    CHANDIGARH: In the wake of a recent case, where a woman had duped many by claiming to be a member of the Chandigarh Housing Board (CHB) allotment committee, the board on Friday clarified that the process of allotment of CHB dwelling units is transparent and there is no role of any private person or middlemen in allotment of flats.

    Board’s CEO Yashpal Garg said that in the general housing scheme, the applications are invited from general public through public notices in newspapers and on the website of CHB about launch of general housing scheme with its detailed features and eligibility conditions.

The result of the draw is immediately uploaded on the website of the CHB. There is no scope of any private person or middlemen in allotment of flats, he clarified.

    Similarly, under small flats scheme, the eligibility for allotment under the scheme is decided by the estate office, based on some survey and some clear criteria. Thereafter the details of eligible persons are forwarded to the CHB. The allotments are done by the CHB through a computerised draw in a fair and transparent manner.

      Chandigarh: Admn plots its move for Rs 1,200 crore land

      Rajinder Nagarkoti / TNN / Sep 5, 2021, 10:19 IST


      A portion of the 25-acre land in sectors 52 and 56, Chandigarh

      Chandigarh: What to do with land worth Rs 1,200 crore? Build a hospital, or a convention centre? No, developing it into a commercial area sounds better? Why not a group housing society? All these options will be on the table when a key meeting of the UT administration takes place next week, according to a senior UT official.

      The administration took possession of the 25-acre land in sectors 52 and 56 eight months back after rehabilitating slum dwellers of tin shed colony. The land is earmarked for the expansion plans of the third phase of the city. The slum dwellers had illegally encroached upon the land much before it was acquired by the administration in the early 1990s.

      After getting possession of the land, discussions had started on its use, but the second wave of Covid-19 delayed the project, the official said. “Now, there will be a detailed discussion on the vacant land,” he added.

      The administration has relocated around 1,700 families within a short period of two months. The allottees were provided flats under Affordable Housing Scheme at Maloya along with water and electricity connections. A list of occupants at pre-fab shelters in sectors 52 and 56 was prepared after a survey was conducted from September 29 to October 1, 2020 and 1,769 families allotted EWS flats in Maloya-I, the construction of which had begun in June 2014 at Rs 250 crore.

      The CHB is the nodal body for the construction of rehabilitation colonies. So far, it has built 12,736 of the 25,728 flats proposed. Of these, around12,000 were built in Sector 38 (W), Sector 49, Dhanas, Mauli Jagran-II and Ram Darbar.

      The administration rehabilitates slum-dwellers after conducting a biometric survey. The colonies resettled in the last 10 years include Colony No. 5, Nehru Colony, Kuldeep Colony and Mazdoor Colony.

        Speed up rehabilitation of Chandigarh's colony no. 4 slum dwellers: Adviser

        The UT administration has fixed a meeting next week over disputed cases of slum dwellers and to finalise a plan to shift them to Maloya.
        CHANDIGARH: UT adviser Dharam Pal has asked the deputy commissioner’s office and Chandigarh Housing Board (CHB) to speed up rehabilitation of eligible slum dwellers of Colony No. 4. He has asked officials to rehabilitate them in Maloya under the slum-dwellers rehabilitation scheme and settle their dispute cases. The UT administration has fixed a meeting next week over disputed cases of slum dwellers and to finalise a plan to shift them to Maloya.

        The CHB had recently written to UT deputy commissioner’s office to provide the remaining list of eligible slum dwellers of Colony no 4 for their rehabilitation. A senior CHB official said they are providing flats as and when they get the list from the DC office.

        The land is currently occupied by slum-dwellers, who will be rehabilitated by the administration in Maloya under the slum-dwellers’ rehabilitation scheme. While UT administration has already rehabilitated over 2,500 eligible beneficiaries as per the UT estate office survey in 2006, around 500 slum dwellers are to be rehabilitated.

