The government of Haryana is all set to recover the land that was leased to the Rajiv Gandhi Charitable Trust (RGCT) for the construction of an eye hospital in Gurgaon eight years ago. The Haryana Department of Town & Country Planning (DTCP) recently rejected the occupation certificate that was granted to the trust which is being headed by the Congress Chief Sonia Gandhi and Vice President Rahul Gandhi. The land that was leased for the hospital measures 19477.70 sq m (approximately 4.8 acres) in Khasra No. 71 that is located in the revenue estate of Ullawas in Gurgaon and it was leased to RGCT in the year 2009. The land was leased by the gram panchayat of Ullawas under permission by the Panchayats Department. According to an Indian Express report, the senior town planner in Gurgaon have been asked by the Department of Town & Country Planning has to “take further steps required in pursuance to the rejection of application and send action taken report to this office.”

In a letter issued by DTCP to the Principal Secretary, Panchayats Department, the former has informed the latter about the reason behind the rejection of the “occupation certificate”. The letter said, “One of the conditions was to put the leased land to the permitted use within two years from the commencement of lease period which stands expired on 07.01.2012 and applicant has failed to comply with it… it is requested to take further action as per terms and conditions of lease deed.”

According to sources, as quoted by the Indian Express, “DTCP, while noting that the RGCT failed to construct on the land — it was to complete construction of the hospital by January 7, 2012 — despite repeated extensions, described it as a violation of the lease conditions and rejected the land occupation certificate. The Panchayats Department will now take further action to repossess the land.”

    Let rule of the Land prevail over for one and all. This is the true sprit of democracy. Haryana Government should strive to put this land for the benefit of common man of Haryana and nearby states.
