bombayhighcourtThe Bombay High Court in the case of illegal allotment of flats under the Chief Minister’s discretionary housing quota, has granted some more time to the Urban Development Department and Housing Department for submitting the files to the inquiry committee.

During the hearing Justice A S Oka and A K Menon, said, “On request from both the departments, we are providing some additional time to them for submitting the files, five weeks time to UDD and eight weeks time to Housing Department. And if time span is not considered seriously, actions will be taken.”

Though the committee had previously also issued letter to court stating that non-submission of files by the departments is effecting the inquiry process, HC has allotted the additional time span.

Following the extension for the file submission, court has extended the deadline of inquiry committee for submitting its report by July last week, instead of earlier date of April last week. The court has also ordered the state government to issue a government resolution within three weeks for extension of the term of the enquiry committee.
