Adarsh society: Interim probe report submitted
Mumbai: The interim report of a two-member commission probing the Adarsh Housing Society scam in Mumbai was submitted to the Maharashtra government Friday, official sources said.
The report by the commission, comprising Justice (retd.) J.A. Patil and former state chief secretary P. Subrahmanyam, was submitted here in a sealed envelop to the chief secretary.
The scam involves a prime plot in south Mumbai`s Colaba neighbourhood on which a 31-storey building was constructed by the society.
The report is expected to contain the commission`s final findings on two critical issues, out of total 13, over the building of Adarsh Cooperative Housing Society in Colaba.
These (two issues) are: the ownership of the plot was allotted to the Adarsh society, and whether it was meant for housing war heroes and Kargil conflict`s widows.
The interim report followed a plea by the state government in February, seeking clarifications on these two vital points.
The state government had claimed ownership of the building`s plot which it said was reclaimed from the Arabian Sea in the 1970s.
Disputing the claim, the defence ministry contended that the plot allotted to Adarsh society had been in its possession since the past four decades.
The report will be discussed by the state cabinet before any further steps are taken.
