New Delhi: The Delhi High Court today issued
a contempt notice to the Registrar and the Deputy Registrar
Co-operative Societies for their repeated failure to comply
with its direction to hold the draw for allotment of flats in
more than 50 societies.
A Division Bench of Justice A K Sikri and Justice Reva
Khetrapal sought their reply by July 29 on a batch of
petitions filed by a group of societies here.
Earlier, the Bench had asked RCS (Registrar of
Co-operative Societies) that thousands of genuine flat
allottees were waiting to take possession and it should
therefore speed up its scrutiny.
The court had also sought a comprehensive status report
form RCS as to why it was lagging behind after CBI gave
Acting on the basis of a CBI clean chit, the court
had granted permission to RCS to hold a draw of lots so that
original allottees in some societies could get possession of
their houses at the earliest.
The court had ordered a CBI inquiry into the functioning
of RCS following a scam involving its officials and the
society members in 2006.
