Allahabad: The Allahabad High Court today reserved its judgment in connection with the Ghaziabad Development Authority’s (GDA) policy on allotment of plots to ministers and MLAs on preferential basis. A single-judge bench of Justice Sabhajeet Yadav reserved the judgment after hearing the concluding arguments from both sides.
The matter pertained to dismissal of Class-III GDA employee Sharada Prasad in 2004-05. He was accused by the GDA administration of getting a GDA plot fraudulently transferred in the name of his wife from a person who was not his blood relation. Apparently, the GDA had a policy of allotting plots to its employees, which can be transferred to the blood relations, including wife and real brother. However, in his case, the administration said that he had got the plot transferred from a person fraudulently shown as his real brother. He had challenged his dismissal in the High Court in 2005.
During the course of hearing, the court had asked the GDA to explain whether there was any policy for out of turn allotment of plots to the ministers and MLAs. It had also asked the GDA to explain in detail the policy of allotment of plots to its employees and the right to transfer the same to their blood relations.
