The Faridabad Municipal Corporation today presented a housing policy for the rehabilitation of those affected by the demolition of unauthorised constructions in Khori village, by April 2022.

According to the policy, last date to submit the application for rehabilitation is October 15. The date for issuance of final allotment letters is November 15. Shifting to the new accommodation will happen by April 30, 2022.

Apex court order states...

The MC shall, upon receipt of application along with documents prime facie establishing eligibility for rehabilitation, issue provisional allotment to such applicants in a week from the receipt of application after due scrutiny. SC bench

However, the Faridabad MC, in principle, agreed to roll out provisional allotment, independent of the scheme enlisted in the affidavit regarding the allotment of premises/houses in lieu of rehabilitation of eligible applicant(s) after a Bench led by Justice AM Khanwilkar raised questions regarding the timeframe proposed by the civic body.

It asked the Faridabad MC to give provisional accommodation to dwellers in state flats after a scrutiny, which will be subject to final adjudication and draw of lots.

“Needless to observe that on taking possession of provisional/temporary accommodation, the rent/solatium of Rs 2,000 per month offered to the applicant(s) concerned shall stand discontinued on case-to-case basis,” the Bench said.

The court stated that upon the receipt of applications accompanied by documents prime facie establishing eligibility for rehabilitation, the civic body would issue provisional allotment within a week after due scrutiny and the letter would indicate that it was only temporary and subject to verification and final draw of lot.

“The MC shall, upon receipt of application duly accompanied by documents prime facie establishing eligibility for rehabilitation, issue provisional allotment to such applicants within one week from the receipt of application after due scrutiny,” it said.

The SC will further hear the matter on next Monday.

The top court had on June 7 ordered the Haryana Government and Faridabad Municipal Corporation to remove “all encroachments”, consisting around 10,000 residential constructions, in Aravali forestland near the village, saying “land grabbers cannot take refuge in rule of law and talk of fairness”. It had

also sought a compliance report from the officials of the state government.
