Replying to query in the assembly, Urban Development and Housing Minister Rajpal Singh admitted the Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) had acted “carelessly” in the matter.
“I admit that the Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) did not handle properly the case involving a plot of land worth Rs 150 crore. The JDA should have appealed to the civil court in the case but it appealed in the high court while knowing that the case was not within the jurisdiction of the high court,” the Minister said.
“After that, it appealed in the civil court but did not pay the court fee and allowed the case to get rejected. It shows how carelessly the matter was dealt,” he said in reply to a question asked by Independent MLA Hanuman Beniwal during the question hour.
The case was related to the allotment of 10 bighas of land which later became a matter of dispute.
Beniwal alleged the JDA gave all that laxity to the benefit of a particular real estate businessman who managed to get the land alloted in his name at an auction.
