Explain why policy on converted plots not implemented: HC

Chandigarh, July 28

The Punjab and Haryana High Court has asked Haryana why its Industries and Commerce Department and the Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation did not implement a policy for providing converted industrial plots to land losers.

“It is made clear that until it is explained, no further plots should be sold or allotted in favour of any persons before complying with the obligation which they have undertaken,” said the Division Bench of Justice SN Satyanarayana and Justice Archana Puri.

The matter was brought to the HC’s notice by Om Kawar of Kharkhoda in Sonepat. Going into the background, the counsel contended that the notification dated April 1, 2010, was issued for development of an industrial model township in Kharkhoda. About 3,300 acres were sought to be acquired.

The petitioner, as per the policy, was eligible for 2,144 square metres of developed industrial plots. The petitioner received a letter dated December 11, 2018, seeking option for size and “quantity” of plots. The option was submitted and the petitioner approached the CM Window.

Despite representations and meetings, neither was substantial action taken nor an assurance given as to when the entitlement would be fulfilled. On June 29, a fresh advertisement was issued, announcing the allotment of industrial plots.—TNS
