1995 and got two plots, said, “The catch at that time was language of the affidavit, that read the applicant does not own any plot in the said urban estate where he was applying for a plot under the discretionary quota. I did not have a plot in Karnal, nor in Panchkula. I applied and got it. I had already sold off the Karnal plot because I did not like it. I have constructed a house on Panchkula plot.”
Justice G C Mittal said, “In those days, Haryana government offered plots to number of high court judges in Panchkula because it was being developed and nobody used to come and stay in Panchkula that time. I retired 19 years ago. I was Chief Justice of Delhi High Court when I sold both the plots. One was in my name, another was in my wife’s name.” Another such beneficiary, Justice J M Tandon, has passed away.
Gulab Singh, a former IAS officer, said, “I do not exactly remember now since the allotments are very old. I will have to check my records. I might have sold the plots.”
