Proposed Defence Colony falls in controversy pit
130 applicants have taken money back from SCHBS

EARLY TIMES REPORT
JAMMU, Oct 11: NEARLY 130 applicants had taken their money back from the Sainik Cooperative House Building Society (SCHBS), Jammu, given for allotment of the residential plots in proposed defence colony to be established by the Society.
Reason: the applicants allege that the scheme is totally fraud as no such land has been acquired by the housing society so far.
Those who have taken their money back said that the SCHBS had invited applications from serving as well as retired defence personnel for allocation of plots in a proposed Defence Colony to be built in 5000 kanals of land at Thandi Khui near Vijaypur. About 6,000 applicants had reportedly applied for those plots.
The proposed cost of one Kanal land in the said colony was kept at Rs 6 lakh 48 thousand and that of half kanal was about Rs 3 lakh and 24 thousand.
But the condition on the ground is that the society doesn’t have the required land for the colony, added former applicants.
According to the reports, the Cooperative House Building Society has so far collected a sum to the tune of Rs 18 crores from the interested people, but 130 applicants came to know about the scam in the said proposal and have got refund of their paid money.
Meanwhile, Sainik Colony Members Association (SCMA) has alleged that the management of the cooperative society has played a fraud to its members by violating the bye laws. As all the decisions are to be taken by majority votes in the Annual General Body Meetings of the Cooperative house building society but there were allegations that the office-bearers themselves took the decision keeping all the members in dark.
The association has claimed that neither the revenue officials of the tehsil and district Samba have confirmed that neither any land has been acquired or purchased by the cooperative house building society Jammu nor any land is available in the vicinity for bringing up a residential colony.
President Sainik Colony Members Association, Maj (Retd) B D Pangotra said that management had taken application fee as Rs 100 per application form and Rs 1000 as membership fee along with Rs 10,000 as registration fee from the all the applicants.
He further said that the proposal of the said colony was a big fraud as there was no land available for such colony anywhere. He also said that in the establishment of the proposed said colony, no legal procedure has been adopted by the management in consultation with the members.
The chairman of Cooperative House Building Society, K S Padwal, when contacted stated that only those people were applying for refund of the money, which did not have faith in the project. Besides the housing society has placed a notice that anybody could apply for refunding of the money. He also said that such projects takes time, and some members are busy in rumour mongering for vested interest.
