By Accommodation Times Bureau


The court sentenced builder for two years imprisonment last week for cheating the government by not giving 12 flats as was agreed under the Urban Land Ceiling and Regulation Act (ULCRA).

Under ULCRA the government gave permission to carry out construction in Dahisar land. But, the builder (Harishankar Kayal) only gave 3 flats to government and rest sold to others.

“I have come to the conclusion that the property was handed over to the accused who sold it in the open market and obtained consideration with fraudulent intention. Therefore, the prosecution has proved beyond reasonable doubt the offence against the accused”, the magistrate court held.
