New Delhi, September 14

The Faridabad Municipal Corporation (FMC) on Tuesday presented a housing policy for rehabilitation by April 2022 of those affected by demolition of unauthorised constructions in Khori village in Faridabad, Haryana.

According to the policy, last day of application is October 15 and November 15 is the date for issuance of final allotment letters. Shifting to the new accommodation is meant to happen by April 30, 2022.

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

It asked the FMC to give provisional accommodation to the dwellers in state flats after provisional scrutiny which will be subject to the final adjudication and final 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 concerned applicant(s) shall stand discontinued on case-to-case basis,” the Bench said.

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

“The corporation 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.

Top court would further hear the matter on next Monday.

The top court had on June 7 ordered the Haryana Government and the Faridabad Municipal Corporation to remove “all encroachments”, consisting around 10,000 residential constructions, in Aravali forest area 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 state government officials.
