Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) has taken a major step to seal the outstanding crores of land and sealed the Indirapuram Habitat center mall on Wednesday (July 04). According to the information, there are about 49 crore dues, which the Ghaziabad Development Authority took major action. The GDA team raided the mall in the early morning with administrative officials and took action for sealing. The shopkeepers were worried due to this harsh action was taken by GDA.
Ghaziabad Development Authority’s outstanding at the Habitat Center is about Rs. 49 crores. However, they issued several notices issued to the Habitat Center. But, after this, the Habitat Center did not pay the dues, after which this action was taken. Significantly, a part of the Habitat center mall has already been sealed with the amount of dispute. According to GDA executive engineer Hiralal Singh, GDA gave the land to the mall authority in installments. Repayment of these installments was continuously delayed. Since a Long time, GDA was asking to repay the dues from the Habitat Center management. Which they didn’t pay till yet.
However, GDA officials said that after paying the outstanding amount the seal will be opened. Priorly, while expressing inability to pay, the management of Habitat mall had requested to VC of GDA to automatically hand over some part of the mall, which was later rejected by VC Ritu Maheshwari.
DM Ghaziabad Ritu Maheshwari said that the construction in Habitat Center was completely different from the map. In addition, compounding was also done incorrectly. There was a stamp duty of 50 crore on the Habitat Center, due to which it has been sealed. In this regard, the notice was issued many times but no attention was given to it, after which this action had to be taken.
