An inquiry should be conducted on the delay in the allotment of plots to over 25,000 waiting applicants of Rohini Residential Scheme, 1981 and the responsibility for the delay should be fixed and action should be taken against the official responsible for the delay. In the Maha Sammelan organized today at Govindam, Sector-7, Dwarka, Delhi demand was raised to allot plots to all the wait-listed applicants forthwith, restoration the plot sizes as applied for at the time of the launch of the scheme and the to allot plots on the undisputed and litigation free land. The Sammelan was organized by the Association of Waiting Registrants of Rohini Residential Scheme. The following resolution was passed unanimously:
“We have waited 31 years for our plots under the DDA Rohini Residential Scheme 1981. 31 years over which we have little faith in the DDA and all our faith now rests in the courts. We thank Mr. Rahul Gupta for championing our cause in court and bringing us hope that, despite the DDA’ssustained efforts to deny us our plots, there may still be hope, if not for the generation that waited three decades, then at least for our children.
We demand the Hon’ble Court to order the DDA to allot fully developed plots to all remaining 25,360 registrants forthwith in accordance with the Rohini Residential Scheme, 1981. We are confident that the courts of the land will come to our aid and address the injustice perpetuated against us, and in this we acknowledge our faith in Shri Rahul Gupta who has been doggedly representing our cause in court. We thank him for his efforts and request Shri Rahul Gupta, Petitioner in the Public Interest Litigation [W.P.(C): 8765/2009] to present this resolution before the Hon’ble bench of Delhi High Court hearing the PIL.”
Shri Rahul Gupta, vigorously fighting for the applicants, said that in the last 31 years, a large number of applicants have left this world waiting for their plots in the scheme. He also said that in the past, DDA even tried to scrap this scheme. DDA had promised to allot plots within five years to the projected applicants of 1,17,000 but has miserably failed to allot the same to little over 82,000 applicants.
Speaking in the meeting, M. K. Gupta, convener said that the DDA has duped the applicants, it is neither honouring the commitments made to the Court nor the commitment made in both Houses of Parliament by the Urban Development Minister in the last 15 years. He said that about double land than required has been acquired by the DDA in the name of the scheme and over 200 hectares land has been encroached upon due to the carelessness of the DDA and Delhi Govt.
Shri Rajesh Gahlot, Board Member, DDA and Ex. Dy. Mayor of Delhi, Dwarka Forum and Association of Suffering Members have extended their support for the cause of the members. On the occasion, participants felicitated Shri Rahul Gupta and Advocate, fighting Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in Delhi High Court, Shri Mayank Misra were also honoured.
This was the first such meeting and was attended by the large number of applicants coming all the way from far flung areas including Lucknow, Bhiwani, Ludhiana, Agra, Mohali, Panipat etc. and all were desperate over the attitude of the DDA and Govt.
