Government Had No Time to Consider Bureaucrats Ratification of Andrews Ganj Land Scam
In the next HUDCO Land Scam Series, the Government Had No Time to Consider Bureaucrats Ratification of Andrews Ganj Land Scam. A legal opinion was taken from the additional legal advisor, along with the Solicitor General, who opined HUDCO should be held liable for concealing pertinent information regarding the bid by MS Shoes. Thereby, confirming the approved award upheld by the Supreme Court in the case of Leela Hotels. In this same period, Leela Hotels was awarded the same consideration by a court order, which has since been paid in full with compounded interest at the contractual rate of interest, and MS Shoes was the same case as it was the same property allotted to MS Shoes before Leela Hotels.
The Appellate Court also upheld the Trial Court’s decision, agreeing that HUDCO defrauded MS Shoes in the same fashion as Leela Hotels. But since they refused to pay MS Shoes the monies owed, they continue to shuffle paperwork from office to office, bypassing the issue at hand. Alborz continues his quest to expose the scams, providing light on HUDCO scams over the past twenty-five years, thereby showing Mr. Pavan Sachdeva’s innocence, bringing the incident to a close. Then seeing MS Shoes receive the amount owed by HUDCO with compounded interest.
One investor, Mr. Zane, from the USA, met with Government officers along with Mr. Pavan Sachdeva and submitted a written proposal to pay the entire balance with interest, but bureaucrats continued to shuttle the file throughout various offices. The Government finally oversaw the settlement proposal, in which HUDCO demanded the dues with 16.48% compounded half-yearly interest, which came to Rs. 1333 crores.
The Ministry admitted discrimination, as Ansals were granted interest-free extensions until the car park basement was regularized, as it was constructed illegally. If Ansals case could be applied in the public interest, the extension according to non-completion by HUDCO, then why not the same treatment applied to MS Shoes. The consequential forfeitures are not valid, nor is the appeal filed by HUDCO. Finally, in the highest-level committee of secretaries and joint secretaries, it was decided MS shoes are refunded the entire amount with interest as paid to Leela Hotels, but the minister did not have time to approve the ratification of the scam recommended by the committee.
