders in a booth allotment case.

Though HUDA officials managed to hide two vehicles, court officials took away one of the official cars of Surjit Singh. Heated arguments took place when the court officials were trying to take away Nagal’s official car.

A team of court officials reached the HUDA office, Sector 6, Panchkula, here this morning to attach the vehicles.

Recently, a Panchkula court had ordered HUDA to allot a booth in Sector 15 to a resident, but HUDA officials failed to comply with the court orders.

Tarun Gulati, a resident, had moved the court regarding booth No. 94 in Sector 15, which was taken on rent/lease. After 1998, HUDA stated in its policy that it would auction the booth. However, Gulati and HUDA failed to reach a consensus on the price after which Gulati moved the court.

The court gave its verdict in Gulati’s favour and ordered HUDA officials to allot the booth to him. For the past one week, Gulati was running from pillar to post to get the allotment done, but HUDA officials allegedly did not pay heed.

“No such heated arguments took place. We were trying to tell the court officials that we have filed an appeal in the Punjab and Haryana High Court, but they refused to listen,” said Ashwini Sharma, HUDA estate officer.

Surjit Singh reached the office in his second official car and saw heated arguments taking place between HUDA staff and the court officials following which he called a meeting.

Chandigarh, February 7
A UT police constable was allegedly assaulted while his constable wife was eve-teased and molested by three occupants of a Swift car in the wee hours today. The incident occurred near the grain market roundabout in Sector 26 when the constable couple, who were in civvies, became a victim of the youths' rowdiness.

The police said as the couple overtook a white Swift car (CH 44T 4663) near the roundabout on Madhya Marg, the car driver got enraged and passed lewd comments at the woman constable, who was riding pillion. All three youths seated in the car then continued to pass comments at the woman.

Chandigarh, February 7
The Haryana Government has sent a panel of three IAS officers for the secretary-level posts in the Chandigarh Administration.

The panel includes the names of Surjeet Singh, a 1998 batch IAS officer at present working as HUDA Administrator (Headquarters) in Panchkula, RC Verma, a 2001 batch IAS officer posted as Director Industrial Training, and A Srinivas, a 2004 batch IAS officer.

Admn not to extend 'lal dora'
Rajinder Nagarkoti
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, February 7
The Chandigarh Administration has decided not to extend the 'lal dora' (abadi deh), the boundary line beyond which any construction is declared as illegal. The administration has also decided not to withdraw the Periphery Act.

The UT officials would soon submit their reply to the Punjab and Haryana High Court where a public interest litigation (PIL) in this regard is pending.

A UT official said in 2007, the UT Administration had decided to provide the basic amenities and facilities to the settlers, who had raised unauthorised structures beyond the 'lal dora'. But later in 2009, it was realised that the earlier decision was encouraging unauthorised construction in the peripheral area and a notification was issued in supersession of the earlier notifications.

The official said the withdrawal of the Periphery Act was causing a lot of haphazard growth in the area and in most cases it was not an extension of village 'abadi' but illegal constructions raised by migrant settlers or development of agricultural land by villagers not for their own families but for the purpose of property dealing to make money, which is against the spirit of the extension of the 'lal dora' and the objectives and reasons of the Periphery Act.

The UT Administration has now decided that it has no immediate plans to withdraw the application of the Periphery Act as made applicable again by the notification of 2009 and the Periphery Act shall continue to be applicable in the areas beyond the 'lal dora' as earlier.

In his public interest litigation (PIL), advocate Vijay Bansal had contended that the 'lal dora' was determined around a century ago when land settlement took place. With an increase in the population in villages, thousands of "need-based" constructions by the owners on their land have taken place over the years. In this case, earlier, only Haryana was respondent but later the High Court made also Chandigarh and Punjab respondents.

Extension of dora to be counter-productive: UT

The UT Administration has decided that the Chandigarh Administration has limited land and the extension of 'lal dora' shall be counter-productive in most cases. It is not a spill over of village 'abadi' but illegal conduction by migrants, who are keen on settling or development of agricultural land by villagers not for their own families but for property dealing and money making. As such, the purpose of extension of 'lal dora' will be defeated.

Chandigarh, February 7
Brushing aside controversies over the interviews for selections and promotions scheduled at the PEC University of Technology later this month, Board of Management (BOM) that has VK Singh Secretary, Technical Education as the Co-Chairman, has decided to go ahead with the selections.

The forthcoming interviews to be held in less than two months before the tenure of the PEC director ends was being opposed by a section of employees stating that the college was ignoring the MHRD directions of 2004 that states no selections can be made three months before the end of his tenure.

In a special meeting of the Board of Management (BOM), held at the UT Administration today, which was chaired by VK Singh, Finance Secretary, who is also the Secretary to Technical Education the BOM, decided to go ahead with the interviews.

The interviews for around 56 posts are supposed to be held which were advertised by the college in September last year.

The SC/ST/OBC officers’ welfare association at the PEC University had represented against this move of the Director to the MHRD, UGC and the UT Administrator to stall the interviews. The association had alleged that Manoj Datta, Director, was conducting the interviews to favour a few of his near and dear ones, as his term is to end by March 2013.

Even the Joint Action Committee of the employees has also made a complaint to the UT Administration, UGC and the MHRD stating that Manoj Datta during his five-year tenure didn’t make even a single selection or promotions, however, when less then two-months are left of his tenure, Datta wants to conduct the interviews.

CAT admits UT teachers’ plea against deputationists

Chandigarh, February 7
The Central Administrative Tribunal has admitted a petition filed by UT teachers against long stay of deputationists in the UT Education Department. The case has been fixed for a hearing on March 27. As many as 39 government teachers have alleged in their petition that the department has became the dumping ground for the relatives of high-ups who were being accommodated without proper rules and regulation for the purpose. On the other hand, these high-ups are denying the promotion to the UT cadre an employee, which has made their life suffocating and humiliating.

Various judgments of the Central Administrative Tribunal/ Punjab and Haryana High Court and even the Supreme Court of India were ignored to accommodate the deputationists, the petitioners stated.

They also said that the teachers of Chandigarh are compelled to work under the principals/heads of other states who were much junior to UT teachers/lecturers. They got promotion from their parents’ states and managed to come to Chandigarh and posted in senior positions with in days of their promotion. This is a gross violation of the terms and condition of the policy framed for the purpose by the UT administration, said the petitioners.

It was also stated that the provision for deputation was made in Chandigarh for smooth running of the department, as there was dearth of eligible qualified staff. But that was not required now, they said.

Despite being a specific cap of 20 per cent of the total strength of the department, the percentage of outstation deputation employees are beyond the cap fixed for the purpose. There are several deputationists working in the department for over 20 years. — TNS
