      Madhya Pradesh RERA chief, other posts vacant for months

      On September 25, the state government had ended the term of RERA chairman Anthony de Sa. At least three more important officials have been removed in the past three months and the posts haven’t been filled.
      BHOPAL: The Madhya Pradesh Real Estate Regulation Authority (RERA) continues to remain leaderless. For the past five months, there has been no chairman, member (technical) or IT consultant.

      On September 25, the state government had ended the term of RERA chairman Anthony de Sa. At least three more important officials have been removed in the past three months and the posts haven’t been filled.

      RERA is the agency set up in each state to safeguard interests of property buyers. It came into existence in MP on May 1, 2017, and this is the first time that it is in such a rudderless state. The vacancies will pinch the common man as most of the complaints in RERA are related to delayed possession, say sources.

      Anthony de Sa, a former chief secretary, was appointed the first RERA chairman by the BJP government in 2016.

      Officials told TOI that the process to appoint a new RERA chairman is on and the urban administration and development department has advertised for the post. Apart from chairperson, the department has also invited candidates for the post of member-technical.

      The criteria for post of chairman are that the applicant should be an IAS officer of MP cadre, who retired as chief secretary, additional chief secretary or principal secretary after January 1, 2020, and on or before December 31, 2021.

      For the post of member (technical), the applicant should have 15 years’ experience in urban development, real estate development, infrastructure development or planning. If the applicant is or has been in service of the state government, they should have retired after January 1, 2020, or will retire before December 31, 2021. Officials said February 8 is the last date for applications.

          HOME TOUR: What does a Rs 4,000 crore home look like?


          The Xennial

          Wed, 2 June, 2021, 11:02 am·4-min read

          The Jai Vilas Palace in Gwalior is the seat of the Scindia royal family. Commissioned by Jayaji Rao Scindia to welcome King George V and Queen Mary who visited India in 1876.

          Designed and built by Sir Michael Filose, construction on the palace was completed in 1874, well in time for the royal couple’s arrival.

          Said to be inspired by the Palace of Versailles, the Jai Vilas Palace has three distinct styles of architecture: Tuscan on the ground floor, Italian-Doric on the first, and Corinthian on the second.
          The three diverse architectural styles blend together seamlessly in the Jai Vilas Palace. Jayaji Rao Scindia is said to have spent a crore to build this majestic building in 19th century.

          By some estimates it would cost over Rs 4,000 crore to build it today.
          A part of the palace has been open to the public since the mid-60s but the remainder of the palace continues to serve as the official residence of the Scindia family.

          The current maharaja, albeit titular, is Jyotiraditya Scindia.
          The museum in the palace offers some insight into just how lavish a lifestyle the Scindia family may have led. Almost as soon as you enter the palace you will be greeted by a railway coach that was designed by Rolls Royce.

          The Scindias and the railways have a long history. What was originally a 22-km private tramway was extended to a nearly 55-km route used to bring in supplies to relieve the famine. Over time, the Gwalior Light Railway, as it was called then, was renamed to Scindia State Railway before being sold to and merged with the Indian Railways is 1951.
          The connection of railways to the Scindia family extended right up to Jyotiraditya Scindia’s late father, Madhavrao Scindia who was the Minister of State for Railways in the Rajiv Gandhi cabinet.

          Paying homage to this legacy is a model train made of solid silver that runs along the length of a 42-seater dining table. The ingenious invention served as a vehicle for brandy and cigars at the end of a formal dinner.
          Indeed the dining room itself is among the larger rooms of the Jai Vilas Palace but doesn’t match the grandeur of the Durbar Hall which measures more than 5,000 square feet alone and has two 12.5 m high 3.5 tonne chandeliers and a handwoven carpet that supposedly took 12 years to complete.

          The ornate hall as over 560 kg of gold that’s been used as part of the room’s décor.
          In all there are some 200-odd rooms in the palace some of which served as bedrooms while others as lounges, nurseries, libraries, etc. There’s also an indoor swimming pool that, when in use, was restricted to the women of the household. Of the 200 rooms, the museum occupies 35 of them.

          Among the things you can see as part of the museum are rare paintings – both Mughal and European as well as silver and gold accessories, Persian rugs, vintage cars, palanquins, and photographs and lithographs. Swords belonging to the Mughal emperors Aurangzeb and Shahjahan as well as a shield belonging to Laxmibai, the queen of Jhansi are on display.

              The housing complex was developed around 2016. According to BMC sources, some of the beneficiaries have sublet the accommodation, which is illegal as per the agreement.

                EOW starts probe into Bhopal smart city land tenders

                It has been alleged that the tendering process on commercial plots was made complex to benefit select builders and despite the fact that only two bidders were participating in each of the tenders, BSCDCL failed to initiate a competitive tendering mechanism.
                BHOPAL: Madhya Pradesh economic offences wing (EOW) has initiated a probe into a complaint alleging transparency issues, corruption and criminal conspiracy in plots sold on freehold basis for Area Based Developed (ABD) Area of Bhopal Smart City Development Corporation Limited (BSCDCL).

                It has been alleged that the tendering process on commercial plots was made complex to benefit select builders and despite the fact that only two bidders were participating in each of the tenders, BSCDCL failed to initiate a competitive tendering mechanism.

                While BSCDCL CEO Aditya Singh could not be contacted for his version, another official – who is said to have played a key role in the tendering process – denied any wrongdoings.

                “We have all documents to prove the transparency adopted by BSCDCL,” said the officer, wishing not to be quoted. However, when he was asked to share relevant documents, he refused having it in his possession.

                Under investigations are tenders invited for Plot Number- 79 (A), 80 and 83. Base price of these plots were Rs 63.80 cr, Rs 70.75 cr and Rs 73.96 cr respectively.

                "Tenders were not called for the second time and the bid was opened in the first time with just two bidders in stark defiance of set norms, '' the complaint alleges.

                When contacted one of the builders told TOI that “Bids were rigged, incurring huge financial loss to the state government".

                He said there was no clarity on the marginal open space (MOS) area of the plots in the tender documents which created a confusion among participants making it unviable. "However, builders who won the bids were aware of the proposed changes...same was done, "said the builder, wishing anonymity.

                Complaint also refers to the tender of Plot Number-82 as an example of how the government earned more revenue through competitive tendering.

                “The base price of plot number 82 was Rs 29.48 crore. It was not in a prime location, and was one of the smallest one with least financial value. Five bidders came forward for it. Fair competition between the bidders led BSCDCL to earn 20 per cent above its base price amounting to Rs 35.11 cr,” reads the complaint.

                Whereas the other three plots were sold off at only 8 or 9 per cent above the base price causing loss of revenue to the government, which is approximately Rs 35 crore, as per the complaint.

                Complainant claims that the CVC guidelines have been violated. In 2012, CVC had issued a circular asking departments and public sector units to stop single tender procurement, and to make public all such purchases made in recent times. CVC had been emphasising on the need for observing integrity, transparency, fairness and equity in all aspects of decision making including in tendering and award of contracts. These CVC guidelines were based on a Supreme Court order of 2006 which says that absence of an open tendering system was a violation of Article 14 which guarantees right to equality.
