      Realtor sentenced to life for duping 250 people

      TNN / Jun 4, 2022, 03:08 IST


      Bhopal: A sessions court here sentenced a person to life imprisonment for cheating more than 250 people of crores of rupee by "selling" them plots on the airport road using fake documents, which they never got. A lookout notice was issued for him after he went missing and he was arrested from Indore airport while he was trying to escape abroad. The court also slapped a fine of Rs 20,000 on the accused.

      Public prosecutor, Nisar Ahmed Mansoori, who appeared in the case for the prosecution, said that the accused Ramakant Vijayvargiya had signed a sale deed with Maharaj Singh, Dileep Singh, Rambai and some more farmers for purchase of 25 acre land for development. at a rate of Rs 20 lakh per acre. The agreement was for 6 years and he was supposed to pay the entire amount of land in 6 months.

      Agreement for half the land was in the name of a company and the rest in the name of M/s Ram Buildcon, the company he ran with a partner. He cheated on his partner, causing the other company to back out of the agreement.

      He later prepared a fake layout plan of the proposed colony and without carrying out development work, sold the land to more than 250 buyers in the form of housing plots. The buyers never got the plot they were promised and with the crores of rupee he collected from them against sale of plots, he disappeared. Since he cheated on the farmers, who owned the land, they cancelled the sale deed and attorney letter given to him.

      After he went missing, a lookout notice was issued for him and he was arrested from Indore airport while he was trying to escape abroad, said Mansoori. There were 31 prosecution witnesses in the case and 2 defence witnesses. The prosecution also presented several documents to support their case against the accused Convinced by the evidence produced by the prosecution, the sessions court held the accused guilty and sentenced him to life under sections 467, 468 and 420 of the IPC and also slapped a fine of Rs 20,000.

        About 500 houses 'dilapidated', tough time ahead for Bhopal civic body


        Last count by the Bhopal Municipal Corporation (BMC) identified around 500 buildings as dilapidated. Demolition is not an outright option, given most of these structures are under litigation, according to BMC.


        BHOPAL: An estimated 2.8% of city housing is dilapidated in the state capital going by the last census of 2011. Monsoon is on the horizon and civic body emergency call centre is once again bracing up for the worst.

        Last count by the Bhopal Municipal Corporation (BMC) identified around 500 buildings as dilapidated. Demolition is not an outright option, given most of these structures are under litigation, according to BMC. If the census is to be accounted, the number of dangerous housing would be much higher.

        The risk is high too. In urban areas increases the flood peaks to 1.8 to 8 times and flood volumes up to 6 times going by NDMA guidelines. It was visible in 2016 and again in 2018, where heavy spell of rain in short span of time inundated low laying areas.

        Given pre-monsoon activity civic body has listed out help numbers and detailed plan for 24x7 emergency support.

        BMC commissioner KVS Chaudary issued orders to set up a main emergency control room to deal with the emergency situation like heavy rain or flooding during the rainy season.

        Each year a survey of dilapidated housing is carried out. However, BMC officials admit if the risk to public is determined, litigation would not come in way of old buildings being demolished.

        Despite the threat, BMC has been reluctant in acting against the in the city. Several incidents have been reported in the past regarding the collapse of residential and official structures claiming lives of residents.

          Land sold after undertaking development activities should attract 18% GST: Madhya Pradesh AAAR

          Read more at:
          https://realty.economictimes.indiati...-aaar/93200295



          Any land sold after undertaking development activities such as providing water line, electricity or sanitation facility should attract 18% GST, Madhya Pradesh AAAR ruled.


          Many land transactions are set to attract goods and services tax (GST) following an appellate authority of advance ruling (AAAR) ruling that distinguished between "developed land" and "barren land".

          This means that if the developer or seller has done any work on the land parcel before selling it, then that could attract GST.

          Any land sold after undertaking development activities such as providing water line, electricity or sanitation facility should attract 18% GST, Madhya Pradesh AAAR ruled.

          It set aside an order of Madhya Pradesh Authority for Advance Ruling (AAR) that said sale of developed land is not liable to GST as the transaction is transfer of immovable property which is outside the purview of indirect tax.

          "This is another instance of divergent ruling by different state authorities," said Harpreet Singh, indirect tax partner at KPMG in India. "In the past, Madhya Pradesh and Goa advance ruling authorities have held sale of developed land as non-taxable as in essence the transaction continues to be sale of immovable property."

          Madhya Pradesh AAR had earlier ruled out the applicability of GST on sale of developed land, holding that it "cannot be bought and sold as something distinct and separate from the plot of land" and, therefore, GST is not applicable on such sale.

          The AAAR ruling, however, said the real estate developer selling the land had developed roads and provided water supply before selling the land parcel. And that the sale "cannot be imagined without these basic development activities".

          Tax experts said there could be an alternate argument as well.

          "There is a strong alternate argument that improvements on barren land are done only to make the same saleable, and that should not change the essential character of the transaction from supply of land to construction service, especially when the buyers were not pre-determined at the time of improvements," Singh said.

