Several persons, who were allotted residential plots at Haryana Shahari Vikas Pradhikaran (HSVP), Sector 10, in Bahadurgarh town, are feeling cheated as the level of plots is allegedly 20 feet lower than the road.

Many of them reside in rented accommodations and want to construct the house there. However, they are unable to do so without earth-filling that will cost them in lakhs. The HSVP has started imposing penalty on them for non-construction.

The allottees have filed a joint complaint to the Chief Minister, demanding redressal of their grievance and setting up of a panel to probe the sand theft.

A delegation of the allottees called on Bahadurgarh SDM Hitender Sharma today and raised the issue. Sharma has sought a report from the local Estate Officer of the HSVP in this respect.

Rs 75 lakh to fill patch

"The plots were allotted in 2017 through a draw system and no one at that time knew that the level of a full patch having 28 plots of 4 marla is 20 feet lower than the road. The allottees took time to raise the issue jointly. They personally made many rounds of the HSVP office, but to no avail. Now, we have decided to approach the court if the earth-filling is not done by the HSVP," said Mukesh Malik, a plot holder.

Manjit said he was paying house rent of Rs 10, 000 per month. "We are facing double whammy by paying the house rent and being fined by the HSVP for non-construction," he said.

Vikas, another allottee, maintained that the construction could not be done without earth-filling of the entire patch and it would cost over Rs 75 lakh. "Hence, the HSVP should do earth-filling up to 15 feet, and the rest can be done by us," he said.

Virender Hooda, administrator, HSVP, Rohtak, said the department was not liable for the pit as the plots were allotted on the basis of 'as it is, where it is' condition.
