Chandigarh housing board’s secretary told to appear before HC
The Punjab and Haryana high court has directed secretary of the Chandigarh Housing Board to appear before it on the next date of hearing in a case related to self-financing housing scheme for UT employees. The high court has asked about the status of this scheme and how and when it was going to be implemented.
The high court was informed last year by the Chandigarh administration that 11.795 acres would be allotted to the housing board for the said project and for this the high court has directed the Chandigarh Housing Board secretary to appear before it by May 23.
The self-financing housing scheme for the UT employees was announced nearly a decade ago, but it has remained on paper. This matter is also pending before the high court that had earlier rapped the UT administration a number of times for this.
