In 1973, Babu Kailash Chandra a resident of Civil Lines, Raebareli leased an acre of land for 30 years to Kamla Nehru Education Society to build a college. Though the construction could never start, allegations were made that in 2003, the then secretary of the Education Society got the purpose of the land changed into Available for Freehold Plots. The land has a few shops located on it. After it received a number of complaints from these shopkeepers, the Prime Minister's Office took cognizance of the issue. The District Administration ordered an inquiry and found the allegations to be true. But, before the Administration could conclude the inquiry, the District Magistrate got transferred. The inquiry has been in cold storage since. Fearing that they may have to move shop, the shopkeepers went to the court. The court ordered FIRs to be lodged against all the people involved in this scam. The case is pending before the court.
