New Delhi: Delhi high court on Wednesday gave its nod to Delhi Development Authority to invite tender bids to dispose of 110 flats that the land owning agency intends to auction.
Justice Hima Kohli allowed the DDAs plea seeking permission to auction the flats even as the latter informed the court it has issued completion certificates to 30 out of 34 towers in the Commonwealth Games (CWG) Village and Emaar MGF,the private developer,can now allot the flats to buyers.
Appearing for the agency, additional solicitor general Indira Jaisingh and standing counsel Ajay Verma said on Wednesday morning the conveyance deed for 392 flats has also been executed so that Emaar can allot 392 flats, which are in its share,to the owners after they complete the formalities.
Accepting the agency’s plea, HC then permitted DDA to initiate the process for auctioning off 110 flats spread over three towers (1,9 and 14) for which DDA has invited biddings. Justice Kohli said it was important to ensure those flat owners whose tower was not enmeshed in the legal issue of extra floor access ratio (FAR) and compoundable and non-compoundable FAR be given possession so that the court can then focus on the core issue of excess FAR.Four towers (5,15,25 and 28) are still stuck because of the issue of FAR.
The court was hearing a petition,filed by the CWG flat allottees association,seeking a direction to DDA to issue completion certificates for the flats so that the private builder can give them possession.According to the association,DDA is in possession of the project comprising 1,168 flats in 34 towers,of which 711 are unencumbered flats and no party has any right on them.
