According to the corporation, there are 132 plots of different sizes that have been identified for e-auctioning at Sanjay Gandhi Transport Nagar. These include community centre areas and land near a proposed railway line.
“The plots shall be used for warehousing, godowns and uses related to transport allied business and not used for all the commercial facilities in view of the nature of the Transport Nagar and there will be restricted usages of these plots,” said North Corporation commissioner Sanjay Goel’s letter.
Aam Aadmi Party had earlier accused the BJP-led corporation of selling the plots at ‘throwaway’ prices. BJP councillors are ‘pocketing’ the money by selling public assets owned by the corporation, it alleged.
“The BJP-led North MCD is planning to sell about 132 plots of land in Sanjay Gandhi Transport Nagar at abysmal, throwaway prices – selling them off at circle rates. Even if you walk around the whole of Delhi with a lamp, you will not find a single piece of land at such atrocious rates. The BJP-led North MCD is selling plots in Sanjay Gandhi Transport Nagar at par with circle rates so they can fill their own pockets,” AAP MLA Dilip Pandey claimed recently.
“It is proposed to dispose of these plots through e-auction as per the reserve price of individual plots based on the circle rates applicable as on today. It is clarified that in case Delhi government modifies the circle rates, the reserve price will be modified accordingly,” said Goel in his letter further.
The reserve price of the 132 plots on leasehold basis comes to Rs 3,73,89,25,714, the proposal said.