        UT estate office and CHB have already given flats to 2,482 eligible slum-dwellers in Maloya under the slum-dwellers rehabilitation scheme. The colony has more than 5,000 houses. Eligible allottees will have to pay Rs 800 as licence fee every month for 20 years, after which they will pay the balance to get ownership of the flat.

        Sources said that the slum dwellers, whose claims were disputed, will be shifted to flats in Maloya, constructed under the Affordable Rental Housing Complexes (ARHCs) scheme of the Centre. Allottees will be required to pay a monthly rent of Rs 3,000, which would be increased biennially by 8%. The total rental period would be a maximum of 25 years.

        Sources said that if the disputed cases become eligible at a later stage, the UT administration will charge license fee of Rs 800 with retrospective date.

        Construction of flats in Maloya began in June 2014 at a cost of Rs 250 crore. Prime Minister Narendra Modi was to hand over flat keys to allottees in May 2019, but the project was not completed at the time. Originally, it was meant to be completed by 2016.

        CHB is the nodal body for construction of rehabilitation colonies. So far, it has built 12,736 of the 25,728 flats proposed. Of these, around 12,000 were built in Sector 38 (W), Sector 49, Dhanas, Mauli Jagran-II and Ram Darbar.

          Chandigarh housing board pegs Rs 643 crore as cost to construct 728 flats at IT Park

          The proposed flats will have ground plus 6 floors comprising two basements for parking of two cars for each flat in addition to surface parking for visitors only.
          CHANDIGARH: The Chandigarh Housing Board (CHB) has reckoned Rs 643 crore will be needed to construct 728 flats under the general housing scheme in 16.6 acres of land in two pockets of IT Park, placing the amount in its agenda that will come up for approval in a board meeting on September 8.

          “The consultant architect has prepared a rough cost estimate based on CPWD with applicable cost index. There will be a community centre and shopping complex too.

          This estimate covers the cost of the building work, which includes civil, public health, electrical and external estate services. The civil work will cost Rs 471 crore, while public health works Rs 32 crore,” according to a copy of the agenda.

          The proposed flats will have ground plus 6 floors comprising two basements for parking of two cars for each flat in addition to surface parking for visitors only.

          “Adequate accommodation would be provided for domestic servants and other service population of economically weaker section (EWS). Dwelling units for them shall not be less than15% of the main ones and minimum area is 30 square metre,” the agenda added.

          Sufficient green area is kept reserved in the housing project and will be developed in manner that it can be maintained. The site is close to a forest and Sukhna Lake, making greenery one of the crucial aspects of the project.

          The UT adviser, who also holds the charge of CHB chairman, will chair the meeting.

            Many properties sold to multiple owners, realtors: Chandigarh administration report

            The report was submitted by UT chief architect. In one instance, a property in Sector 22 had four sale deeds, another had five. A developer bought a property and sold it to other people. The report also highlights floor-wise sale in these properties in different parts of the city.
            CHANDIGARH: A survey report submitted by the UT administration before the Punjab and Haryana high court in connection with the ongoing petition challenging floor-wise registration reveals that many properties were sold to multiple owners and even to realtors and developers.

            The report was submitted by UT chief architect. In one instance, a property in Sector 22 had four sale deeds, another had five. A developer bought a property and sold it to other people. The report also highlights floor-wise sale in these properties in different parts of the city.

            The report stated that between August 28, 2016 and December 31, 2019, 891 residential properties in sectors 4 to 46 were sold on 50%, 30% and 20% basis to those outside the family of the original owner or shareholder. Out of 891 properties, the team carried out physical verification of 281.

            The report was submitted on the directions of the Supreme Court. The high court has now listed the case for September 20.

            On September 6, the SC directed Punjab and Haryana high court to adjudicate the dispute related to floor-wise sale of properties in the city at the earliest, preferably within two weeks. The SC also asked the UT administration to submit survey report of properties within a week to the high court. Earlier, the apex court had stayed the directions of the high court related to survey of estate office properties, where there had been transfer of shares.

