Re: [IAC#RG] FYI: LG finally forwards IAC's 900 cr. UIDAI land scam complaint to DDA

All decisions have to be in larger public interest,meaning thereby that under the circumstances,with due diligence,no other better decision could have been taken,or was possible.For that a decision tree and decision matrix needs to be formed.Its a serious professional exercise and not a "feudal" one. For decades together  adhocist decisions have been taken and passed on as those taken "in public interest".
That was because of secrecy and lack of awareness on part of the civil society.
No more of it should be possible with enlightened citizenry getting hold of all malfeasance. Thats the importance of such excellent fora and activist persona.

Truly excellent work. You have been elevated to public enemy no. 3 status for NN.

Now as per the standard Modus Operandi followed by Kamal Nath's gang in such cases, BSNL and MTNL's CMDs will be heavily bribed/corrupted to give up their claims over this land in favour of UIDAI, and the Delhi High Court will dutifully direct that the land will be handed over to UIDAI as per their "compromise".

Dear IAC members

This UIDAI proposal came up today for hearing and enquiry. and after hearing me and another IAC affiliated expert, the Delhi Development Authority's statutory Board of Enquiry has indicated that they shall be accepting IAC's prayer to SCRAP the proposal to allow Change of Land Use for UIDAI';s Headquarters, and the proposal is being returned to the Ministry of Urban Development. After IAC highlighted that the land was a valuable piece of land being leased off for a pittance, it seems the DDA summoned the land alotting agency (L&DO)and it also transpired that the possession of the land (formerly with the DoT) is with the BSNL, and MTNL has laid claims to it (since land is in Delhi) but Kapil Sibal and Kamal Nath had mutually decided to oblige Nandan Nilekani on instructions of Pulok Chatterjee to get the DoT's land transferred to UIDAI (at throwaway price) taking advantage of the quarrel between BSNL and MTNL now pending in Delhi High Court.

It has also emerged that there is a major potential scandal involving the role of a Joint Secretary in the Ministry of Urban Development, and it is very likely that there shall be a full blown CBI and CAG enquiry into such land-grab scandals as the UIDAI's is only the tip of the iceberg, and at least 90 other large prime plots land use has been misclassified and/or changed causing loss of over Rs. 18,000 crores to DDA in the course of past 2 years.

LG finally forwards IAC's 900 cr. UIDAI land scam complaint to DDA

Murali Krishnan | India News Political Bureau, Delhi, Thursay August 01, 2013, 23:12 pm (IST)

The Lieut Governor of Delhi (LG) has finally forwarded today to the DDA the IAC National Convenor Sarbajit Roy's complaint of massive corruption in acquiring prime land by the UIDAI (Unique ID Authority of India) at throwaway prices due to the site's irregular use status. All the senior officers of the DDA, including DDA's Vigilance Director, had returned or refused to accept IAC's vigilance related complaint. The Delhi Development Authority is an autonomous statutory self financing authority set up under an Act of Parliament in 1956, but over the years has been converted into an extension of the LG's residence through a series of confidential letters issued by the Central Government under the said Act.

The text of India Against Corruption's complaint alleging the UIDAI has been transferred prime public land in Central Delhi at throw-away rates in conjunction with Delhi's land mafia is reproduced below.

Delhi Development Authority

Sub:  Public Notice No.F.20(11)2012/MP dt.26.06.13 u/s.11A published in Indian Express e-paper on 30.06.2013


Respected Sir

Kindly find below my objections and/or suggestions to the subject public notice for statutory consideration under sub-section 11-A(3) and otherwise


1) There is no reference to the specific site / land use of the modification in the present Master Plan, ie the so-called MPD-2021, or at least I am unable to find it in the MPD-2021 land-use plan available on the UDM website.

2) The public notice speaks of modifying the Zonal Development Plan for Zone-D. I say there is no such plan in existence. To the best of my knowledge the ZDP-2021 for Zone-D is not in existence. The last I heard was that a known incompetent private planner, some Mr. Ribiero or suchlike, had drafted up such a ZDP for the NDMC and DUAC to suit the the land mafia, but it was so patently atrocious and self serving that it is yet to see the light of day. So please show me the referred ZDP-2021 for Zone-D as I am yet to see it. It is pertinent that I am a long time resident of Zone D which, unlike every other planning zone, has no ZDP and I fail to see why I am being discriminated against in planning issues.

