Uttar Pradesh



In the year 1989, Lucknow Development Authority (LDA) had launched Priyadarshani Yojna on Sitapur road. Hundreds of people had applied for the allocation of plots under the housing project. LDA asked the applicants to submit the entire money for the registration of plots along with the applications, which they did. But they were not given the possession to these apartments. When the allottees reached the project site to claim the possession of allocated houses, they got to know from the village residents that LDA has failed to acquire the mentioned land from the village residents. Applicants wrote several letters to the LDA complaining regarding the same, but received no response. After settling the issues regarding the acquisition with the farmers, LDA started giving the possession of these houses to the allottees along with the registries but the whereabouts of the plots of 123 applicants were unknown even to the LDA engineers. Some of these allottees appealed before the High Court. The high court ordered LDA to resolve the issues and give the plots to the applicants; but due to the absence of a land pool the LDA has not been able to accommodate these allottees even under other projects.