            On July 27, the high court directed the administration to carry out a sample survey of the estate office’s residential properties sold in the city between 2016 and December 31, 2019, on 50%, 30% and 20% basis to a person outside the family of the original owner or shareholder.

            The court had directed the chief architect to conduct the survey within two weeks, fixing August 11 as the next date of hearing on a public interest litigation (PIL) filed by the Sector 10 Residents’ Welfare Association on raising of apartments from debris of bungalows.

            City resident Mamta Gupta filed a special leave petition (SLP) in the Supreme Court. The division bench of Justice L Nageswara Rao and Justice Aniruddha Bose, in its order dated August 9, had issued a notice to the respondents.

            Mention of floor stopped

            The UT administration has issued an order stopping the mention of floor while issuing NoC by UT estate office to banks. Earlier, estate office staff mentioned floor while issuing NoC to bank. According to the latest order, this is against the letter and spirit of the estate law of Chandigarh.

            The office order issued by assistant estate officer (AEO) Harjeet Singh Sandhu reads, “It has been discussed during the meeting with the estate officer, UT, on August 19, that the estate office is mentioning share as well as floor while issuing NoC to banks for loans, which is against the letter and spirit of the estate law of Chandigarh as fragmentation of property is not allowed. So, it is circulated that fragmentation of property is not allowed in Chandigarh and there is a specific percentage of share of applicant for e.g. 20%, 30% or 50% share in the whole estate.”

              Only 32 properties sold in Chandigarh housing board auction

              Even reduction in reserve prices failed to produce the desired effect during the auction. The board had reduced reserve price of commercial units on leasehold basis by 20% and residential units on leasehold basis by 10%.
              CHANDIGARH: Chandigarh Housing Board (CHB) received poor response to its auction of 163 leasehold properties, including commercial and residential and 28 residential freehold properties. Out of 191 properties, CHB could auction only 32, including nine residential freehold; four residential leasehold and 19 commercial leasehold units.

              Even reduction in reserve prices failed to produce the desired effect during the auction. The board had reduced reserve price of commercial units on leasehold basis by 20% and residential units on leasehold basis by 10%. It earned Rs 16.29 crore against the total reserve price of sold units of Rs 14.54 crore.

              The board did not receive good response to auction of its commercial and residential properties in the previous auction as well. It had invited e-tenders for sale of 149 commercial units and 33 residential units on leasehold basis. Out of 149 commercial units, CHB could sell only two to highest bidders.

              The total reserve price of the two commercial units was Rs 1.06 crore while the units were sold for Rs 1.09 crore. Out of 33 residential units, only two could be sold to the highest bidders. Total reserve price of both units was Rs 89.83 lakh, while highest bids received against these units were of Rs 90.85 lakh.

              Recently, chief executive officer (CEO), Chandigarh Housing Board (CHB), Yashpal Garg wrote a letter to the CHB chief engineer, asking him to fix responsibility of officers concerned and their supervisory authorities for laxity and negligence in the care and maintenance of these vacant units, which the board now found difficult to auction.

              The letter was written after an inspection by board CEO Yashpal Garg, during which it was found that many CHB properties had been lying vacant and neglected for 30 to 40 years. These were in bad shape and in some, floors were covered with an over one foot layer of bird droppings.

              Board CEO Yashpal Garg wrote that since many of the vacant units were constructed about 30 to 40 years back and there was almost no care and maintainence, most of them were in bad shape. He pointed out that some of the units were in such a dilapidated condition that they were a risk to life and public property. Because of the poor care and maintainence of vacant units, the CHB could not sell them and now required considerable exependiture for their repair.

                Punjab & Haryana HC upholds share wise sale of houses in Chandigarh

                “Fragmentation of a site/building has to entail an element of permanent severance. Mere construction of three floors on a private plot and utilisation of the same as independent units would not amount to fragmentation. CHANDIGARH: The Punjab and Haryana high court on Tuesday dismissed the petition filed by Resident Welfare Association (RWA), Sector 10, challenging share and floor-wise sale of residential properties in the city.

