Corp's bitumen sale irks contractors THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The sale of bitumen for road works at prices higher than the market rate by the city corporation has invited protest from the corporation contractors. The contractors have raised complaints that the engineering wing has been charging them more than Rs 50,000 per metric tonne of bitumen while corporation purchases bitumen from Kochi at a rate of less than Rs 40,000. This apparent difference of more than Rs 10,000 has been pushing the contractors to crisis with scarce sum left as profit, the contractors said. The engineering wing has been charging the contractors with new rates as per the revised schedule rates. However, they point out that when corporation purchases bitumen at a much lesser rate, the contractors are forced to suffer huge loss. As per the system, corporation buys bitumen and then supplies it to contractors. Even a small work of Rs 10 lakh related to construction or maintenance of road would require four-five tonnes of bitumen and contractors have been bearing the loss of Rs 10,000 for each tonne ever since the schedule rates were revised. Works standing committee chairman V S Padmakumar said that as per the files, the amount of purchase is Rs 55,000 and hence it has to be deducted from contractors. "I haven't looked into the matter closely. If there is discrepancy, it will be solved," he said. Information obtained through RTI shows that corporation buys bitumen at Rs 39,852 per metric tonne. The conveyance charge is Rs 2,620 per MT. The contractor is charged Rs 55,900, about Rs 15,000 higher than the actual rate. RTI query also reveals that no handling charges are levied from the contractors. The contractors are also being made to pay Rs 285 for every empty barrel even though it is clearly mentioned in the RTI reply that corporation buys packed bitumen. The corporation carries out maintenance works worth Rs 20-26 crore in various wards under different heads in a fiscal. "If the contractor is made to suffer loss for works of such huge nature, we will have to shift to protest mode," said a contractor. The civic body has purchased a total of 2,182 barrel of bitumen between January and March 2015. Six and-a-half barrels account for a tonne of bitumen as per the estimates of engineering wing. "There has to be an answer as to where does the extra money go. The purchase amount is much lesser than what we are made to pay. At the end of a work, we are left with nothing and at this rate no new work can be taken up," another contractor said. The corporation already owes contractors arrears worth Rs 7 crore for works undertaken with plan fund. Read More: Corp's bitumen sale irks contractors - The Times of India
karira posted a topic in RTI in MediaCosmos City project sale illegal, says DTCP GURGAON: After TOI reported that around 400 investors were allegedly duped by a developer in a multi-crore housing scam in Sector 103, a government probe has revealed that Adel Landmarks violated norms by selling off the Cosmos City project on Dwarka Expressway to another developer after taking 25% of the cost for each flat. The report by the department of town and country planning (DTCP) has recommended strict action, including filing of FIRs, against Adel Landmarks for selling off its subsidiary company, Identity Buildtech Limited, which was developing the Cosmos City project, to another builder - Ansal Housing and Construction Limited - without the department's knowledge and allegedly cheating 432 investors. The report, prepared by the then senior town planner Kamal Kumar has come to the fore, thanks to a response to an RTI query by one of the investors, K K Khurana. According to the probe report, Adel Landmarks Limited sold off Identity Buildtech Limited, along with all its assets, by entering into a share purchase agreement with Ansal Housing and Construction Limited. The whole process - which amounts to transfer of license - had taken place without the knowledge of DTCP, the licensing authority. In fact, the probe was ordered by the then principal secretary of town and country planning, TC Gupta, after TOI had exposed the scam in July last year and reported that a project by the second builder was coming up on that land. The then senior town planner, Kamal Kumar, carried out the inquiry. Kumar has recommended action against the developer for breach of terms and conditions of license. "DTP (enforcement), Gurgaon, has sent a complaint to the commissioner of police, Gurgaon, for lodging an FIR against the offenders," he said in the reports. When contacted, the additional chief secretary to DTCP, P Raghvendra Rao, told TOI, "After the case came to light, the department had even initiated action against the developer and a show-cause notice as to why the builder's licence should not be cancelled was issued to the builder." He added, "During a hearing, Adel's representatives had said that the claims of all investors would be settled by refund of their money along with interest. Another notice was issued on January 22 this year. The report is being compiled and further action will be taken after the compilation of the report." A spokesperson for Adel Landmarks said, "We have already replied to the notice issued by the DTCP on February 6 and apprised him of the progress of the refunds to investors. We assure that all the dues of the investors will be settled." Read More: Cosmos City project sale illegal, says DTCP - The Times of India
Hi Friends, I am from Ahmedabad, Gujarat. My question is, can a builder sale a terrace to any party in a corporate building. Our office is situated in maninagar area and the builder has sold the terrace to some health club and they are not allowing anybody to go to terrace. Is that legal to sale a terrace or to give it on rent basis? Is there any law or details regarding this. Please let me know. Thanks, Shailen
Hello, I did purchase a flat in March 2010, in a registered society having all documentation and OC clear. But there has been a huge fight among the society members and the society committee has been dissolved since. The fight was so terrible that there wasnt even a society bill for a whole year. Its been more than a year now, but neither the bill name has been changed to mine, neither the share certificate. Now, I am looking forward to selling the flat, but as there is no committee, nothing can be done. What is a solution to this. There is neither a secretary, treasurer or chairman in the society at the moment too. Please help. Alwyn.
