CHANDIGARH: The deadlock over the Self-Financing Employee Housing Scheme of 2008 is likely to get resolved, with employees “conditionally agreeing” to a proposal made by the UT administration in 2021.

In an application submitted with the Punjab and Haryana high court, the employees have stated, “Considering the time that has lapsed from the date of filing of the petition till now, and also that with every passing month, the allottees are getting retired and few have also left for the heavenly abode, on May 18, the petitioners put forth the proposal that the scheme as mentioned in affidavit of March 3, 2022, which was not acceptable to the petitioners at that time, could at least be given effect to, subject to final outcome of the writ petitions.”

The petitioners in the Gurmukh v/s Union of India case have further submitted, “Behind conditionally accepting the proposal was to ensure protection from future escalation and rising cost of construction, which will have adverse implication upon both the parties. Hence accordingly, vide order of May 18, the hon’ble court directed the counsel for the Chandigarh administration to seek instructions in regard to viable scheme.”

The CHB had received 7,811 applications for four categories of flats. On November 4, 2010, 3,930 applicants succeeded in getting the allotment in their favour in a draw of lots.

A total of 957 applicants challenged the action of the CHB whereby it changed the price of land from Rs 7,920 per square yard to Rs 74,131 per square yard