            Implement PMAY-G, else will reconsider funding other projects: Centre to Chhattisgarh

            Read more at:
            https://realty.economictimes.indiati...sgarh/93373390



            In a letter to Chhattisgarh Chief Secretary Amitabh Jain, Rural Development Secretary Nagendra Nath Sinha has mentioned that the state government has not shown satisfactory progress despite several letters and meetings in this connection.


            NEW DELHI: The Centre has cautioned the Congress-led Chhattisgarh government that the Union Rural Development Ministry "shall be compelled to reconsider its support to its other core schemes" if it fails to duly implement the rural housing scheme. The Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna-Gramin (PMAY-G) has been implemented from April 1, 2016, with an objective of providing "Housing for All" by March 2024.

            In a letter to Chhattisgarh Chief Secretary Amitabh Jain, Rural Development Secretary Nagendra Nath Sinha has mentioned that the state government has not shown satisfactory progress despite several letters and meetings in this connection.

            "If the state is unable to implement PMAY-G..., the ministry shall be compelled to reconsider its support to other core Rural Development (Ministry) schemes/programmes," Sinha said in the letter.

            He said despite several rounds of communication from "various levels of the Union Ministry to the Chhattisgarh government, it has neither shown satisfactory progress nor released the due state share of Rs 562 crore, as a result of which the work of PMAY-G has come to a standstill in the state, a situation, which you are well aware of".

            Underlining that the scheme is implemented on the ground level by state governments, Sinha said Chhattisgarh in 2020-21 withdrew majority of the 6.48 lakh houses allocated to it "due to difficulty in releasing the corresponding state share."

            In 2021-22, the Rural Development Ministry was compelled to withdraw the allocated target of nearly 7.82 lakh houses, again due to the state's inability in releasing its share, amounting to Rs 562 crore, Sinha added.

              Metro, flyover projects throw traffic out of gear in Bhopal

              Sudeept Mishra & Ashutosh Shukla / TNN / Updated: Aug 6, 2022, 11:56 IST


              Traffic on the stretch of road from Ganesh Mandir tri-section in Arera Colony to Jinsi square has been in a complete mess due to construction of the metro project and a flyover on the route for over two years.

              BHOPAL: Traffic on the stretch of road from Ganesh Mandir tri-section in Arera Colony to Jinsi square has been in a complete mess due to construction of the metro project and a flyover on the route for over two years.

              The metro work was limited to Maida Mill Road before the outbreak of Covid with traffic police resorting to traffic diversion and closure of roads on occasions but in course of time, it has stretched further beyond Mansarovar complex and construction of a flyover from MP Nagar to Savarkar over-bridge at the same time has worsened the situation further.

              Diversion of traffic at one place or the other also disrupts traffic as commuters are often not aware which road is closed and till when it’s going to remain closed. As of now, the road from Maida Mill to Jinsi Square is closed for over a fortnight due to construction of the Metro depot and those coming from Jinsi to MP Nagar have to take alternative routes.

              People are ready to pay the price for development but there are certain questions they ask on the prolonged traffic congestion.

              “I don’t understand the urgency to start construction of a flyover on the same stretch of road where metro work is taking place. I feel the flyover is not required. If at all it’s required, it could have waited," said a retired superintendent engineer of PWD.

              People wonder when construction will end and their agony would be over.
              Traffic police admit that construction work of Metro project, flyover and at some places laying of gas pipeline have made traffic a mess in MP Nagar, the commercial hub of the city.

              They say that the development works will improve the traffic condition in the long run, but it has become a challenge for them to manage the situation at present.

              So, traffic police issue permission to make diversions as and when needed by the construction agencies. But police feel construction work is often not carried out in an organised way, especially by PWD. They start work at multiple points without having proper resources and commuters have to face problems. Dug-up roads remain that way for a long time, said an officer.

              Besides, the agencies often do not put up signages properly. So, police have to write letters and ask them to do the same. Sometimes they put up barricades for a long period of time without need. In front of Rani Kamlapati station, the road is blocked for a long time, they say.

              Laying of pipeline is also carried out in the area by a construction agency near Govindpura turning, Habibganj square, Prabhat square and other spots. Apart from these agencies, another agency is applying for permission to construct Metro stations. So, traffic police is supposed to deal with all of them at the same time.

              Another senior officer said that a force of around 70-80 traffic cops manage traffic from Ganesh Mandir till Jehangirabad via Board Office. He said that police have to face many problems at Pragati Petrol Pump Square, Board Office, Gurudev Gupt Square, Prabhat Square, Pul Bogda, Ganesh Mandir and Mansarovar Square. The diversions cause traffic snarls at these major crossings.

              DCP (traffic) Hansraj Singh said the metro project will be beneficial for the city in the long run. Apart from that PWD is constructing a flyover while the laying of a pipeline is also being done. So, whenever they request for diversion, police issue permission.
