PRAYAGRAJ, September 14 (HS): The Prayagraj Development Authority (PDA) has devised a one-of-its-kind scheme called Mission Sangam to realise the unfulfilled dreams of those who have been chasing after land allotted to them for more than three decades. 550 PDA allotees would benefit from the scheme. Preparations have been made to implement the scheme, which was the brainchild of PDA's new vice-chairman, Arvind Chauhan.
“Under this, a converted plot will be provided in the nearest residential scheme based on the availability of the plot in the same housing scheme or in the case of non-availability of the plot in that housing scheme. The Authority's goal is to offer plots to allottees who have been unable to obtain their allotted plots, as soon as possible,” Chauhan said. He added that the information for such allottees has been posted on the PDA website. The initiative would assist allottees who have not yet received ownership of their land owing to a land dispute, court case, delay, encroachment on the site, building, or other reasons.
The VC went on to say that a proposal to convert the plots to other undisputed plots or return the money with interest is in the works as a one-time solution to the allottees' difficulties. “First and foremost, all available plots will be posted on the authority's website and pasted on the authority's information board, together with any potential increase or decrease in area. Within one week, letters will be received from eligible allottees in the prescribed format for consent and disagreement, which can be found on the authority's website. The process of changing plots will be done through lottery on the scheduled date, in order to ensure complete transparency,” explains Chauhan.
The date of the lottery will be announced on the authority's website and in the press, and following the change, the list will be posted on the authority's website and pasted on an information board for public viewing, with the change letter being sent by registered mail, he added.
