Consumer forum:No notification issued by Chandigarh on plot conversion ban


By Accommodation Times Bureau

The UT administration has failed to produce a notification suspending conversions of residential plots from leasehold to freehold, the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission has observed while dismissing a revision petition.

The administration had challenged an order dated May 16, 2016, passed by the commission directing it to convert a residential plot of a Sector 46 resident. Throughout the proceedings, the administration stuck to its stand that a ban on such conversion had been imposed. However, it failed to produce a notification issued by a competent authority.

The counsel appearing on behalf of the administration argued that the forum committed material illegality in ignoring a vital fact that the complainant’s application for conversion was received by the estate office on April 29, 2013, and by that time a decision had been taken not to permit conversion as charges were not fixed.
