Delhi government on Monday gave the go ahead for allotment of flats to members of the disputed Cooperative Group Housing Societies. These members have been waiting to shift in their own flats for the last many years due to reported irregularities in providing membership by the Managing Committees.

Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit said that the government has resolved the complex issue of allotment of flats to the members of such societies as most of the societies were under CBI investigation.

The government has instructed the Registrar Cooperative Societies to forward the list of members to DDA for holding draw of lots and regularize the results of self draw subject to certain conditions.

Dikshit added that this decision will definitely bring smiles on the faces of the members awaiting allotment of their flats as they were facing hardships by paying hefty amount while putting up in rented accommodations and making payment of their instalments in respect of their sanctioned loans.

There are 68 Co-operative Societies which are awaiting allotment of flats in Delhi.  Out of which, Delhi government has cleared allotment of flats to 64 societies. These cover both CBI investigated societies as well as societies which have conducted self-draw to resolve the long pending problem.

The CM said that the Registrar Co-operative Societies has accordingly been advised to forward the list of members to DDA for holding draw of lots in respect of 42 CBI investigated societies involving approximately 4000 flats subject to certain reasonable conditions like furnishing of indemnity bond.

Similarly, in remaining 22 societies involving about 2000 flats which has conducted self-draw, it has been decided that DDA will be instructed to regularize their cases. It will be subject to the conduct that the self-draw was transparent and affidavits have been given by the Members and Secretary of the co-operative Societies to the effect that they had no objection to the manner of conduct and outcome of the self-draw.