                The high court on September 30 had reserved its judgment for final order.

                “Fragmentation of a site/building has to entail an element of permanent severance. Mere construction of three floors on a private plot and utilisation of the same as independent units would not amount to fragmentation.

                Fragmentation will take place only if there is a division of the site or division of the building with an element of exclusive ownership i.e. partition by metes and bounds and which in turn stands prohibited by virtue of rule 16 of the Estate Rules,” the high court said.

                “A person who is in possession of a floor or a part of the building is merely a coowner in exclusive possession of a part of the property and the same does not amount to partitioning. To conclude sale of share (s) by owner or co-sharer of a residential site/building is not prohibited under the 1952 Act or rules framed there under. A sale of share does not amount to fragmentation… a co-owner can occupy specific/separate portions of the joint holding.

                The status of such property/building would remain joint and such joint status would come to an end only upon severance of ownership. Such severance of ownership can only be by way of partition by metes and bounds which in turn would fall within the scope and ambit of the term 'fragmentation’,” the order further stated.

                On apartments, the HC order clarified, “It clearly emerges from a perusal of the rules that for being recognized as an “apartment” or to express that the activity of “apartmentalization” is being carried out in the city, certain pre-requisites have to be met, i.e. there has to be a sub division of a building duly recognised by the estate officer along with proportionate share in common areas and common facilities; each sub division of a building to be a distinct, identifiable property to which the owner/lessee shall have title; the recognition of each sub division as an apartment by the estate officer would be accorded by way of a fresh letter of allotment or a fresh conveyance deed and pursuant to such recognition such sub division/apartment to be the sole and exclusive property of the declared owner/lessee.

                However, in the matter at hand all of the pre-requisites noticed hereinabove are missing. By virtue of sale of share(s) by a co-owner and thereafter the purchaser/vendee occupying a specific portion of the building on the basis of an internal arrangement/understanding, “sub division of building” as laid down under the Apartment Rules 2001 does not take place.

                The specific portion under the occupation of a co-owner is not accorded any recognition by the estate officer in any manner and neither does the co-owner become the sole and exclusive owner of such specific portion under his occupation”.

                “We reject the contention raised on behalf of the petitioner that occupation/ possession of a specific portion be it a floor of a joint property by a co-owner amounts to ‘apartmentalization’,” the HC order said.

                  Chandigarh administration okays adoption of model tenancy act

                  UT adviser Dharam Pal said that they have considered all objections and suggestions, and the file will soon be sent to UT administrator Banwarilal Purohit for final approval. The UT will then issue a final notification, he said.
                  CHANDIGARH: The UT administration has okayed the adoption of Model Tenancy Act approved by the Union cabinet in June this year.

                  UT adviser Dharam Pal said that they have considered all objections and suggestions, and the file will soon be sent to UT administrator Banwarilal Purohit for final approval. The UT will then issue a final notification, he said.

                  The administration has started the process to implement Model Tenancy Act in October 2020. The administration had sought objections and suggestions from the public on the draft of the Act.

                  With the implementation of the Act, a rent authority will be established for regulating renting out of premises and to balance interests of owner and tenant by establishing adjudicating mechanism for speedy dispute redressal. A rent court and a tribunal will be set up to hear appeals and related matters.

                  The rent authority will have exclusive jurisdiction over tenancy issues. All rent agreements will have to be submitted to it. The landowner and the tenant will have to separately file particulars within a month of signing the agreement. At present, these can be registered at the subregistrar’s office.

                  In 2019, the administration had sent the Centre’s Model Tenancy Act, 2019, and the draft of the Chandigarh Tenancy Act, 2019, to the ministry of home affairs to take the final call on the tenancy Act to be implemented in the city. In June 2019, the UT had prepared a draft of the Tenancy Act based on the Centre’s Model Tenancy Act, 2015. But the Centre proposed a new Model Tenancy Act in August 2019.
