Bathinda, 23 November-
Resentment prevails among the plot holders of Aerocity scheme of Greater Mohali Area Development Authority over non-development of the scheme even after two years of allotment of plots by draw.
National Campaign for people’s right to information (NCPRI) has today filed an application before the chief administrator of Greater Mohali Area Development Authority (GMADA) under right to information act to know the status report of this scheme. This was disclosed here today by Mr Gian Prakash Joshi advocate.
Mr Joshi said “yesterday the government of Punjab has decided to acquire 5250 acres more land to develop some news schemes under GMADA whereas no development has been done on the Aero City and other projects which were allotted two years ago”.
Mr Joshi said crores of rupees have been collected by GMADA as installments paid by the plot holders but not a single rupee had been spent on the development of the scheme. Even plot numbers have not been made available to the plot holders. Mr Joshi disclosed they are planning to file a Public Interest Litigation (P.I.L) in this matter after seeking details under RTI act.
NCPRI has sought a copy of the proceedings of 14th meeting of authority held under the chairmanship of Chief Minister on 22nd November, details of the money received so far by GMADA in the shape of installments of aero city scheme. It is worth mentioning here that draw of plots for aero city was held in 2010, but so far no steps have been initiated to develop this scheme.
