GURGAON: The Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) on Thursday evicted around 70 families from EWS Colony in Sector 47 after they allegedly tried to move into the low-cost houses. Officials said the eviction was done to prevent the alleged slum-dwellers from moving in to the flats, the allotment of which is mired in problems.

Two years after the Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) constructed 500 low-cost flats, over 70 families from slum clusters around the city were removed from EWS colony in Sector 47 on Tuesday. Officials said that it was done to prevent them from moving in due to the allotment of flats being mired in problems.

Built under the Ashiana housing scheme at a cost of Rs 20 crore, HUDA officials did not set a deadline with regard to handing over these 500 low-cost flats to applicants after discrepancies arose in documents relating to BPL eligibility. "It was shocking that the slum-dwellers got inside the colony and wanted to move in. They were removed and we will take legal action, said Pravin Kumar, administrator, HUDA, who termed the incident a bid to encroach on government property.

"We can not allot any flat in the colony without checking records because we don't want ineligible applicants getting the flat. The allotment will be done after checking every document, including BPL cards. Details of each applicant and his family members, biometric, and photographs outside their present houses will be taken. The district administration and HUDA has joined hands to complete the formalities," Kumar said, adding that 300 families have qualified so far.

With each flat pegged at Rs. 15 lakh, there are fears that potential owners may sell it after the allotment process. To prevent such a scenario, HUDA has decided to put a plan in place. "The allotment of flats would be permitted for fixed-term nominal term. The owner will have to renew the lease," said Kumar.
