HYDERABAD: A High Court division bench comprising chief justice Madan B Lokur and justice PV Sanjay Kumar directed the authorities of Rajiv Swagruha Corporation on Saturday not to resort to coercive steps against the allottees of Rajiv Swagruha homes.
The bench further directed that there would be no validity if the corporation resorted to cancellation of allotments made to those who had already paid money or sale of flats to new buyers in their place.
The case was posted for further hearing to January 20. Dealing with a writ petition, the chief justice noted that any action by the corporation authorities against the allottees would have no validity as the arguments in the case were still going on in the court. The respondent, Arambha Rajeev Swagruha Welfare Association, has already paid about Rs 10 lakh for a double bedroom flat and Rs 7 lakh for a single bedroom flat, and the corporation should not therefore resort to cancellation of allotments and sale of the flats to others, he said.
The welfare association moved the court for a direction to the corporation for immediate handover of flats allotted to them as the members had already paid the money. It said that they had come to know that some of the flats were sold by the corporation without the consent of the allottees concerned. They urged the court to see that the corporation gave the 25 percent state government's mandatory concession. The corporation, which had to bear 34 percent interest in construction of 254 flats, should not add that amount to the cost of flats allotted to members of the association, it said.
