CORAM:- HON'BLE MR. JUSTICE VINEY MITTAL
HON'BLE MR. JUSTICE H.S.BHALLA
PRESENT: Shri Sanjay Bansal, Advocate for the petitioners.
Shri Sanjeev Sharma, Advocate for the PUDA.
Prayer made in the present application is allowed.
Annexures P.10 and P.11 are taken on record.
At the outset, Shri Sanjay Bansal, the learned counsel appearing for the petitioners states that the petitioners were allotted alternative plots in the year 2001. The petitioners have also deposited 25% of the costs of the aforesaid plot. However, the actual physical possession of the plots has not been handed over to the petitioners so far. Shri Bansal, however, concedes that besides 25% of the costs of the plots, remaining amount has not been deposited by the petitioners so far. In these circumstances, Shri Bansal states that the petitioners shall deposit the entire sale consideration with regard to the aforesaid plots on or before August 10,2006 with the competent authority. Shri Bansal, however, requests that the petitioners be granted some CM No.3958 of 2006 and
breathing time to vacate the residential houses, which are in occupation of the petitioners.
Shri Sanjeev Sharma, the learned counsel appearing for the respondent-PUDA states that the possession of the plots shall be handed over to the allottee within a period of one week of the deposit of the remaining amount by such allottees.
In view of the aforesaid statement of the learned counsel for the parties, we dispose of the present petition with a liberty to the petitioners to deposit the entire balance amount of consideration with regard to the allotted plots on or before August 10,2006. Within one week thereafter, the actual physical possession of the said plots shall be handed over to the allottees. The allottees shall be entitled to remain in possession of the existing residential houses upto September 30,2006. After the aforesaid date, the respondents would be at liberty to demolish the said houses.
At this stage, we also note an undertaking given by Shri Sanjay Bansal, the learned counsel appearing for the petitioners that the petitioners shall have no claim on the residential houses in their occupation after September 30,2006 and shall voluntarily and willingly vacate the same.
We also make it clear that in any case the entire sale consideration is not deposited by the allottees on or before August 10,2006, then in such a situation, the allotment made in their favour CM No.3958 of 2006 and
with regard to the plots in question shall automatically stand cancelled and the present petition shall also be deemed to have been dismissed.
