On the high court’s directions, the UT administration submitted an affidavit of assistant estate officer (AEO) Harjeet Singh Sandhu.
The court, on Wednesday, had directed the administration to submit the affidavit after petitioners’ claim that the UT had issued an NOC for floor-wise registry and they also submitted details of the certificate issued for that specific property. Accordingly, UT was asked to file an affidavit and the hearing was deferred till Thursday.
The affidavit said, “During the course of hearing on September 20, issue pertaining to NOC advanced to a house in Sector 27-A was raised, wherein the petitioners alleged that the UT administration is giving NOCs share-wise, categorically mentioning the floors as well.
The NOC was issued to co-sharers on account of a lien being created on their shares. It is important to mention here that on the request of the Punjab and Sindh Bank, after creation of charge on the property, the charge/lien was noted and taken on record for necessary action on the property records.”
