SC to Punjab & Haryana HC, Real Estate News, ET RealEstate
CHANDIGARH: The Supreme Court (SC) has directed the Punjab and Haryana high court to adjudicate the dispute related to floor-wise sale of properties in the city at the earliest, preferably within two weeks. The SC also asked UT administration to submit survey report of properties within a week before the high court.

The SC passed these directions on Monday and a copy was made available on Tuesday. Earlier, the apex court had stayed the directions of the high court related to survey of estate office properties, where there has been transfer of shares.

The SC order reads, “We are informed that the survey has been completed and the authorities have to submit a report on the basis of the survey to the high court. The authorities are directed to submit a report on the survey which has already been completed within a week from today.

The high court can proceed with the hearing after taking into account the report and hearing the parties. The high court is requested to adjudicate the dispute in the write petition at the earliest preferably within a period of two weeks from today”.

Meanwhile, the matter also came for hearing before the high court on Tuesday. As the SC order’s copy was not available, the hearing was deferred for September 16.

The high court on July 27 had directed the administration to carry out a sample survey of estate office residential properties sold in the city between 2016 to December 31, 2019, on 50%, 30% and 20% basis to a person outside the family of the original owner or shareholder.

The court had directed the chief architect to conduct the survey within two weeks, fixing August 11 as the next date of hearing on a public interest litigation (PIL) filed by the Sector 10 Residents’ Welfare Association on the raising of apartments from the debris of bungalows.

Thereafter, a city resident Mamta Gupta had filed a special leave petition (SLP) in the Supreme Court. The division bench of Justice L Nageswara Rao and Justice Aniruddha Bose, in its order dated August 9, had issued notice to respondents.