3) I object that the lack of an up-do-date ZDP for Zone-D is allowing some organisations to swallow land notified for public and semi-public use and convert them into govt offices by misuse of section 11A. The most blatant such example being APPU GHAR which was swallowed by Supreme Court and DMRC, and in which all the public objections opposing the CLU were CORRUPTLY ignored by DDA. The SC used the land to sell to its advocates to set up private law chambers and the DMRC put up a tall commercial building to house some Railway Freight Corporation.

4) I object that there is no such "authority" known as UIDAI. The law to set it up is yet to be passed by Parliament, and the UIDAI is functioning, illegally, on the basis of an EGOM resolution whereby a private industrialist Shri Nandan Nilekani of INFOSYS was secretly appointed its Chairman without following due process and given the status of a Union Minister. I have established this under RTI, as I was the person who brought UIDAI within ambit of RTI as an extension of the Planning Commission. It is pertinent that when the Planning Commission received a copy of the CIC order in my case, they immediately asked Mr. Nilenkani and his team to vacate their offices within Planning Commission building within 48 hours. UIDAI then had to hire offices in Jeevan Bharati Building virtually overnight. The JPC (Joint Parliamentary Committee) has also objected to the UIDAI and said it is a useless body which should be scrapped.

5) It is thus clear that after I exposed UIDAI as being a fraudy outfit, they have managed to CORRUPTLY acquire a vacant plot of land in 2010-11 which is the subject of this CLU. It needs a CBI / CAG investigation as to who all in the Ministry of Urban Development or it's offices like L&DO / DDA etc. transferred the land which was Public/Semi-Public use in nature. It needs to be seen if the plot was acquired on commercial rates or it was a concessional allocation. The entire land acquisition / transfer file should be provide to objectors. There must be a CBI/CAG/ACB investigation into the modus operandi that the plot is acquired at a cheap rate and then the land mafia upgrades it to commercial use (UIDAI is a semi-PRIVATE concern) by bribing MoUD officers and ministers of UPA govt. It is pertinent that INFOSYS has aquired a 1,000 sq yard plot in Vasant Vihar (Zone-F) last year for about Rs. 105 crores, so the land rate for a prime plot in Zone D should not be less than Rs. 20 lakhs per sq yard or about Rs. 900 crores for a 4,40 sq yard plot.

6) This CLU change will have significant alterations in local / site population density. Hence the CLU must be considered by the Central Government u/s 11A(2) only. The DDA has no role to play other than issuing the statutory notice. Members of the Authority have no role to play either, and their participation in any Board of Enquiry and Hearing is a breach of statutory provision which shall be reported to the CBI and the ACB.

7) The UIDAI already has a massive Headquarter at Bangalore / Karnataka. I seem to recall that the ZDP/ MP2021  and the NCR plans not only mandates that no new Government offices are to come up in Delhi, but also that the existing ones are to shift out of Delhi. Therefore what kind of precedent is being set by such CORRUPT CLU public notices

8) Please take clear notice that the citizens could not object when the DDA approved numerous spot CLUs to oblige the Delhi High Court and the Supreme Court of India to grab land all over Delhi to accommodate their advocate's chambers only because their judges are a law unto to themselves under the Judges Inquiry Act and the SC judgments. However, for such corrupt CLUs like the instant one, DDA officers shall and will be reported to the CBI/CAG/ACB if they persist in rolling over to approve perverse CLUs to grossly favour semi-private irregular operators like UIDAI who are being facilitated to grab PUBLIC land at throwaway prices.

9) Not only is UIDAI so confident that their CLU will be approved, they have already conducted a design competition for their building - the winning bid for which seems to have a hugely tall structure well over the 15 meter height limit. It is thus clear that UIDAI / land mafia have advance information about  impending Master Plan changes to allow this. This is also definitely a matter which falls for the CBI etc. to investigate considering that the sub-zone (which may be D4 or D5) is a low profile zone with many heritage structures. [http://www.architizer.com/en_us/projects/view/uidai-headquarters-at-delhi/40953/#.UdE7qpxR7Dw]

10) Accordingly, I SUGGEST that this CLU be scrapped and/or returned to the MoUD.

yours faithfully