gowindo posted a question in Ask for RTI SupportHi friends First of all, all of you guys are doing a great job helping each other on this forum. Congrats on the folks who run the site and the active participants. Here is my query. My father sold a two-wheeler to another person in Coimbatore last year, through a 'two-wheeler agent'. Since we moved out of Coimbatore, we could not collect the delivery slip as proof of delivery/sale. We are also not in a position to travel to Coimbatore and pursue the matter. There has been no response from the agent for the last one year. However, one good thing, we requested someone to find out from RTO Coimbatore North, if the vehicle has been transferred. The RTO office, apparently has confirmed the transfer and we now also have the name and address of the buyer and also the Transfer Effective Date. No contact number though. Since we have no documentary proof of the sale/transfer of the vehicle, we wish to write to the RTO office (North), Coimbatore asking information in the following way. Please advise if this is alright. Also, if you know of any format for TN RTI applications, let me know. 1. Name and address of the current owner of the vehicle Or alternatively, is it better to ask : 1. Name and addresses of all transfers of the vehicle since, say, 14th September 2007. (Effective date of our transfer). 2. Photocopy of the RC Book Endorsement. Do you think the RTO keeps copies of the RC book endorsement ? If so, is it available under RTI Act ? 3. Photocopy of the Insurance. ( We are particularly interested in having some documentary proof of the insurance transfer. ) 4. Heard that the RTO office Coimbatore does not have photocopies of RC book endorsements, but they maintain something called the 'B' register (not sure about the name of the register), where they keep the transfer records apart from computerised records. Can we ask for a copy of the relevant page from the register ? Also, I am planning to send a DD for Rs.10/- since I am not sure if court fee stamps from AP will be valid in TN. Also, Do you know anyone in Coimbatore, may be a lawyer, who could get this done for us (drafting, submission, followup and forwarding of the docs received to us etc) for a fee ? (on our signing the application). Will appreciate all help. Thanks once again for the forum. Jai Hind. Govind.
As reported by Anshika Misra Friday, January 11, 2008 06:18 IST http://www.dnaindia.com/report.asp?newsid=1144315 Mukand plot sale: Rane, CM hand alleged The Bombay High Court was told on Wednesday that there was material to suggest â€œdirect involvement of revenue minister and possibly even the chief ministerâ€ in the alleged concessions â€” that resulted in a loss of Rs100 crore to the exchequer â€” given to Mukand Ltd for the sale of its Kurla land. Lawyer Subhash Jadhav, who had filed a PIL challenging a 2005 government order granting â€œundueâ€ concessions to Mukand Ltd for the sale of land in Kurla, made these allegations on Wednesday. Jadhavâ€™s lawyer Shrihari Aney sought an adjournment to file an application under the Right to Information (RTI) Act to get the relevant documents. He added that the new facts had only recently been brought to the petitionerâ€™s notice. The High Court adjourned the matter till January 31. The PIL focuses on the sale of a sprawling plot situated on LBS Marg in December 2005 for Rs221 crores to a consortium of four developers. Mukand Ltd, which is jointly-owned by former West Bengal governor Viren Shah and industrialist Neeraj Bajaj, was required to pay 50 per cent of the amount to the government as the plot was given to them at a concession in 1950 to set up a steel plant. However, on September 14, 2005, revenue minsister Narayan Rane spared Mukand Ltd from paying 50 per cent of the landâ€™s market value, the petition alleged. The petitioner said Rane had placed the order before chief minister Vilasrao Deshmukh, who endorsed it. The petitioner claimed to have got the copy of the order under RTI Act. The order was not placed before the cabinet.
