SC Hearing on Khori Gaon Demolitions

Oct 08, 2021

AAG: people may not come only with Aadhar.

Bench: problem is they may not have all documents as they have lost.

AAG: provisional we have no difficulty, but if in final allotment they have only aadhar, it will be difficult

Parikh: we’d given a suggestion regarding the e portal, we’d said it should have this information.

AAG: we’ve already replied, the portal is in both hindi and english. My submission is this is a stage where provisional allotments are being made. What is the need of having number of application being made.

Bench: If there’s a RTI would you not reply? Then why not update on your website.

AAG: On website it can be done.

Bench: so he’s asking it to be done on e portal that’s all.

Bench: We’ve heard counsels on question of nature of form to be submitted. For time being as interim arrangement we direct Corporation to process application if accompanied with Aadhar card or parivar pehchan patra to make provisional allotment subject to final verification.

Bench: Provisional allotment will not create any rights in favour of any person until he establishes his eligibility as mandated under the scheme. This observation is by way of interim arrangement and subject to final verification.

Bench: With regard to grievances in e portal, some corrective measures have been taken by Corporation. We call upon Corporation to upgrade portal by providing information in para 5 of representation made to corporation

Matter to be heard on October 22nd next.

Bhardwaj takes court through documents which are used as proof for issuance of Aadhar. Aadhar can be issued if one produces any of these documents if it has his name and photo.

Bench: We were saying for grant of provisional allotment, go through whatever documents they have to show their residence, which will late be verified by you. Can’t that be done

AAG: to that extent it’s possible. We are not inclined to take it as a proof

Parikh: In PM Awas Yojna there’s a provision..

Bench: the allotment is not under this yojna its under the rehabilitation scheme.

Bench: Our suggestion is, which he says seems to be acceptable, is that you will apply based on Aadhar. Then later you have to establish your eligibility under the scheme as propounded

Supreme Court is hearing a batch of pleas filed challenging the rehabilitation policy including the eligibility criteria framed by the Municipal Corporation of Faridabad with respect to the demolitions at Khori Gaon.

Sr Adv Sanjay Parikh for petitioner begins his submissions: Corporation has filed affidavit in response to all the issues raised earlier. Mr Bhardwaj can explain the affidavit.

AAG Arun Bhardwaj for Corporation: When matter was filed initially before Chandigarh HC, Aadhar was not their basis. A list of Documents are required for preparation of Aadhar card
