The new colony, ‘Shaayam Sarovar’, was being developed by another housing society, the Kirti Nagar Housing Cooperative Society, allegedly by issuing fake lease deeds (pattas).
Triyambak Singh, who owns a plot in Raman Vihar alleged, “The records of our housing society were submitted to JDA in 1994. The Kirti Nagar Housing Cooperative Society submitted its record in 2012. The dispute is pending in court and stay on construction or development has been granted till the matter is resolved. The other colony members have demolished our plot boundaries and taking forceful possession. We have also lodged a complaint in the JDA, but no action has been taken.”
An official at JDA’s enforcement wing said, “The dispute has occurred due to overlapping of khasra. Site inspection was also conducted on Monday. The complaint will be examined after checking the land records.”
It has been witnessed many colonies are being recently developed in PRN scheme even after the Rajasthan High Court ban. In October 2010, the court banned all constructions in the area till the JDA prepares a plan for its systematic development.
However, after land prices increased, land mafias are developing new colonies. Atul Pareek, another plot owner said, “To show maximum plots are in possession of Shaayam Sarovar land owners, the powerful land grabbers are removing plot boundaries and taking forceful possession. Once, they uproot us, a demand for PT survey will be made in JDA.”
Giriraj Singh Khangarot, president of Prithviraj Nagar Sanyukt Jan Sangharsh Samiti said, “Pritivi Raj Nagar was initially developed after land of 22 revenue villages was acquired. Owners in several colonies are facing these disputes. Farmers who have sold their plots and developed housing societies earlier are purposely raising some technical issue to cancel the agreement. They later themselves sell their lands again on new rates.”
